Louhans is a commune in the Saône-et-Loire department in the region of Bourgogne in eastern France.

Louhans is the capital of Bresse bourguignonne. The main street, dating from the eleventh century, is very typical with arches and stores all along. It is very touristic and quiet and is perfect for green tourism.

The town is home to the lower division French football club CS Louhans-Cuiseaux.



The Vallière forms part of the commune's south-eastern border, then flows into the Solnan, which forms part of the commune's southern border. The Solnan flows into the Seille in the town. The Seille flows south-southwestward through the western part of the commune and crosses the town.
