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.
The medieval town has cobbled steets with peebles. I recommand you to have very good shoes, like trainers

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".
