A great view across Macon and all the way to Switzerland. We arrived around 4pm on picture perfect Monday in October. Fresh wind, blue skies and a view to die for, as the day started winding towards the next bottle of Chardonnay.

One of the most dramatic views in the entire wine world. We have been here many times and always find it exciting.

We've been taking visitors to the top of the rock for years and it is always much appreciated. The climb can be tough in hot weather, but the views from the top are spectacular. The museum is worth a visit, you can have an English commentary which is excellent..

Our bus driver stopped here for us to be able to walk alongside the beautiful vineyards and to take a walk up toward this stone landmark. Great place to look over the area and to take some photos.

Very nice walk to the top of this rock, where history speaks to you. And the views from above are stunning.

We visited this site as a part of a side tour from our South of France riverboat cruise. While picturesque and unique from a photographic/painting perspective, it was just average compared to the sometimes spectacular medieval cities and beautiful countryside vistas in this part of France.

Superb view from this landmark, and an interesting walk, too. The Burgundy landscape can be enjoyed in all its glory from up there.

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
