hauteurs de Chateauneuf les BainsGorges vues du Ciel
The Gorges of the Sioule splendid and steep, unfold from the dam at Queuille to Ebrèuil in the Allier. A successions of meanders and a picturesque road which snakes along the banks of the river Sioule. Discover them by car, on foot, by canoe or fishing!
The Gorges de la Sioule spread out from the Queuille dam (Puy-de-Dôme) to Ébreuil (in the Allier). This means that the area is very hilly. The magnificent, steep gorges are looked over by Château-Rocher and by the Château de Chouvigny. A series of turns illustrate the presence of rocks made from contrasting materials. The Gorges de la Sioule and the Gorges de Chouvigny are listed as ZNIEFFs (areas of importance with regard to ecology, flora and fauna) and the entire Sioule basin is a Natura 2000 zone. A pretty little road winds alongside the river, but in summer, canoes are another way of exploring the region. It is also a fishing paradise.
