  • A very beautiful village typical of the causse with a historic side. Nice full of corners to visit. Little, or even no animation even in August. A very nice restaurant on the terrace between the parking lot and the main entrance to the site. Very affordable prices.

  • Spellbinding little place, every turn a new photo opportunity. Loved my visit here
  • Amazing templar fortress.
  • Lovely old buildings
  • A small picturesque fortified village. Go preferably in season to enjoy shopping, but the village in him even worth when you love the old stones. Parking day. For the camper the amount remains the same regardless of time past.
