Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The Eglise Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption is a beautiful church situated in the centre of the village. It is very picturesque from the outside with a lovely fountain bubbling away opposite! The inside is peaceful as you would expect and frequently there are exhibitions in the room attached to the side of the church. These can be art exhibitions or historic ones and often free or demanding a modest fee.
    From the church you can descend to the bridge into the village looking back on the right to Le Monastère a picturesque housing development and then turn continue so that on your left is the old Lavage where the people of old used to do their communal washing! Walk opposite and find the lake where there is access all round to walk. There is a quiet spot with seating and statue of Mary cut into the stone cliff. The walk around the lake is not all hard standing and can be difficult for disabled and wheel chair bound people. As you walk around you come to the base of
    Vouvant and look up at the battlements seeing how difficult the aggressors of ole would have found accessing Vouvant would be! There is an arch and walkway back up to the streets of the village where if you turn left at the top you will make your way back to the centre of the village and of course the church. On finishing sightseeing make your way to one of the three cafes!

    The large ancient key to this attraction is available from the Office de Tourisme de Vouvant which is opposite in the car park of another key is available from Cafe Melusine also opposite next to the toilets. This is quite a climb to the top and is all steps! Looking initially at the tower you are surprised it is still standing with a lot of stone at the base looking like it has fallen away! The first flight of stairs to the door are steep, narrow and without hand rails so take your time and be careful. Entering into the Tower the stairs here are winding quite enclosed and take you to a first floor in the Tower where you can catch your breath! Then the final assault to the top where you can see a panoramic view of Vouvant and the surrounding countryside. On a windy day hold on to your hat as it can get blowy up there!

    The free English map is essential and it allowed us to take the whole town walk knowing what is waht.

    We spent nearly an hour in this charming shop .. Lots of lovely jewellery and gifts with something for everyone.. and so nice to find a huge choice of 'something a bit different' without paying a fortune!!

    The owner was delightfully helpful (and patient!) and her daughter has recently opened a small clothing boutique through the back of the shop upstairs.

    I would definitely recommend a visit and bet you won't be able to buy a trinket or two
