at Les Terrasses
"Artisan Chef" is how Jean-Michel, a young starred chef, likes to introduce himself. With Pascal and Victor, pillars of the restaurant and who have the memory of the know-how passed on by Michel Carrette senior, they like to handle ideas and products; to assemble them and look for the clash of flavours; to finally combine them and create a work of art that is timeless, flavourful and unexpected. With these important words: the pleasure of sharing.

La Roche de Solutré
A not-to-be-missed viewpoint. On the Solutré Pouilly Vergisson Grand Site de France, the Roche de Solutré rises to 493 metres. A spectacular limestone escarpment in the middle of the Mâconnais vineyards. The rocks of Solutré-Pouilly, Vergisson and Mont Pouilly are among France's elite Grands Sites. Located in the far south of the Bourgogne Franche-Comté region, the Solutré Pouilly Vergisson Grand Site de France is a protected natural area and a renowned tourist attraction. It is also a favourite walking area for the people of Mâconnais. The Solutré Pouilly Vergisson Grand Site de France covers six communes:
Solutré-Pouilly, Vergisson, Davayé, Prissé, Fuissé and Charnay-lès-Mâcon.
The area's rich biological diversity, characterised by the presence of rare species and remarkable plant associations, is recognised at European level: the Roches de Solutré and Vergisson and Mont Pouilly are under Natura 2000 protection. Small horses - almost perfect look-alikes of their prehistoric ancestors - play an active role in preserving the biodiversity of the limestone grasslands. These hardy Konik Polski horses graze the meadows, helping to prevent them from becoming overgrown.
Starting from the Roche car park, the ascent of the Roche de Solutré is on foot. With no major difficulties and culminating at an altitude of 493 m, the 4 km circuit has an ascent of 100 m. A series of reading tables invite you to explore the many facets of the site.
A prehistory museum, an archaeological and botanical garden and the Maison du Grand Site complete the tour.
