Village of Villebois

Pet Friendly

A beautiful bug village, in stone, of course. Villebois and its quarries have shone around the world for the quality of its freestone. Former seigniory with three fortified houses, its residences bear witness to a past strongly linked to the Rhône.

From the Place du Monolith, a heritage route invites you in the footsteps of the quarrymen and the history of the village. Beautiful explanatory terminals will help you unlock the secrets of its key places: monolith, church, town hall, washhouse, hamlet and fortified house of Bouis, Octave plateau and millstone quarries.

The Villebois quarries are classified as a Sensitive Natural Area. A pleasant walk crosses the old workings of La Meule, an abandoned forge, natural areas for resting or observing wild flora (soap beds, lichens, etc.) and wildlife. The Octave plateau still bears the traces of the tanks transporting the stone from Villebois to the Rhône.
The public toilets are located on the alley of lime trees, towards the roundabout at the entrance to the village. Public toilets with automatic cleaning
