Take the time to admire the magnificent architectural decoration and the construction of the Gallo-Roman Villa of Montcaret, based on ancient models, and you'll be amazed by the charm and richness of the place.

    Annoyingly, they were closed when I arrived at 10h15 this morning because “they had a group” - they wouldn’t let me in the museum or see anything at all. If you go, prepare to be disappointed!

    If you are interested in the Gallo Romans then this is a must visit site. Ruins of a vast villa with baths, heating system and some impressive mosaics. A mediaeval church is built on part of the site, the monks used stone from the villa.
