Village of Vaux en Bugey

Pet Friendly

A former fortified medieval town, Vaux en Bugey is a pretty bug village. Stone residences, peacefully flowing Buizin, church surrounded by the old walkway and remains of mills bear witness to a past rich in activities and stories

The town was Dauphinois, Savoyard then French in 1601.
The village has partly kept the memory of its oval shape, a legacy of its medieval past.
The walk, from its alleys to the heights, or on the hamlets, is very pleasant in all seasons. The many views of the town, the vineyards or the meadows make it a peaceful and rejuvenating place.

From its past the village also retains a beautiful chapel: Notre Dame de Nièvre, which was once a very popular place of pilgrimage.
The rural and peasant population practiced polyculture: animal husbandry, cereal and market gardening, viticulture and forestry.
The basement was also exploited: first iron ore from 1824 to 1865, then gas from 1906 to 1961. Vaux en Bugey was also the first natural gas deposit exploited in France.
