Les Amis de la Pierre de Masgot is a 19th-century village that was transformed by stonemason Francois Michaud into a sculptural garden filled with granite animals, human figures, and decorative forms. Through his time, skill, and dedication, Michaud turned a common village into a museum of three-dimensional art. Here you will find statues carved into walls, roofs, and gates.

Do not miss the cabin of the Shepherd (2) evidence of charm based in this country walk. There is a heaven on Earth, I saw him in this small village, under the Sun, munching a few hazelnuts gleaned here and there.

  • Exceptional visit in a green setting. Granite cut everywhere - a work of a lifetime. It's really worth the visit.

  • A place to see if you find it! The signs in the countryside, with a Michelin map and GPS is a little complicated, otherwise the statuary visit is done in an hour. The welcome is friendly. There's a curiosity in the Woods to see nearby allowing you to remain cool and shade in the forest for an extra hour.
