Beaujolais des Pierres dorées
Located in the south of Beaujolais near Lyon, the Beaujolais des Pierres Dorées is certainly a favourite!
In this place, the village streets light up and change colours as the day progresses. This very special golden stone is made of limestone which, when stained with iron oxides, takes on that golden colour.
The Pierres Dorées region is a stroll through small cities with characters such as Ternand, Châtillon d'Azergues, and Charnay. Not to forget the jewel in the middle of this region. Oingt, the only village in the Rhône Department ranked as one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France!
You should not miss the castle of Bagnols, the Château de Rochebonne and the Château de Rapetour in Theizé. You can go on foot for a hike, in duo on a motorbike or even on a bike. Any means can be used to get around.
Located at the southern gateway to the Beaujolais Wine Route, the hilly landscapes of the Pierres Dorées offer remarkable views from one village to another.
Don't forget your cameras: the most beautiful pictures are made of Golden Stones!
