Vouillé et son architecture rurale

The commune brings together 5 villages located along the Lambon valley. It is from this valley that Vouillé takes its name. From the XNUMXth century, the Lambon welcomed the first inhabitants on its banks, builders of several mills, including one with oil, which has disappeared today. Agriculture and breeding ensured the development of the town at the beginning of the XNUMXth century. The hemp, grown on site, is transformed into yarn for weaving. Today Vouillé retains the charm of the villages with their mansions, farmhouses, dovecotes and dry stone walls. The hiking trails will help you discover the gentle way of life in this valley along the shaded alleys.

To see: Notre-Dame church (partly from the 12th century), E. Pérochon popular library (the smallest library in France), town hall (former La Barre castle), La Salmondière castle and “the turning stone” (“magical” megalith).
