    Surprising visit to an authentic medieval village. It's not a part of the town, or the historical centre it, no. Tooodo the village is medieval. A real postcard from the past. But summary: good things: 1st.-is near Lyon. About 20 minutes by car (€1,50 of toll to go and many others to return). 2º.-Park luxury. Large car park at the entrance of the village. Mandatory. There is no traffic in the urban area (except the very few residents). 2 €/ day. 3º.-quiet. There are enough tourists, but it is a quiet and cautious tourism. 4º.-small. It kicks in an afternoon. 5.- and as I've said, precious. A postcard to each corner. Less good things: 1st.-of as well preserved... Finally seem slightly unreal. In fact I think that reside lives a few people there. All there is are closed apparently empty homes and businesses for tourism. The typical hairdresser, Tobacconist, pharmacy, necessary shopping to daily life in any town. What makes it more theme park than in town. 2.-gastronomic offer scarce and expensive. Better to be eaten.
