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.

I was here for a conference being held at the Prehistory Museum of Solutré at the foot of this rock on the 5 & 6 February 2015. The conference ended with a hike to the summit of La Roche. Well worth it despite the cold wind! The views from up here were spectacular even with grey skies. from here you... More

This is an outstanding (in both meanings of the word) feature in the landscape and visible from miles around. We climbed up one way past the super museum and back down the other side on a lovely day with superb views all around. If you want a break from wine tasting this is a very rewarding and interesting short walk... More

Solutre is a lovely landscape feature...a beautiful rock promintory jutting out of the surrounding vineyards and also a fascinating archeological-anthropological park. The museum and gardens are very well done, informative regarding paleolithic inhabitants of the area, and a peaceful spot in the countryside. It is worth several hours, at least. The surrounding area is worth exploring as there are numerous... More
