Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. I am sure that young people have enough imaginary to discover Pérouges. I can speak about knights and princesses, ghost and monsters hidden in the mansions!!! (even if it is not true!) However, the best minimal age would be around 6.

Friendly: No.
The medieval town has cobbled steets with peebles. I recommand you to have very good shoes, like trainers

Maximum travelers: 7

The true story of a charming French village - Private tour


Built on a hill and situated 30 kms from Lyon, Pérouges is a perfect example of a medieval town and is still an inhabited village. These charming streets were the place where craftmen and farmers enjoyed their communal freedom. The village has no rich relics but can boast of an unequalled unity with its houses. Conserved by a local association, it has attracted film producers who have used exterior shots in numerous French films, such as "The Three Musketeers".

Itinerary

Meeting point at your accomodation or directly in Pérouges. It is a walking tour in the small town including a stop at an old restaurant to taste local specialities. I can accompagny you in your car/bus from your place and back to same place at the end.

I have no car, you need to have your own way of transport. I can help you to find a solution.

What’s Included

Guided tour in Pérouges, and stop in a charming restaurant to drink one glass of local sweet rosé sparkling wine and a piece of "galette" per person.

What’s Extra

I have no car. If we meet at your hotel, you need to have a way of transport. It is possible to go to Pérouges by train or by bus, but it is not convenient, because there are not very often.

Restrictions

I am not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
