Beautiful view

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.

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

Very difficult path to the top, broken up and stony. We decided not to attempt it as my husband's knees are troublesome. Definitely take walking sticks, even if you're young and fit!

This was a great surprise! We walked to the top on a very hot day. The views from the top absolutely amazing. So many people sat at the summit admiring the vista in the sunshine. Well worth the trek. We planned to go to the teashop also the museum at the bottom, but alas there was a huge down poor... More

Yes it's a rocky outcrop! It stands out proudly surrounded by vineyards in this quite stunning part of France. We visited as part of a coach group and it was the ideal stop to get a first impression of the area. Next time we will park up and take a walk as it looked so pleasant.
