The Program

Escape to the two historic cities of Pérouges and Annecy. This tour takes you to the heart of the French Alpes and allows you see the different aspects of le Lyonnaise region: Pérouges, the medieval village of Bresse, that will make you go back in time and Annecy that will charm you with its scenery of lakes and mountains.
An unusual itinerary to discover the treasures of the lyonnaise region. Amazing sceneries, history and local specialities will make this day a unique experience 100% made in France!

Accompanied by you driver-guide you will take the road to Dombes, to the north-east of Lyons. Along this landscape itinerary you will enjoy the magnificent views over the plain of the Dombes Lakes and admire the authentic farmhouses of Bresse and their horse and poultry farms.

The visit will lead you around the authentic medieval town. 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 take the road again to the French Alpes, to arrive in Annecy for lunch. In the centre of this charming city you will have a large choice: traditional restaurants, specialities with cheese of the Alpes, Italian specialities that crossed the border…don’t hesitate to ask advice to you guide!

The afternoon will be devoted to the discovery of the authentic little city and its charms: located in between two mountains, the reflection in the lake gives a unique atmosphere to the city. Walking around the city you will be able to find some remains of the rich history of Annecy, where the earls of Savoy and Swizterland used to live.

If wish you can also complete your tour of the city with two options: a cruise on the lake, a good opportunity to see the city differently or a tour of a cheese factory to learn more about the local speciality and enjoy a tasting.
