Oingt

During a recent day-trip around the Beaujolais region with friends, we stopped in the picturesque village of Oingt. The village was built in the 16th century out of local yellow stone (les pierres dorées), and has been maintained and restored since. Its narrow streets all lead to the chapel and keep on top of a hill, which offer spectacular views across the Beaujolais vineyards.
