Tips from locals
Perched fortress village in the pre-Alps with incredible views. There is a nearby hike if you drive past the village for a couple minutes that we enjoy. It is a steep incline but can be done in 45 min to an hour.
Driving towards Gourdon from the south it almost seems impossible that a village could be squeezed so high up on such a small perch, and the nickname “Nid d’Aigle” (Eagle’s Nest) couldn’t be more apt. The cute stone village is not much more than a couple of streets, but the views 700 metres above…
Great chateau and village and amazing Engle's Nest Restaurant with such a view....
