Beaujolais Medieval Village Tour - Self Guided Walking Holiday in Beaujolais, France

Beaujolais Medieval Village Tour - Self Guided Walking Holiday in Beaujolais, France | Beaujolais | Scoop.it
High Point Holidays independent walking holiday through the 'Golden Stones Country' in Beaujolais visits some of the prettiest villages in France with fortified remains and chateaux adorning the vine covered slopes.
High Point Holidays's insight:

Starts everyday from the beginning of March until the end of October.

£635 p/p based on 2 sharing (single supplement £165).

8 days: 6 days independent walking moving between guest houses.

Made up of about 40 parishes in the South of the Beaujolais region, the area known as the “Golden stones” (pierre dorées), is so called due to the colour of the limestone used in its historic buildings. Here, your walking holiday will pass through a number of remarkable villages with some of the prettiest villages in France perched on hilly promontories. Wherever you look, you'll find fortified remains, chateaux or churches adorning the vine covered slopes. The scale and gentleness of the slopes has created a sumptuous landscape of interlocking hills receding to the horizon, that literally leaves you with the impression of flying over the hills. This picturesque wine growing area is often referred to as the local Tuscany due to the similarities in their expansive landscapes. Your French walking holiday covers a circular tour around the heart of this golden stones area, visiting about 15 of these picturesque and well preserved villages. For the most part, the region is relatively undiscovered in terms of walking holidays and therefore you will enjoy quiet, unspoilt trails.

This discovery self-guided walking holiday in France lets you explore two of the prettiest parts of the Beaujolais and Burgundy at your own rhythm, whilst indulging yourself at wonderful guest houses.  You’ll stay in two bases, one in an area known as the “Golden stones country” (pierres dorées) of Beaujolais, due to the warm colour of the limestone which make up a number of remarkable historic villages that are set in a sumptuous landscape of interlocking hills covered in vines. Made up of about 40 parishes, this picturesque wine growing area, is often referred to as the French Tuscany. Your second base will be in the southern Burgundy and northern Beaujolais where you'll enjoy a variety of experiences, including the famous Maconnais vineyards bordering the Saône, a number of rocky outcrops with wonderful views such as the celebrated “roche de Solutré” important for its pre-historic human activity, the forests of the high ridges and secluded valleys covered in a patchwork of grazing fields.

Beautiful Beaujolais Trail - Self Guided Walking Holiday in France

Beautiful Beaujolais Trail - Self Guided Walking Holiday in France | Beaujolais | Scoop.it
Independent walking tour crossing the beautiful Beaujolais region in France from north to south. Staying at lovely small guest houses and vineyards with wine tasting
High Point Holidays's insight:

7 nights - £610 - 6 days self guided walk traversing the region       

£610 per person based on 2 sharing (single supplement £170)     

This self-guided walking holiday in the Beaujolais region of France explores the full range of beautiful landscapes found throughout this relatively quiet French area. Starting in the north, the walk crosses the luxuriant High Beaujolais hills where fields of pasture give way to forest on the highest hills with breathtaking views. You'll then descend to cross some of the famous Beaujolais vineyards on the slopes of the Saone Valley, before crossing a series of deep valleys covered in vines.  Despite the relatively gentle nature of  their slopes, the scale of the peaks and the depths of the valleys create a  landscape of great panoramas and rich contrasts. Your experience quickly changes from secluded intimate valleys to panoramic ridges and back again.
