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. Work out when and for how long to visit La Couvertoirade and other Millau attractions using our handy Millau trip planner .

  • If you are looking for stone and beautiful surroundings with warm colors. This is the place. The shutters are pink, green and duck blue. Romantic and just beautiful . A must  more »
  • Visit in the middle of January... Under a beautiful Sun... Obviously, low season everything is closed, but we will return again in high season. The fortified village offers a beautiful view on the Larzac plateau, you can even access, from the heart of the city in a wonderful mill. In full season, animations of ancient trades and stalls of handicrafts must make the place very nice. Easy access, large parking (paying €3 in high season)

  • Spellbinding little place, every turn a new photo opportunity. Loved my visit here
  • Amazing templar fortress.
