Between mounts and valleys, the Beaujolais whose wine reputation no longer needs to be made, is 60 kilometers North of Lyon and 1 hour and a half far from Paris with the High Speed Train (TGV Mâcon-Loché Station) and is 1 hour and a half drive from the Lyon-St Exupéry Airport.
At the crossroads of 3 "départements" : the Rhône (69), the Saône et Loire (71) and the Ain (01) and in the junction of 2 regions (Rhône-Alpes and Burgundy), its location explains the wealth of its environment and gastronomy.
Its geographic diversity is remarkable :
The red Beaujolais whose landscapes change as the seasons go by, kaleidoscope of vineyards endlessly (its "Grands Crus" road and its tasting cellars), meadows and fields.
The green Beaujolais in the mounts with its forests, footpaths and stock breeding activities.
The blue Beaujolais which is the Val de Saône crossed by main arteries with one of the biggest French major route (Nationale 6, Highway A6, High Speed Train Paris - Mâcon-Loché - Lyon - Marseille), departure towards the Alps, Switzerlands and the Mediterranean.
Bordering on the Rhône (69) :
the Saône et Loire (71) has a well-established reputation for its white wines and its Charolais stock breeding
the Ain (01) with 2 famous areas :
La Bresse and its poultries
La Dombes with its ponds and fishing
All contributes to make the Beaujolais an attractive region : its charm, its contrasts and its quality of life, all appreciated and recognized by the tourists.
