My family and I (wife and 10yr old son) enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Truly unique gite situated within the grounds of a walled castle... what more is there to say? Only that it is also surrounded by beautiful hilly scenery covered by gamay vines! Wonderful place to set up camp and explore the beaujolais region.
Thank you nice to welcome you
Great place, wonderful hospitality, fascinating history, region and location.
We were in the area for one day of business and five days of wine touring and general exploring of the Beaujolais region. The weather was a very pleasant early spring with wild cherries and daffodils blooming but no leaves on the trees yet, clear, highs in the mid fifties. You can easily see the snow capped Alps in the eastern distance, with Mont Blanc looming tall over the other peaks. Our hosts could not have been nicer or more interesting. The place itself is at once grand, rustic, and absolutely genuine. The accommodations are perfect for a family. It would be a great base for bicycle touring (either on or off road) as well as the more hedonistic samplings of great food and wine!.
This is the kind of find that makes VRBO such a useful service!
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 you will find near the park Acrobranche Au fil des Arbres in Blacé (www.fildesarbres.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. From 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 (facade of its castle at 6 towers), Cogny, Lacenas (Sainte Paule chapel and the Sou castle), Montmelas and its castle, Saint Cyr le Chatoux, (goat cheeses 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!
