The village of Tanlay has a population of 1000 people, you'll find the minimum necessities in the village with a boulangerie and a couple of restaurants.

The port is well managed with deep water and good bollards making it a good place to turn larger barges. The port has been one of our favourite places to moor as the surroundings are calm and restful.

The 16th Renaissance-style Chateau of Tanlay is a grand visit and an easy 2-minute walk from the canal port. There is a delightful restaurant just beside the Chateau entrance called "La Basse Cour de Tanlay". You will also find a good 9-hole golf course within the castle grounds.

The village is a bit in the middle of nowhere, and this gives you plenty of cycling opportunities. For example Chablis town center is only 26km away.
