Description Amenities In the area Map Reviews
Located in the center of the small village of Denicé a few miles from Villefranche-sur-Saône, this spacious multi-level home offers the best of both worlds: picturesque rural countryside and easy access to cosmopolitan Lyon.  Built from the traditional local golden-hued stone, the house is surrounded by a small garden with wonderful views to an adjacent vineyard.  

Dating from the early 1800’s, “Maison des Pierres Dorées” has been completely renovated over the last few years to retain its charming old-world ambiance.  The original terracotta tile floors, stonewalls, and high open-beamed ceilings are enhanced by the owner's many high quality upgrades, tasteful furnishings, and interesting artifacts. 

From the large entry, the open-plan ground floor is arranged on two levels. The first has a billiard room with table. A few steps up, a spacious sitting room includes two comfy sofas, two over-sized leather armchairs, and a stone fireplace. The adjacent dining room has a large wood table seating eight; French doors lead to the garden.  The completely renovated country kitchen is open and modern with generous counter space, soft yellow and green tile walls, cook top/oven, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, and all the cookware and small appliances that make for an enjoyable and convenient holiday stay. 

In between the first and second floors, there is a mezzanine level with a library and a separate media room with a second fireplace, satellite TV, VCR, and DVD player. A separate laundry room is also found on this level.

The second floor has a combination of rooms that sleep a total of seven. Two double bedrooms have en-suite private showers and toilets. The third room has two single beds and is connected to a smaller room with a single bed and a separate bathroom with shower and toilet. 

Three more double bedrooms are found on the third floor: one with en-suite full bath, one with two single beds and a sink, and a third bedroom with just a double bed. Separate bathroom on this floor.

The house is located in the small village of Denicé, with the village church on one side and acres of vineyard on the other. The village has a charming café/restaurant. Many of the region's occupants are involved either in the growing of grapes or making and selling of the area's famous nine Beaujolais “grands crus”, each named after a local village.
Between wine tastings, visitors will enjoy the gentle landscape of low rolling hills, country roads, and rural lanes, perfect for hiking and biking. The hills are dotted with wineries and impressive châteaux built by 17th century silk merchants from Lyon. The greater Beaujolais region has many charming hamlets that from a distance have hardly changed in appearance over the centuries. Through the wrought-iron gateway of the nearby ancient village of Salles-Arbuissonais, one can stroll the quiet village square surrounded by trees and handsome old townhouses. A tall stone bell tower is part of a centuries-old priory, bordered with a beautifully carved stone arcade. Driving through the local countryside from one village to the next, there are fabulous 360-degree vistas of chateaux, vineyards, tiny hamlets, and farm buildings of golden stone. Picturesque and dating from the 12th century, Villefranche-sur-Saône is four miles from Denicé. Lyon is an easy 24 mile drive on the A6 freeway.
