All about the trip
Let's take a helicopter ride over The Golden Stones!
The land of Golden Stones, les Pierres Dorées, is situated in the southern part of the Beaujolais in France.
Why is it called Golden Stones I hear you ask? It’s because of the warm, sandy-coloured limestone houses turn a beautiful golden colour when they catch the rays of the setting sun. This is what gives the region its famous name.
The best way to see this exquisite landscape is of course from the heavens. On our tour you will take off in a 4 seater helicopter, from the Villefranche Airfield.
Flying over the Country of Golden Stones, you will see more than just gold buildings, but also gorgeous vineyards, patchwork quilt countryside, rustic villages and medieval castles. The 18-minute flight will leave you speechless; it’s an experience that words simply cannot do justice.
Finally, you will fly back to Villefranche sur Saone aerodrome.
For visitors to the airfield, a restaurant with a terrace and a grassy area is just a few meters from the airfield. A perfect spot to unwind, enjoy some lunch and to shoot some memorable photos from.
