The Roannais region is the crossroads between different regions, the Lyonnais, Burgundy and the Auvergne, each with their rich historical and natural heritage and is full of things to see and do.
Ancient abbeys in fortified villages full of local character, such as Villerest and Saint-Jean-Saint-Maurice, châteaux by lakes and water with superb vistas, there is lots to do and see.
Sports lovers can indulge in a game of tennis or golf, in immaculately-maintained facilities, or set out on the hiking trails across the varied countryside of the Côte Roannaise, on foot, on mountain bike or on horseback…
And the water sports on Villerest lake
swimming, pedalos, dinghies, surf boarding, canoeing… are ideal for every generation.
