The Beaujolais region is above all its world-famous vineyard which creates the event every year in France but also in the whole world since bottles are also tasted on the borders of Japan. From Clochemerle to Saint Amour, the Beaujolais villages located in the centre of the Beaujolais vineyards have for the most part a cru that bears their name. They are also charming villages with often picturesque town centres and really worthwhile sites, not far from the wine estates that can be visited. You will appreciate in particular Beaujeu, the historical capital of the region, for its beautiful church, its Museum of Arts and Popular Traditions or even its oil mill. Belleville-sur-Saône has on its side a superb Hôtel-Dieu built at the beginning of the 18th century, near the castles of Corcelles and Pizay, both a pretext for a beautiful walk over time. Between mountains and valleys, Beaujolais is also a green nature where outdoor activities are very enjoyable: hiking, horse riding or mountain biking will delight nature lovers. Also a breeding ground, a visit to the region can be the opportunity to visit farmers who show their farms and taste their products. Finally, don't forget to explore the southern Beaujolais, near Lyon, to visit its yellow ochre stone villages. There are indeed about thirty of them, built from limestone at a time when quarries offered an abundance of it, hence the pretty sunny colour of their buildings which today make visitors happy, like the village of Theizé which, with its beautiful light in the middle of the vineyards, would almost look like Italy.
