Discover the delightful charm of wine production in Auvergne villages.
Perched on the rocky peak from which it takes its name, Montpeyroux overlooks the Allier Valley. This small fortified village is built from local arkose sandstone, giving it a surprising "coppery" luminosity.
From atop its Romanesque keep, an excellent example of military architecture in Montpeyroux, Auvergne during the 12th and 13th centuries. You can overlook the village’s rooftops from a height of more than 30 m (98 ft) and take in the breathtaking view. Visually impaired visitors can discover the village thanks to its tactile model and the "sensory tour" specially prepared for them.
