The three cuves of Chambonnet - Sauret-Besserve

Meet below the majestic Fades Viaduct for a short walk that will take you to the hamlet of Chambonnet, nestled on the banks of the Sioule. Signs will lead you to the 3 Chambonnet cuves, a small natural waterfall that flows into a vat room before refroming a waterfall. The hamlet, its footbridge, the path along the Sioule, then the path that leads to the 3 vats, encourage relaxation and contemplation.
