A small traditional town in the Aveyron region of South France, Rieupeyroux is a place where you can experience a very French way of life. Walking around its medieval centre you’ll happen upon timber-framed houses, narrow winding streets and wonderful arcades. Shops are plentiful in the town itself – clothes stores, hairdressers, food shops and of course heavenly little cafes and restaurants serving delicious food. There’s a lovely church – the Church Saint-Martial, which is a remarkable monument. Rebuilt in the 14th century, it’s well worth a visit. Once out in the countryside, walking, cycling or horse-riding are all perfect ways to traverse the beautiful landscapes, taking in the local farms, and for a nice trip out, visit the nearby village of Pradinas with its museum and animal park – a great one for the family.
