Villefranche-sur-Saone

(95+ reviews from 6 attractions)
Museums Spas Fun & Games
About 1.6 km (1 mile) west of the river in the Rhône department, Villefranche-sur-Saône is a wine-trading center and a haven for walkers and people looking for a calm, relaxing town to vacation in. Taking its name from the province, Beaujolais red wine is produced here. It is unique to all other wines, being made from the Gamay grape with a thin skin and low tannins. It tends to be a very light-bodied, young red wine, with relatively high amounts of acidity. The sandy beach offers a lovely swimming area along the banks of the charming Saône, a quiet, rustic, and majestic river that makes a wonderful destination for relaxing and walks.
