Cute, amusing village for a fun diversion
Jun 2020
This was such a delightful little village. The wall murals were very amusing. There's a mechanical show that tells the stories of Clochemerle (all in French, of course), but very cool. You can take in the landscape while enjoying a glass of wine (or grape juice). Fun fact: The metal structure in the center of the town square was erected as a urinal many years ago to stop inebriated men from peeing in the streets. As you walk through the village you'll spot fun pieces of the Clochemerle story in cartoon images. It's a fun little diversion worth a stop when you're in the Beaujolais region.

Fun village based on a novel
Oct 2018 • Family
Well not really - they adapted the name of the village - Clochemerle, after a famous French novel which was set there in the early 20th century. The whole center of the village is dedicated to the amusing themes in the novel - and there's a nice museum and wine tasting center.

Charming wine village
Jun 2017 • Couples
This is a pleasant little town in the countryside of the Beaujolais region. It includes a couple of boutique hotels, the “Caves of Clochemerle”, (a musty wine bar and museum), and a mural telling the story of the Beaujolais. The mural adorns the small tourist center which is located right across from the Caves of Clochemerle. It’s a charming little village to visit.

Wonderful spot to visit, a bit of history with great local wines and ambiance
Jun 2017 • Couples
Vaux-en-Beaujolais is a small, attractive village made famous as the fictional village of Clochemerle in the book by Gabriel Chevallier. We stopped here while visiting wineries in Beaujolais, and it was the highlight of the trip. The village’s tourism office outer wall is painted with trompe-l’oeil-style frescoes from the book. We started at the Cave de Clochermerle, and sampled some of the local red wines – all were delicious. The lady at the tourism office was welcoming and clearly proud of her village and its history. There is a small museum on the other side of the courtyard, and in the middle a replica of the (fictitious) urinal that is central to the book’s plot. We are very glad we stopped and spent a couple of hours here; it is a pleasant and charming village.

The story of Clochemerle.
Sep 2016 • Couples
The Tourist Office is adorned with reproductions of the illustrations to Gabriel Chevallier's comic novel 'Clochemerle' and there is a very interesting museum with a film of his life. "Talking Flowertubs" were intriguing, Also a very good Cave to taste and buy Beaujolais Villages wines.

History and literature together
Mar 2015
The story and the place... for me the place is better as it has charm, it has great views, it has good eateries, it has a great little museum and bar the serves all the local wines. Plus the murals in the picture here just show or illustrate the humour...

A village that tries hard
Jun 2015 • Friends
Lovely little village with friendly local people. Superb Michelin starred restaurant in a charming unpretentious hotel. Taverna (bar) with welcoming owners where locals drink. Rather gloomy, damp wine tasting bar & museum. Wonderful walks of various lengths through the vine fields & woods. Overall I was puzzled as to the lack of visitors in a village that tries so hard to attract visitors & has so much to offer.

Unmissable
If you want to have your ideas on what a French wine village is like confirmed, go to Clochemerle. It could be from a film except that it's real. The locals are very welcoming especially in the Cave de Clochemerle, decorated with scenes from the Gabriel Chevalier book. You might recognise some of the characters standing at the bar.
The countryside is fabulous with walking trails marked out in the vines.

Better in pictures than reality
Nov 2014 • Couples
We had a hard time finding this place, but when we finally did, we were pretty disappointed. We saw only four other people the entire time we were in the town, and the museum and cave were both closed until 3 in the afternoon. We were there at lunchtime, hoping to have lunch in what seemed to be a cute town, but in reality there were no restaurants, no shops, nothing at all to do except snap a few pictures of this one building. Not worth the drive.
