Les Ollières-sur-Eyrieux is a commune in the Ardèche department in southern France.

The nearest towns are Privas and Saint-Sauveur-de-Montagut.

History[edit]

The first records of a settlement can be dated back to the 12th century. Situated on the banks of the Eyrieux river (a tributary to the Rhône river), Les Ollières (as it is often shortened to by the local people) became a central location for the treatment and processing of silk in the early 18th century. The silk (and later different textiles) industry was to feature heavily in the surrounding area.

21st century[edit]

The village has now become a tourist location, attracting many Dutch, German, Swiss and English tourists to its many camp sites during the summer months. Some tourists have started to renovate old cottages and set up permanent or holiday homes in the area.
