Aigueperse is a charming village in the Haut Beaujolais, west of the Monsols district, north of the Rhone river on the border with Burgundy. The architecture of the houses is inspired by the Brionnais and Charolais styles.
The town's altitude jumps from 450 to 650 metres at the Croix du Truges.
The name of the village comes from "Aquae Sparsae", which means 'where water passes through', and dates back to 1100. Nestled in a small valley, surrounded by mountains covered with dark woods, Aigueperse is supplied by many streams which is undoubtedly where its name comes from.
