La Couvertoirade, Millau

4.4
Few medieval villages in France are as well preserved as La Couvertoirade. Located on the Larzac Plateau, this beautifully restored village reflects the military power of the Knights Templar, who built the fortress in the 12th and 13th centuries. Have your camera ready when you arrive in this historic town, classified as one of the most beautiful villages of France. Walk the ramparts, and don’t miss the 20-minute movie on the history of the village. Take a guided tour that includes the House of the Scipione or rent an audio guide, available in English.

    The site is interesting and different. A town within the walls with a medieval layout. The restoration of the roofs is not well achieved and the missing much in terms of attention to detail and cleaning. You don't have to be a theme park but also a neglected and dirty place. Restaurants, except one very expensive, nor give much confidence. A sentence that is not more carefully, because it has possibilities.

    Nice drive, atmospheric. Windy and cold and ridiculously expensive. Do not buy a sheepskin there. Come to Scotland.  more »

    Beautiful medieval village. Many artisans are some homes which slightly distorts the site but at the same time gives it a bit of soul. Very tourististique. Access to the village for free, with parking mandatory €3 day. Not to be missed!
