An ancient city, classed among the ‘‘Most Beautiful Villages in France’’, Charroux was a fortress town and an important centre of trade in the Middle Ages. The village has plenty of sculpted stone façades to admire (which date from the 15th to 18th Century), its 12th Century church and its museum – which tells the story of the village.
Go for a stroll in the old streets where you can admire its wells, the clock tower, the eastern gate, the house of the Prince of Condé, the ‘‘Cour des Dames’’, the covered market, and many other sites.
It really is a must-visit in the region.
Known for its mustard and its candles, this is a place to go to discover artists and food artisans : the mustard makers, fruit juice sellers, jam makers, potters, and many more.
The village of Charroux is located an approx. 30 minute car-ride from the campsite.
