Peyre
touristic guide

Peyre is situated 7 km downstream of Millau,
on the side of a colossal rock that dominates the right bank of the Tarn river.
Difficult not to fall for the charm of this village built against its tuf stone cliff full of caves.

Village with a Mediterranean air

Most of the houses are troglodyte as is the church of Romanesque origins and fortified in the 17th century. Its narrow flower lined stone streets remind you of Mediterranean villages and offer a welcome refuge from the heat in summer.

It really is an exceptional and unusual site that will unveil a superb view of the Millau viaduct, the perfect combination of old and new.
