  • We took the petit train and had a tour of the town - the villas are so grand and some are huge. Shame the town planners got involved in the 70s as some are now cheek to jowl against modern carbuncles.  more »
  • Walk walk in this place to admire the small mansions in this winter town all more beautiful than the other. Here, even that of the large Dumas is huge.. .it is true for housing all of the Musketeers.

  • After going to the tourist office to buy a little guide about the city of winter, we are left ns walk there. Walk very nice ds these quiet streets with beautiful homes. That our heritage is rich, I really recommend this ride because the architecture of the houses is really interesting.

  • Decadent eclecticism's triumph. Architecture of incomparable elegance. It seems to return to the principles of the twentieth century.
