    the magnificent church

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If in this town there is one "must see" item it is without a doubt its 12th century Romanic church. It is magnificent in its somplicity and austerity. Standing alone beside the village it is a marvelous sight, both from the village and from the road across the depression that lies beneath the village.

    The closest shop available to visitors is the campground's own one. Here most of the basic necessities can be purchased as well as souvenirs, postcards etc..In the village itself the traveller will find Hotel du Centre. This is a bar/ hotel/restaurant where one can also purchase postcards and souvenirs and have photographs sent out for developement. Near the center of town, clearly marked is a "medival bakery". They have excellent sorts of bread. The nearest town with a supermarket is Le Mayet de Montagne. (+- 30minutes by car)

    What to buy: A large part of the appeal of this town is due to the many artists who have found a home here and established their workshops. Among them a sculptor, aquarellist, basket weaver, glass engraver, etc.. Therefor the culturally interested visitor may find some very unusual items for sale.

Châtel-Montagne Off The Beaten Path

    Cascade de la Pisserotte

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This walk leads the visitor along a quiet forest trail by the banks of the stream "La Pisserotte" towards the spot where it tumbles down at the "Cascades de la Pisserotte". It plunges down into a pool with the remarkable name "Trou du Diable" (Hole of the Devil). Near the pond a placque tells the story related to it. Due to its location under the foliage of the forest it is particularly pleasant to make this walk on a hot summer days. The presence of some rocky elevations along the path will enhance the enjoyment for those who like clambering and climbing a bit. Furthermore there are some spots that might yield fine pictures , such as ponds with straight walls around them and rapids etc. At one end of the trail a beautiful old watermill (Moulin du Mas) makes for a great scene as well.
