Activities and Attractions

Belleville (2 miles / 3kms away)
It is situated along the main traffic links and is the ideal starting point for a tour of the Beaujolais and its great wines. Founded in the 12 th cebtury by Humbert III, the Sire of Beaujeu, Belleville quickly grew into a centre of trade and commerce, thanks to its traders, barrel-makers and river port. Two monuments bear witness to its rich past, the church of Notre-Dame and the Hôtel-Dieu.

The city also often enjoys a more modern and sporty atmosphere when it hosts a stage of the Paris-Nice cycling race and the yearly international Montgolfiades (hot air ballons) in the Beaujolais, to the great amusement of the young and old.

Le Beaujolais (3miles / 5 kms away)
Everybody knows the Beaujolais is worldwide famous. Spreading from the North of the Rhône Département to the South of the Saône-et-Loire Département, this region is worth visiting, staying and even touring. Beaujeu is the historic capital of this old French province, hence its name, but the current official capital is Villefranche-sur-Saône.

Château de Fléchère - Fareins (5 miles / 7kms away)
It is a remarkable monument. Another interesting thing about it is that it has always been a Protestant temple.

La Basilique, église du St. Ars-sur-Formans (16 km)
When the Curé of Ars, St. Jean-Marie Vianney, first saw the modest church of Ars, it looked like most Romanesque churches in Ain. One of his first concerns was to restore the building.
The choir section is all that is left of the 12th century church and it is too small to welcome today's crowds. The side chapels ordered by the Curé of Ars bear witness to his zeal and devotion.
Before dying, he approved the expansion plan of the Basilica which he wished to dedicate to Saint-Philomena. Bossan, the Fourvière Basilica architect, later carried out the plans. The church now hosts the preserved body of the Holy Curate in a shrine.
