It’s among the most beautiful villages of France as it is truly very well preserved with the old houses and narrow streets. It’s a very nice and romantic place where you must absolutely stop if you’re in this area.

This village was built at the 14th century and had a strategic place on the commercial road between the north of France and the capital city of Lyon. The textile activity was very important there during many centuries and it’s only in the 19th century that the commercial activity began to decline. Nowadays it’s almost only a tourist destination where the charm of the old streets and houses is the first economic potential of the place. And don’t forget to taste the typical Galette de Pérouges, a little cake speciality… :) To go there, follow the A7 Highway from Lyon in direction north and go out at the exit Pérouges…very easy!
