What would you say to leaving for two days along the Allier for a river trip between walking, visits and white water sports aboard a canoe on one of the last wild rivers in Europe?

A quiet bivouac surrounded by nature on the banks of the Allier

Between paddle strokes in the rapids and disconnection along the water, the happy tribe unearthed wild creeks, rocks to climb and jump, and even a beach, the time of a bivouac between Chanteuges et Saint-Arcons-d'Allier. A natural camping area, quiet and in unspoiled nature. What happiness to feel alone in the world! All this for only 1,5 euro per day per adult and 1 euro per day per child.

A cultural break at the Priory of Chanteuges, which overlooks the Allier

For some, discoveries and cultural visits are inseparable from holidays, however sporty they may be. How fortunate, then, that Chanteuges either on the road. Between two dives and rowing strokes, we go up to see the medieval village and its priory perched on its dominating basalt rock. Allier, just to discover all its secrets…

Le Priory of Chanteuges retains the former abbey church dedicated to Saint-Marcellin first bishop of Embrun (founded in 936). It was later attached to the powerful Abbey of La Chaise-Dieu in 1137.

Rich in history, the Casadean site has gone through the ages, from the Middle Ages to the XNUMXth century. The old priory, the cloister, the Romanesque church with its figured capitals and the Sainte-Anne chapel are open all year round. Guided tours by appointment for groups.
