Property of our family since 1566, the Château de Montmelas, located at the foot of the village of Montmelas Saint Sorlin (69640), originally a stronghold of the Lords of Beaujeu. Residing few days in our cottage, you have the opportunity to discover this vineyard overlooking the valley: its towers and battlements, its view of the vineyards and surrounding the entire valley of the Saone. To discover the history of this castle and that of its owners and to taste our wine, do not hesitate to contact us (http:. // Www. Chateau-montmelas com /).

For other sports activities will find yourself near the Paint Ball Target and Nature (www. And target-kind. Com) and the Acrobranche park over the trees in Blacé (www. Aufildesarbres. Fr).

Montmelas, discover the wine route and Beaujolais crus: Chiroubles, Fleurie, Saint-Amour, Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly, Julienas, Régnié, Chénas, Morgon and Moulin-à-Vent.

Browse also the route of Golden Stone Beaujolais. It runs through the most beautiful villages in the region, with a stone habitat of an orange color that brings light to this particular region. Lyon, visit Alix, Frontenas (pretty washhouse) or Bagnols, Theizé (Rochebonne castle and the old church), Oingt (one of the most beautiful villages in France), Jarnioux (front of his castle to 6 rounds), Cogny, Lacenas (Companions of the Beaujolais winery, chapel Sainte Paule and castle Sou) Montmelas and its castle, Saint Cyr Chatoux (goat cheese and hiking trails), then Rivolet.

The ridge road

To the west of Anse, the 'ridge road' (D 70) stands offering beautiful views of the Saone valley and the vineyards of southern Beaujolais: Chapel Buisante to Apple, Lachassagne, Marcy-sur- Anse (tower of the telegraph), Charnay (Church of eleventh and twelfth century), Saint Jean des Vignes, Charnay and Alix.

Finally visit Lyon!
