For buying and selling property in Cérilly

Cérilly is authentically French

Cérilly is an attractive small town in the Allier department of central France, that will appeal to anyone looking for an authentic French way of life. Without the pressures to adapt to mass tourism, Cérilly continues its daily life much as it has done for centuries. It's got, however, the welcome addition of useful shops and amenities. And, it's close enough to larger towns and attractions to keep all members of the family entertained.

Amenities available in town

Whilst Cérilly is set in an extensive and unspoilt countryside, it's also a vibrant community and offers everything you'll need for your day to day life. A Carrefour supermarket provides everything from groceries to the latest fashions, while a collection of smaller shops such as boulangeries and boucheries are on hand for a more traditional style of shopping should you prefer. In fact, Cérilly also has an even more traditional way to shop, with a street market being held every Thursday.

Heritage to explore - both built and natural

Cérilly has some important heritage too. The Church of St Martin, complete with bell tower, and the Chapel of Dubois are both worth a look if you're interested in the architectural history of the region. Then there's the Château de la Pierre, plus the Museum of Cérilly's famous son, Charles-Louis Philippe, set in the house where the great poet was born. Of course, the natural heritage that surrounds the town deserves a mention too. The town lies in the Bourbonnais Bocage, on the edge of the celebrated Forest of Tronçais. This glorious forest dates back to the early 13th century, and is home to the oldest and finest oak trees in western Europe.

Enjoy outdoor activities in the beautiful countryside

Many of the best pleasures to be found in this area are simple. Walking, cycling, picnicking in the countryside are all perfect ways to spend your time here. But around and about you'll also find plenty more things to do and see. Golfers can enjoy their sport at Golf Montlucon, just around 20 kilometres from Cérilly. There are also opportunities for horse-riding, swimming and fishing. The nearby mediaeval town of Bourbon l'Archambault is just down the road, as is the scenic market town of Cosne d'Allier.
