Bonnat - a market town with a difference

The small market town of Bonnat is an old French town with a real difference. In addition to the old streets and houses of the community, typical of the region, the town owns its chateau to which has been added a successful motor racing circuit! Definitely one for the boys of the family (large or small!) to love.

Discover the history of Bonnat

Bonnat is, in many ways, a typical, traditional old market town in rural France, with everyday life in Bonnat being made easy by a good selection of shops and services. These include small shops, a supermarket, pharmacies, doctors and vets, schools and restaurants. The street market takes place every Saturday morning, overlooked by graceful old buildings, some of which have been around since the early Middle Ages. The Church of Saint Savien was built in the 13th century, while the chateau and the beautifully restored mediaeval lavoir (old public wash house) also bear testimony to a long history.

Enjoy the motor racing circuit

What is really different about Bonnat, however, is that in the grounds of the chateau, which is owned by the commune, there is an established motor racing circuit. Various events are held at the circuit including car and motorcycle races, and the circuit even incorporates a restaurant for social and corporate functions.
