There is a yellow marked walk loop above the village with stunning karstic rocks and remains from medieval settlement. It takes about one hour from the village, healthy walk to add to the visit of the village preferably during cool hours of the day. Beautiful...More

A hike up to the chateau reveals this walk through lunar landscape in the hills behind Sauve. Choose your preferred length of walk from the signposts and wear sensible non-slip shoes as there is some scrambling involved in parts. However, I have seen families with...More

What a fascinating and atmospheric place; oozing with ancient history and supported by genuinely interesting plaques. The artworks are a bonus and the paths well marked. Nice to be able to park the car and set off immediately from the car park. We particularly enjoyed...More

After reading the TA reviews I was a bit concerned that the walk would be to advanced for us, 2 adults - of dubious fitness levels - and our 9 year old. We're so glad threw caution to the wind and did the walk, it...More

We decided to take a random walk around thus delightful town and just happened upon this circuit walk through a totally different type if terrain with very interesting stopping points of interest. A fascinating and easy walk, but in places a bit hard underfoot.

If you are fairly fit this 'climb' is well worth the effort. The trail, steep in places, and, as the name suggests, rocky! There are markers showing the route and along the way the story unfolds of how La Mer des Rochers came about, it...More

The Mer des Rochers (sea of rocks), is a magical place. Part of ancient Sauve lies hidden here, with old 'Mazets' hidden amongst the trees. Rocks to clamber up, like a miniature Monument Valley and with a 14th century Bishop's Palace, which is sometimes open...More
