Auvergne Giro Passion

Reviewed By morkhus

Un cadeau, un baptême en autogire. Et bien pas du tout déçu, un report pour cause de mauvais temps car le propriétaire préfère un vol où on peux profiter de la vue et pouvoir partager sa passion. un +.
Tout s'est très bien passé et je recommande.

L'Abbatiale Saint-Austremoine

Reviewed By Soccca - Tolmin, Slovenia

This Romanesque church is really something. It looks big, but nothing special from outside. But inside there is an amazing surprise. The painted columns emphasize the beauty of this church. One of the most beautiful I have seen in my journey around France.

Chateau de Parentignat

The château of Parentignat was built between 1707 and 1720 by Anne-Francois de Lastic, Marquess of Sieujac and Captain of a Royal infantry regiment, on the foundations of an old fortress. The chateau remains in the family to this day and is the object of an extensive restoration programme.The landscaped Gardens can be viewed from the Terrace at the back of the château, which is lined with heirloom roses and fantastic orange trees in their original 18th century pots. The gaiety of this green and pleasant "natural" garden provides a stark contrast with the formal geometry of the lawns in the front courtyard which have been restored recently, along with the avenue of lime trees leading to the chateau's entrance.The château has always been renowned for being so sumptuously appointed. Its furniture and art collections have always been exceptional.

The chateau is known as the little Versailles, and is considered "living history" as the present day owners still live in it. It's family-owned and handed down through the generations, which gives it a special feel.
The guided tour costs 9e each, and is conducted in French, and the guide spoke extensively about the art pieces in the chateau, which ranged from paintings to tapestries to sculptures. There is even a modern piece currently on exhibition (I think until September 2012), but I shall not spoil the surprise.
The garden out the back is English style, and one is allowed to roam the grounds freely before/after the guided tour. Lovely for photography, which is just as well since photo-taking is not permitted in the chateau itself.
Visit only if you are confident in understanding French (I only understood about 85% of what was said), or if you have a kind enough friend to translate for you, as I was told the tour is not conducted in English. Otherwise, it's really worth the visit, especially the library!

La Tour de l'Horloge

Reviewed By Marisa G - Geraldton, Australia

Apart from the Tour de L'Horloge this town is quite unremarkable I guess we have been spoilt by the beautiful towns in Provence and the Ardeche but I would not bother a detour if this is not on route

Eglise Saint-Austremoine

Reviewed By anneetmichel - Tours

Ce splendide monument très évocateur (et gratuit) vous intéressera d'autant plus si vous avez acheté le petit livre sur l'abbatiale au café tabac juste en face de l'entrée. Il vaut moins de 7 euros et vous permettra de mieux comprendre les chapiteaux (à la fin du livre) ainsi que les évolutions de ce chef d’œuvre du 12 ème au 20 ème siècle. Bonne visite !

Centre d'art Roman

Reviewed By Garry M - Lichfield, United Kingdom

An average expereince that seemed to promise so much more. Not much in the way of roman art which we expected and only one section contained any english translation ( I know we shouldnt be so lazy).
It is mainly a museum of medieval life working the vines and some background to the Abbey

Dans le bâtiment d'accueil du circuit sont exposées des voitures sportives anciennes (austin, BMW, Opel manta, R5 turbo...) + un lot très important de Ferrari et quelques raretés (Gamine 500 Vignale, Iseta...)
Le circuit est magnifique et très technique. Dommage que le week-end une petite partie soit fermée pour éviter les nuisances sonores.
Le stage de pilotage Almacar s'est déroulé de façon très efficace avec une équipe très professionnelle et très sympa qui met dessuite en confiance.
