The village of Aurel

Historic site and monument, Historic patrimony, Town / Village in Aurel

  • Built on a rocky spur, the best way to discover the village in all of its splendour is to take the road from Sault.

    Such an environment was bound to seduce painters and René Seyssaud or Pierre Ambrogiani indeed set their studio in the village.

    At the exit of the village, in the direction of Montbrun-les-Bains, you will pass a dining area with a children’s playground, and some botanic paths at the hamlet les Crottes
    An important second-hand trade is organized on Ascension Day, and the village festival takes place on the third weekend of July.
