Prémian is located in the Jaur River valley, in the heart of the Somail and Caroux mountains.

It is at the crossroads of transhumance pathways.

Agricultural activities prevail in the landscape, on both sides of the Jaur river, between Tredos site and Lake of Vesoles.

In the spring, cherry trees adorn the valley with white flowers.

To discover the beautiful surrounding landscape, go on numerous hiking trails, in search of menhirs, Neolithic sites, and the high places of the Resistance ("Path of Remembrance" from Rouvials hamlet, first Maquis in the area named “John Grandel" maquis).




The path of 1000 steps (GR77) is a very famous hiking trail, known for its viewpoints and waterfalls.

Lake Vésoles is an artificial reservoir that supplies the hydroelectric plant.

This lake is fed by water from the creek "Buraut" which drains the vast peat lands between the Bane and Cabarétou passes. The thick forests are reflected in the deep blue waters of this mountain lake. The trail around the banks allows to discover the “Saut de Vésoles” (river chute), where the creek of Buraut falls into the void.

Village of culture and Heritage, Prémian transformed its old agricultural cooperative into a cultural and Arts center “Le fil des arts”
