The Pilat massif is located in the Loire department in the south-east of the town of Saint-Étienne and in the south-west of the towns of Vienne and Givors. It dominates the Rhone and the Gier valleys.
Our massif is bordering with 4 departments: the Rhône, the Isère, the Ardèche and the Haute-Loire but also only a few steps away from the drome
“Diversity” is the best word to describe our region. We will try, below, to help you discover some of its most important sites.
Activities in Pilat are oriented around nature, sports and culture:
Situated between Saint-Etienne and the Rhône Valley, Pilat is made up of small regions with very distinct characters.
They are opposed by their climates, their landscapes, their types of habitats or their methods of land development.
The whole constitutes a mid-mountain massif, a veritable water tower for the towns of the nearby valleys.
The Pilat Regional Natural Park extends over 700 km². The slopes of the Rhône, land of fruit trees and vines, follow the highlands of forests and livestock. Forests, beech woods, slopes of broom and plateaus of meadows are all characteristic landscapes of Pilat.
We invite you to contact the Maison du Parc du Pilat to collect as much touristic information as possible:
