Oingt, a village classified among the most beautiful in France (the only one in the Rhône department), is a must-see place to visit during your stay in Beaujolais.

This medieval village in golden stones is beautifully preserved, and Oingt can be recognized from afar thanks to its tower offering a 360 ° view of the region to those who have the courage to climb its 73 steps. The inhabitants of Oingt are called the Iconians, in connection with the Roman name of the village "Iconium".

Many artists and craftspeople have their workshops in Oingt, a source of inspiration and fulfillment.

And the winegrowers will help you discover the fruits of their labor.

Le Bois-d'Oingt:

The village of Bois-d'Oingt is located in the southern part of Beaujolais also called the "Beaujolais des Pierres Dorées", on the route of "the flowery road of Beaujolais" which connects Tarare to Villefranche.

Since 1968, Le Bois-d'Oingt has been twinned with Mirwart, a small town in Wallonia in Belgium. Bois-d'Oingt has been classified as a "village of roses" since 1980. The inhabitants of Bois-d'Oingt are called Bisantins and Bisantines, this by deformation of the word Buxum which means Boxwood.

Saint-Laurent-d'Oingt:

Saint-Laurent is located in the region of golden stones, 35 km from Lyon, and 15 km from Villefranche-sur-Saône and Tarare.

The chapel, in the middle of the vineyards, dominates the village.

In the winegrowers' cellar you can taste white, rosé and red wine from the locality.
