Your stopover in Villefranche-sur-Saône, capital of Beaujolais
During your stay in our hotel-restaurant in Villefranche-sur-Saône, you will have plenty of time to visit the capital of the Beaujolais region and discover its extraordinary heritage. Created in the 12th century, the town has preserved some superb old buildings such as the Cour des Fleurons, a little jewel of the 15th century, the Maison Giliquin with its well, or the Maison de Madame Roland with its large façade and its 17th century ironwork. Another not-to-be-missed stop on your visit to the town is the Rue Nationale, a veritable open-air gallery stretching for almost a kilometre, where you will find the Collégiale Notre-Dame des Marais with its superb flamboyant facade, listed as a historic monument, and its Romanesque bell tower. Nearby, the town's famous and imposing covered market, whose architecture is inspired by religious art, is also worth a visit.
the Little Beaujolais Tuscany
A few kilometres from our hotel, the south of Beaujolais, a lively and luminous land, also known as "Little Beaujolais Tuscany", is famous for its charming villages, which have been awarded the "Vignobles et Découvertes" label since 2010 and are built of yellow ochre stone that harmoniously reflects the sun's rays. It is a landscape of gentle hills, sometimes dotted with vines, sometimes with forest paths, that will lead you to discover these villages. You will be charmed by the beauty of the landscape which serves as a backdrop to this exceptional built heritage: Bagnols with its 13th century castle, Chatillon-d'Azergues and its medieval buildings, Oingt, a perched and fortified village listed as one of the "most beautiful villages in France", Chessy-les-Mines and its 12th century castle, or Lacenas and its Sou castle, an architectural jewel...
The Beaujolais is also a generous land with high quality wines and culinary specialities to be discovered without further delay.
