Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Rhône

Charming mid-mountain village in the heart of green Beaujolais, Claveisolles is located in the Rhône department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.

Hikers' paradise, the village offers many routes, family and sports.

Walkers, at the turn of the trails can admire the tallest and most beautiful Douglas of Europe planted in 1872 by the Count of Sablon, then mayor of the town. The producers of cow cheeses, goat cheese and honey, offer their local specialties.

In the Middle Ages, the subsoil is full of mineral deposits (ocher, quartz) and metalliferous (copper, iron, zinc) that were exploited. Abandoned mines are now home to bats that winter every year in underground tunnels, which are part of the European Natura 2000 network.
