Lussac les Châteaux deserves greater recognition

Lussac les Châteaux, in the Vienne department of western France, is a town whose name may not be known to you, but which offers such a diversity of interesting possibilities for things to see and do that it deserves much greater recognition. (Except, perhaps, that letting out its secrets may spoil it with a rush of popularity.)

Lussac les Châteaux welcomes historians, gourmets, sportsmen

The town variously appeals to sportsmen (who appreciate its leisure lake for fishing and swimming, and its superb rural position offering walking, cycling and equestrian pursuits), to historians and archaeologists (who can investigate the exciting discovery of caves, grottoes and artefacts from days gone by) and gourmets who find themselves spoiled for choice by the wonderful restaurants, including an excellent restaurant for vegetarians... as rare as hen's teeth in rural France!

A fascinating glimpse of history

The caves and grottoes of the area offer an amazing glimpse into past times. Take a walk to the old La Marche part of town to discover the ancient cave walls with remnants of cattle horns embedded into the ancient stones. Wander around the town and see the old part-timbered houses, the old inns with names reminiscent of old coaching inns in Britain such as Le Lion d'Or (The Golden Lion) and Le Grand Cerf (The Big Deer). Pop into the Raymond Touchard Museum, where more of the artefacts found locally can be seen, and learn about the history not just of the town but of the surrounding countryside. Lussac les Châteaux once had many water mills, and there is still some evidence of these around, with pretty mill streams and old millstones bearing witness to a busy past life.
