Château Neuf de VertrieuLa Maison forte de Vertrieu


The itinerary starts with an unclassified slope with steps to reach the top. Mountain-bikers can avoid this section by following the road as far as Le Serverin. The village of Vertrieu on the banks of the Rhône boasts the particularity of having two châteaux (13th and 17th century).
Features include many signs of the village's historical links with the River Rhône (ferryboat, bargemen's houses, etc.), a beautiful panoramic view of the Rhône and the Bugey region from Serverin (viewpoint indicator) and, right by the path, the old icehouse that once served the château.
Worth visiting: a climbing boulder and the Château Neuf gardens which open to the public from May until the end of July.
