Just a beautiful place with plenty of opportunity for mooching and wandering, or just sitting down and admiring the view. Best to get here in the morning, I think, as things close up (some just for a siesta, some for the rest of the day)...More

A perfectly balanced village for a full day visit. But start early to get possibility to take photos without other interrupting. Use good shoes. Don’t use children trolley, the wheel will get stuck in the brick stone streets.

Unmissable if you are in the area but I would recommend you try to see it out of season as I suspect it can become very busy in high season.

It's a pretty town on the Pilgrim route. Recommend visiting if your nearby but I wouldn't make a special trip, there are plenty of other pretty towns to see (e.g. Saint-Côme-d'Olt). It was pouring with rain so this may have coloured my visit. At least...More

Spent a wonderful morning in this most picturesque town. There are quite a few artisan stores with beautiful products to buy. All stores were very welcoming. Such a lovely place to visit. Get there early to secure a parking spot.

What a beautiful village. We spent a good few hours wondering the village. Photo opportunities everywhere. The shops were cute with unique items, a lot handmade but beautiful. The French shop owners friendly and helpful. Coming from Australia it was truly special for us.
