City Hall
“With beautiful views over the Bandiat valley, a 20 minute drive from Maison Vignoble is the town of Nontron, famous across France for its knives, and home to one of the oldest knife-making institutions in France. A visit to the workshop where you can see knives being made is highly recommended, and there are plenty of shops selling them and cutlery sets to take home. A mix of Renaissance and columbage buildings, take a stroll through the town and dine in the square, before exploring the beautiful Jardins des Arts - the beautiful gardens leading down to the river are home to a variety of sculptures and worth a look. If time allows, Saturday morning is a good time to visit Nontron as this is when the weekly market takes place.”
