Carte Sud de la Bourgogne à vélo

The heritage on the route is also a strong point with well-preserved medieval villages nestled on top of hills and imposing castles.

Some call Beaujolais “French Tuscany”.

Day 1: Arrival in Lyon

Arrival in Lyon from where a taxi transfer will take you to your hotel in Anse or Ambérieux d'Azergues. We will give you the information and documents to ensure you have a good bike trip.

Day 2: from Anse/Ambérieux d'Azergues to Vaux en Beaujolais - 44 km

Your cycling journey begins in La Terre des Pierres Dorées. Traditional houses were built with stones cut from a rare type of limestone, which gives a golden hue to the buildings made from it. The authentic and preserved villages offer a journey through time to their visitors.

The positive altitude difference of 920m will give you a bit of a challenge (unless you opt for the VAE) but also and above all breathtaking panoramic views. Oingt, among the most beautiful villages in France, is great proof of this. This fortified city offers a 360° view from its medieval tower.

Night in Vaux en Beaujolais.

Today, some pretty appellations are on the program: Moulin à Vent, Chénas, Fleurie, Julienas or Saint Amour. You are in the Beaujolais valley. Before reaching Mâcon, you pass next to the Roche de Solutré. A unique landscape that leaves no stone unturned. When you see it, you will know.
