We will enter Pérouges via the Porte d’en Haut gate and will find ourselves immersed immediately in the Middle Ages.  The visit will lead you around the authentic medieval town. Thus, you will discover the history of this village and admire its magnificent 15th and 16th century houses.

On the charming Place des Tilleuls, the famous Hostellerie du Vieux Pérouges awaits you for a gourmet break within its 13th century walls. You will be able to savour the authentic Pérouges “galette” served with a glass of cider. The inimitable recipe for this “galette” prepared with sugar has become a recognised culinary speciality. In a typical setting, which has preserved all the charms of the olden days, this delicious snack ensures you a moment out of time.

You will then be able to continue your visit at your own leisure. Be charmed by the town’s authenticity. On the wall walk, take advantage of the exceptional view over the Ain Valley that stretches as far as the Alps.  In the picturesque medieval shops, discover the know-how of contemporary craftsmen.
