Dotted with numerous farms and vineyards, the town is the perfect place to take a stroll along the footpaths, get lost on the narrow country roads and discover an enchanting heritage.

Stop off at the Port de la Morinière in the heart of the town and enjoy the peace and quiet.
The Acheneau is also the river of castles and manor houses. Take a look at the Château de Grandville, whose balcony columns are reminiscent of Italian architecture, or the Château de Briord.

Did you know ?

The town is located on an ancient Roman road known as the "salt route".  In days gone by, the river Acheneau was a major waterway, as evidenced by the Port de La Morinière, which until the early 20th century was a busy port for barges carrying grain, wine, timber and other goods. Today, this port is the ideal place for a peaceful fishing trip.
