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".

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.

What’s Included

Other: 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

Other: 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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Emilie was a lovey tour guide. She was completely open to customizing our tour and it was perfect. I must have emailed with her 10 times and she was always prompt in replying and very helpful. We had all ages from 10-72 family and friends, different interests and fitness levels and she made it great for all. She did our tour in English and no problems understanding her. Her vocabulary and knowledge of the topics was extensive. We would highly recommend Emilie to anyone.
