Photo du Jour - le Village


A view across the bare winter vineyards to our village.
The 12th century Château (in the middle) is now divided up into privately owned apartments and low income apartments owned by the village. The church (tower on the left) dates from the 15th and 16th centuries.

There is a grotto in the foothills behind the village with engravings of bears, mammoths, rhinoceros and felines dating from 37,000-30,000 BC and cave paintings and a human footprint dating from 7,000-6,500 BC. Pin It
