Composed of several hamlets at a distance from the centre of the village, Saint-Vallerin is one of the four villages to have the Montagny appellation. The vines dominate the slopes, but there are also limestone grasslands that extend to the neighbouring communes of Fley and Montagny. To have an overall view and to see a gorgeous panorama of the territory, you should climb up to the statue of the "Blue Virgin" erected on the cliff dominating Saint-Vallerin in the direction of the Chalonnaise plain (departure point of walking routes : a 10.5 km Balade Verte called "Le Tour du Mont-Bouzu" (The Tour of Mont-Bouzu) and an 8.2 km circuit "Entre vignes et bocages" (Between vineyards and hedgerows). Saint-Vallerin is home to many washhouses that collect water from the springs on the slopes below "La Roche" but the one in the village is particularly notable with its imposing carved stones. The village has a beautiful, partly Romanesque, church (Eglise Saint-Vallerin) topped by a stone bell tower and rich in classified baptismal fonts.
