Montréal la Cluse is a commune of 3500 inhabitants, in the heart of the Haut-Bugey. 15 mn from Oyonnax, it is ideally located, near the lake of Nantua. The commune is well served in terms of transport, as the Croix-Chalon station, the Nurieux TGV station and the entrance to the motorway are all within easy reach.
Concerned about its economic offer and its land capacities, the municipality has worked to offer a pleasant and accessible living environment to its inhabitants. The municipality is home to some of the most renowned companies in its area and is therefore one of the main providers of employment in the region.
The municipality has a diversified housing stock, and the occupancy rate of the almost saturated social housing stock is a testament to the attractiveness of Montréal la Cluse.
With 3 school groups (2 nursery schools and 1 primary school), Montréal la Cluse stands out for its sports facilities, which are very numerous and well attended. The local sports associations, dynamic and involved, are delighted to practice in such conditions.
Rich in history, the commune owns the Douglas Castle and its surrounding park. For a few years now, the park has been open to the population and allows everyone to go for walks in a calm and green environment.
Totally inscribed in the intermunicipal dynamics of Haut Bugey, Montréal la Cluse offers a balanced living environment between the proximity of urban amenities (shops, services …) and a preserved nature.
With an attractive village centre, a well-structured commercial and artisanal activity and a dense and diversified associative, cultural and sporting life, the village of Ceyzériat still attracts a lot of interest.
Attractive by the quality of life it inspires, the commune of Ceyzériat effectively seduces by its character of a small town in the countryside. A communal forest of more than 250 hectares offers walkers, mushroom gatherers and other hunters a popular place to relax. The heights of Mont-July offer superb views over the Bresse plain, and walkers enjoy discovering, just a stone’s throw from the heart of the village, the sensitive natural area of the Vallon des Faulx, made famous by Alexandre Dumas.
The commune of Ceyzériat also has an important economic life, symbolized by the Bouvard company, an internationally renowned biscuit factory, or the cluster of departmental breeding organisations. Ceyzériat therefore strives to offer a double quality of life and welcome, also illustrated by the quality of its blossoming during the period summer
