The Beaujolais Region

The Beaujolais of the “Pierres Dorées”

A living, luminus land

Not far from Lyon and its many attractions, including the Saint-Jean district, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will find Domaine du Mont Verrier, located in the hills above Saint Julien as you head towards Montmelas and a kilometre from the Claude Bernard Museum.

This charming abode is a perfect example of the buildings found in the “Pierres Dorées” area of the Beaujolais region. It has the typical architecture of the local villages, built with yellow ochre-coloured stones that reflect the sunlight and give this part of the Beaujolais, nicknamed “the Beaujolais Tuscany”, its original character.

Welcome to the Beaujolais region, which has been awarded the UNESCO “Geopark” label, aimed at promoting the landscapes and the unique plant biodiversity associated with one of the most complex geologies in France and Europe!
