In the historic framework of a city founded in 1163 and which had the status of the Royal City, Villeneuve-sur-Yonne has been able to preserve significant architectural remains (donjon, towers, moats, wash houses, church, bridge, fortified doors, etc.). It is now a human scale city where it is very pleasant to live in.
Rich of a diversified trade activity (convenience stores, market, superstore, crafts, etc.), a significant cultural offer (museums, exhibitions, theater, organ festival), a quality touristic industry (hiking, bathing, water sports, horse riding, camping) and a very developed associative life (80 associations), Villeneuve-sur-Yonne knows how to welcome its visitors and make their stay unforgettable.
