Vouvant is known as one of the 'Most Beautiful Villages of France ' and is also classified under the label: 'Petites Cités de Caractère ' a symbol of remarkable architectural and natural heritage.

In this picture postcard village you can visit the Church of L’Église Notre Dame where the impressive Romanesque frontage of this building features wonderful carvings. Inside the Church, you will discover intricate sculptures and life-sized statues including the Virgin Mary and John the Baptist. A must-see is the 'Tour Mélusine ' which, according to legend, was built by the fairy Mélusine in a single night.

Just a few steps away is the verdant forest of Mervent, an idyllic escape bordering a lake of more than 300 acres. With this magnificent natural reserve on the doorstep, Vouvant is a heavenly destination for budding artists in search of inspiration. Known as a ‘village of artists’, in the summer artists open their doors to share their work. As well as individuals, there are creative studios hosting many exhibitions celebrating known and up-and-coming artists.
