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.
