    Its inhabitants are called Cliousclatiens. Its name comes from "Cliou" which means "burnt" because of a fire that would have destroyed the fifteenth century. This village was founded in 947 and belongs to the family of Adhemar. From the eighteenth century, the village will turn to the handicraft and pottery gradually. In the nineteenth century, each family has a tower where you work after agricultural activities. The production is then sold to a boss who fired oven and markets. Then, in the early twentieth century, a potter creates his own pottery. Other potters gather and then are hired at the factory.

    la treille muscate: good food

    You enter through an archway into an interior garden and seating area. They have the small restaurant on one side, on another side, the hotel.

    Favorite Dish: my menu was Lentil & cumin spread with bread crisps, aperitif of champagne and melon liquier, and scallop ceviche and eggplant fried with tomato sauce. excellent.

    see the pottery

    There are only a few potters in this town but one of them, called Poterie de Cloiusclat, is very well known and respected. I’ve seen pictures and read about them so it was very exciting to finally get there.
