  • This very special site worth a visit. We stayed 2 days on-site. The village is worth a visit with its Abbey for those who so wish, for those who are not there are exhibitions. The caves are interesting as well as the waterfall even with little water. We can go by a footpath through woods and a check we discover the departure of cascading Brook, which is not seen when it comes to the car. The place is not reported. You can also have a beautiful view of the village without a ride at the belvedere by a trail easy enough to borrow. The municipal camping is well located.

  • Very beautiful village with its Abbey and its cave but also its waterfall. A few free car parks and rest along the river areas will delight the young and old. Possibly to park the camping cars.
