The Roannais, my destination ...

Nature & Outdoor

Between land and water, nature makes the heart of Roannais beat faster and offers great prospects for discovery and change of scenery. The Plateau de la Verrerie bears witness to this: this Natura 2000 site impresses with the great variety of species that coexist in peat bogs.

Heritage

In its postcard decor, the Château de la Roche perfectly symbolizes the finest things the Roannais has to offer to take you back in time. The territory also gives pride of place to priories and abbeys, signs of an important monastic and spiritual past.
