Kiva paikka, varsinkin uimaranta toisella puolella tietä.

Kävin kahviossa, se ok. Kaunis sisustus.

Jos kartanot ja niiden historia kiinnostaa, tässä sinulle sopiva kohde. Opastettu kierros kartanossa oli perusteellinen ja asiantunteva. (7,5€/henki, v.2018) Kahvila on valoisa ja raparperipiirakka maukas. WC siisti. Käynnin jälkeen voi suositella Hovimäki - sarjan katsomista, joka kuvattu pääosin täällä.

Kultur- och byggnadshistoriskt intressant herrgård med trevligt kafe. Trädgården har förfallit, och inredningen har knappast alls bevarats. Priset för en guidad tur (7,50 €) är rätt högt, och Museikortet gäller inte här.

niille jotka pitävät historiasta on kartano ympäristöineen loistava paikka. Tiesittekö muuten, että Hovimäki sarja kuvattiin ks. paikassa? Luonnosta ja valokuvaamisesta tykkäävät löytävät mukavia luontoon liittyviä kohteita samoin ne jotka tykkäävät kuvat rakennuksia löytyy mielenkiintoisia yksityiskohtia.

Historic Village of Olargues

Olargues is a good example of a French medieval town and rated as one of the most beautiful villages in France. It was occupied by the Romans, the Vandals and the Visigoths. At the end of the 11th century the Jaur valley came under the authority of the Château of the Viscount of Minerve. The following centuries saw a succession of wars and epidemics, and it was not until the 18th century that Olargues became re-established. This was due to the prosperity of local agriculture and artisanal industry.

The Pont du Diable, 'Devil's Bridge', is said to date back to 1202 and is reputed to be the scene of transactions between the people of Olargues and the devil. The old village is clustered around the belltower, which was formerly the main tower of the castle (Romanesque construction). The old shops have marble frontages and overhanging upper storeys. A museum of popular traditions and art is to be found in the stairs of the Commanderie.
