“Gallo-Roman mosaics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

Remains of a Roman villa uncovered in the grounds of the church. There are some amazing mosaics. The site has a very good museum with attentive staff who will always take time to show you the highlights. A wonderful small part of the history of our area. It is only walking distance from where I live!

“Roman remains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

The mosaics and roman remains on this site are just brilliant and are well worth a visit. It is in a quiet area and we were the only visitors on the day we visited in July 2011
