  • Feel the vibe ! Best place for the end of the day.
  • Super mimi
  • Très beau lieu pour des promenades familiales, villégiatures et découvertes animalières. Représentations théâtrales et artistiques en périodes estivales de mai à septembre.
  • Magnifique endroit, village avec beaucoup de charme, ruelles et chemins parcourent le village pour descendre jusqu'à la rivière l'allier. Maisons en pierre à flanc de coteau, construites en pierre, avec de jolies terrasses suspendues au dessus de l'allier... On chemine par les anciennes entrées du château, tourelles et sans doute ancien Pont levais. Superbe et bien préservé
  • Belle ballade au dessus du château en montant sur la colline mais attention aux chasseurs qui tirent le sanglier sans aucune prévention
