In the center of the village, at the meeting of four roads, the church dominates with its superb. Romanesque in style, the apse has been listed as a Historic Monument since 1930. Take a look at the beautiful capitals adorned on the outside chevet.

Formerly Lhuis hosted the Haut Rhône tramway several times a day linking Brégnier-Cordon to Sault-Brénaz. Even today, the small station built in 1910 remains.

Throughout the village, the small heritage parades: old communal ovens (the town still has 10), washhouses, fountains... A decor that gives Lhuis its authentic atmosphere.

The mill stream sings its sweet melody as it crosses the town. Below the village it gives a magical aspect to the undergrowth between calm and serenity.

The hamlet of Millieu is worth a look for its belvedere overlooking the "Lac de Millieu". This beautiful marshy pond, surrounded by reeds, is a sensitive natural area.
