We walked up this rock. We are not the fittest but most parts are not too step and it took 20 minutes. The view from the top is fantastic. Do not just sit there looking at the rock, go and climb it,it will be worth it!! Also this is free.

We have made the walk several times. In hot weather it can be arduous. The views from the top are well worth the effort. The museum was not so great but never the less interesting, especially for children. Go prepared with good footwear, water and even a snack. Plenty of wine growers in the area so some tasting might be... More

Hot on day, walked up 10 am better to do even earlier if can in the summer. It was about 30 degrees when we started. Relatively easy to walk up and be so easy in cool weather. View still fantastic though. Would have liked to have done the round trip of three

On arrival you see the rock from a distance and you park the car at the very foot of it. Do not be irritated, as the path first goes downhill and away from the rock, but you will find the entry after some 200 m on the left. Walking to the peak takes you some 20 - 25 minutes, the... More

Great walk up le solutre, there are anchoring points at the top for rock climbing/abseiling, there are different walking paths up the hill not just from the main car park. Museum is a little bit tired looking and the 'gardens' were non existing, bit like an excavation site. We didnt visit the coffee shop but i think there is one.... More

Good walk up to the top, with incredible views. The museum was full of school parties and we skipped it. The museum charges admission, the walks to the Rock and up it are free! The visitor centre was interesting too.

Organise your day around this pleasant walk to the top of the famous French rock: in the middle of nowhere, lost in Beaujolais, this gaint rock (dating back 150 mln years) was a favourite destination for the late French president François Mitterrand. You may organise eating a lunch before or after the visit in the nearby quality food restaurants. The... More

We took a scramble track up the rock and had an amazing view for lunch. Well worth the effort. The view of the villages, cows and fields of vines was well worth it!

I hiked the rock with my friend and it was really amazing being there, feeling the queen of the world, even if there was a lot of wind and I was very dizy, because of the height. It was truly amazing and it gives you a unique feeling. Don't miss it!

The climb is quick and worth the view. Part of the history of France, it's a place that really connects you with the nature.
