Office de Tourisme des Vallées du Clain - BIT de Château-Larcher
The most surprising feature you come across, when entering this charming village, is its ancient fortified castle and truncated dungeon which looms above the main street. The church ( 12th C ), once the château's chapel, is an integral part of the fortification and offers a panoramic view of the wooded Clouère valley.In the midst of the village's cemetery, a lantern for the dead rises which dates back to the middle of XII th century. Nearby : the ruins of the Arlait dolmen, testify the presence of a vast necropolis (more than 100 tombs) edified in these territories around 3500 B.C. On site accommodation : camping car areas, gîtes.
