A charming break in the bourbonnaise area of the Allier surrouded by fortified walls.
As a fortified town and a major trading centre in the Middle Ages, Charroux’s mediaeval heritage includes carved stone facades dating from the 15th to 18th centuries, a remarkably well preserved14th century corbelled, half-timbered house, in addition to a large number of wells.
A very special atmosphere can be found in this small village. It is today famous for its legendary mustard made from white Saint-Pourçain wine, and produced by a local craftsman still keeping the main trade and traditions alive.
