This charming village lies on a basaltic plateau between Loire and Urcival.

The village contains beautiful granite houses on two large shady squares and a fountain. From the plateau of La Leiche at the foot of the Mézenc to the Loire gorges, you can do outdoor activities, visit a rich and varied inheritance (a priori, houses with “lauze” roofs or with broom) and eat authentic high-quality agricultural products. According to the inhabitants, Issarlès is a piece of heaven.
