Rendez-vous in Charroux, one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France

Located 30 kilometres west from Vichy, the medieval village of Charroux is listed as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France. This fortified village was an important trade crossroad in the middle-ages and some of the streets still hold very symbolic names such as the hen market, rope, tanner or lime-kiln streets... Nowadays, Charroux still displays carved stone facades from the 15th and 18th centuries, a timber framed house with corbelled construction from the 14th century and an impressive number of wells.
