the one and only "most beautiful villages of France" in Loir-et-Cher!
Leave your car at one of the free parking lots, cross the gothic bridge spanning the Loir and discover the village at the foot of its fortress.
You may also get there by bike since Lavardin is on the bicycle path to Santiago de Compostela.
The remains of the fortress with its 26-meter high keep dating back to the 11th century is open from May to September.
We also recommend visiting saint Genest church to see the exceptional frescos dating from the 12th to the 16th centuries.
Another unmissable discovery in Lavardin: what the locals call the “rotte aux biques“, a panoramic path along the hill. This “goats’ path” is a somewhat demanding hike but the panoramic views over the village and the Loir river are worth it.
The path, on the GR 35 hiking circuit, follows several troglodytic houses, bed and breakfasts, artists studios…
On the panoramic path, nature lovers will discover educational panels. With the free Ecobalade mobile phone application, you will be able to identify the fauna and flora of Lavardin.
Discover Lavardin with your family, answering Randoland game questions or on the GuidiGo free mobile phone application.
