Moulin du Clout is about a 20 minute drive from the town of Maurs 'the Nice of the Cantal'. A pleasant place to shop with a Thursday morning market, cafes, restaurants and all the usual sorts of shop. The Tour de France came through in 2004 and 2011.

A panoramic village with a chateau (uninhabited) and a fete in September. there is a good walk from the village, around the chateau and back.

A stunning architectural gem although a bit touristy. A good day out but get there early as parking is a problem.


An attractive village that has a Chestnut Museum and hosts a famous chestnut fair and festival in October. It also has a good restaurant with chestnuts featuring on the menu!
