The site is marked by the rise of a former president of the Republic every year at Easter. Discovery of the vineyards of Pouilly-Fuissé beautiful view.

  • beautiful purpose of walk. Reserved for those who can climb! well signposted... but it's still hard enough effort.

  • The view is worth the effort which is not negligible. Although relatively short (approximately 1300 m) the course is more a mini hike than a simple walk. Appropriate shoes are almost essential. Some (including me) have to travel the last meters 4-legged (polished, slippery rocks).

  • Stunning views from the top, after a short climb. You can probably do the whole walk in 1hr, but would allow 2 for a break at the top. We did it in flip flops and it was fine, but you may prefer more grip on the rocks at the top
  • A nice walk with a lovely view a little slippy when wet,and a lot of loose stones so remember to wear suitable shoes !
  • Beautiful Archeology Museum with botanical exhibit and a not too challenging ascent to thd peak of the limestone rock of Solutre
  • Stuning view over maconnais and pouilly wines
  • Brilliant walk, with excellent views over the vineyards. Free exhibition, small cafe etc at the bottom.
