It reminds Gordes, in small scale! It is basically a circular street that surrounds the village, with a central area. Beautiful! Enchanting houses and stores, surrounded by gorgeous flowers and nice restaurants.

We took the train from Lyon Part Dieu Station to Meximieux-Perouge as there is not direct train.Its a 30 minute journey. Not forgetting to validate your tickets before going on to the platform. Once at the Meximeiux-Perouge station there is a distinct lack of direction signs.
Go up the slight hill to the clock tower and turn left, walk 500m to the roundabout you will see a road sign for Cite Medievale going right, follow the sign up hill for about 1km. You will see a sign welcoming you to Cite Medievale Perouges, turn right and walk up the steep hill for 150m. A stone arched gateway is in front of you.
Wonderful cobbled streets, ancient buildings, secret places to explore. Lots of places to take photos or relax in the square with a glass of something. There is a tourist information office within the town to get a map and explanations of the buildings

We were there during the All-Saints holiday so many of the locals were out-of town, and it was not particularly over-run with tourists. We spent the day just strolling around enjoying the beautiful old buildings, the galettes and a local grape sparkling beverage, the shops, the view. Many opportunities for taking photos here. The streets are completely cobblestone-paved so this may be a problem for some.
