Macon is a commune in central France in the region of Burgundy, situated on the Saone river. It is also the prefecture of the Saone-et-Loire department. With some of its buildings painted burnt sienna, buttermilk and rose Macon has a distinctly Mediterranean feel and looks to the south for its inspiration.

Macon originates from the establishment of an oppidum and a river port by the Celts at the beginning of the first century BC. It developed significantly during the age of the Romans and was fortified in the fourth century. During the Middle Ages Macon was the administrative centre of a county belonging to the Duchy of Burgundy and controlled access to present-day Lamartinien Valley. In 1790 the government designated Macon as the capital of Saône-et-Loire, a newly-created department. In 1814 the town was invaded by Austrian troops and then liberated twice by French troops before being permanently occupied until the fall of the Empire. After Napoléon’s return and the subsequent Hundred Days' War, Macon was again captured by the Austrians.

A two-day trip
Two days is just enough time to get to know the city of Macon. Premiere Classe Hotel Macon is just a short taxi ride from the city centre where you will want to head for your first day. Spend the day admiring the beauty of the likes of the Macon Cathedral and the Eglise Saint Pierre in the morning before discovering the charm of the wooden house, built in 1490, and the remains of Vieux Saint-Vincent, and admiring the view of the city on the Saint-Laurent bridge in the afternoon. For day two why not get to know the history of the city by visiting some of its museums. Musee des Ursulines, an old convent and prison, and the city’s Museum of Fine Arts are some of the highlights.

A one-week break
A whole week is the perfect amount of time to get to know the city of Macon and the surrounding region of Burgundy. Macon boasts some beautiful chateaus to visit such as Chateau Saint-Jean and Chateau des Perrieres, located on a hill overlooking the town. The region has many wineries and vineyards just waiting to offer you a tour while located in the Pouilly-Fuisse vineyard stands a precipitous rock named La Roche de Solutre standing 495 metres that can be hiked up for great panoramic views.

A family holiday
Macon makes for a great place to take the whole family ! Whether it is catching a show at the Theatre of Macon, taking a swim in the Municipal Olympic Pool of Macon or taking a river boat cruise down one of the city’s many rivers there will be something for everybody !

The city is served by the Macon-Charnay Airport, located in the city, which offers a selection of regional and European flights. There are two train stations: one in the city centre which offers local connections and one 10km outside of the city offering TGV connections to Paris and Lyon. If you are driving then the A6 connects Macon to Paris and Lyon and the A40 to Geneva. Trema provide the city’s extensive bus system.

Macon has many traditional local produces that are used in various classic recipes distinctive to the city. A classic is the snail, which is a symbol of the Burgundy region, either served as a starter or used in more sophisticated meals. The region produces high quality meat with the very tender Charolais beef, typically served with potatoes, vegetables and a fine red wine from the region’s vineyards. While Maconnais goat cheese and the city’s huge variety of fish caught from its many rivers feature regularly on restaurant menus.


The region of Burgundy provides a lengthy list of festivals and events to attend all throughout the year. Festival du Mot in June combines theatre, debate, poetry and street shows providing enough culture to keep everyone happy. Festival Cine-Retro, taking place in August, is the famous silent film festival showing some of the classics from the silent era. While on top of these there is also the Sun Festival in July, the Fete de la Vieille folk festival in August and the renowned Chalon dans la Rue street arts festival in July to name just a few.

Interesting fact
During World War II Macon was the first town in the unoccupied ‘zone libre’ between Paris and Lyon.
