A fulfilling walk!

A very fulfilling walk to the top. The terrain is not difficult, but we were there on a very hot day and EVERYONE was sweating (not just us!!). If you're travelling on a hot day... read more

A very fulfilling walk to the top. The terrain is not difficult, but we were there on a very hot day and EVERYONE was sweating (not just us!!). If you're travelling on a hot day do be sure to take plenty of water as there isn't a shop on the site. You can also visit a prehistoric museum here, but... More

Great view from the top of this landmark. You will walk to the top in 30-45 min. No special shoes needed, sneakers are fine, no flip flops. There's also a panoramic view just 200 further where you can have a picknick. Bring your own, there's no shop in the erea.

On a clear day, you can see the sno-capped Alpine summits in the distance. Very easy paths lead up to a rocky outpost (watch your children !) from which you have a clear 360° view - weather permitting. Only drawback : the place can be crowded.

Easy walk up to the top of this rock, with great views over the surrounding wine country. Good paths and signage. But we found it difficult to access so you'll need a good map. No refreshments although work was being done at the visitors' centre so that might improve. Only restaurant in surrounding area is in village of Solutre.

If you're interested in Burgundy (wine, that is), it's a beautiful site to take in. Particularly interesting to see the differences in farming techniques (wherein lies the quality).

Worth the drive, there are actually several of these majestic "Roches" in the area. Also pretty romantic. We didn't have time to climb it, but a lot of people were and it looked like it would be fun.

This interesting natural rock formation is well presented with a well laid out car park and informative signage. The route to the top is well laid in natural materials and well marked. The view from the top over the Rhône valley is stupendous. The climb to the top is quite long (0.75 mile one way) and a little steep in... More

Our family with children aged 8 & 10 loved the museum and each having our own audio guide. Amazing artefacts! And the climb up the top is really nice with gorgeous wineries to see.

While on a business trip into Lyon and Mâcon, took a quick trip to La Roche de Solutre. Unfortunately for me it was a cloudy, overcast day, but nonetheless the views from the top were great. You get a nice 360 degree view of the region. There are easy trails to get to the summit, although some loose rocks make... More
