Charming landscapes, typical villages with golden stones houses, a winding wine route through hilly vineyards… Be prepared to discover an endearing region, that goes well beyond world known Beaujolais nouveau… Some even call it the little Tuscany ! You will explore Beaujolais from Pierres Dorées area to Northern Cru area, on the edge of Burgundy.You will get acquainted with Gamay and how the grape expresses itself in the different terroirs. As for the food, the word you will certainly hear the most is « mâchon » : a light (so to speak!) snack of local charcuterie, cheese, rustic bread…with Beaujolais wine of course, for a convivial note ! But Beaujolais also offers a lot of traditional Auberges and gourmet dining as well.

Beaujolais is located halfway between two other major wine regions : Burgundy in the north, with legendary Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune but also lesser-known area of Côte Chalonnaise and Maconnais and the steep vineyards of Northern Rhone, on the other side of UNESCO listed city of Lyon. Staying in Beaujolais, is also the perfect occasion to visit gourmet village of Vonnas, in nearby Bresse region for a fantastic 3 Michelin stars meal at Georges Blanc restaurant, one of France’s top chefs.
