The beautiful village of Angles-sur-l'Anglin
one of the most popular places to visit for
our guests at
'Les Balcons' - and us, I must have taken a thousand
photographs here! .
It is a photographers dream with its
castle ruins and high and low vantage points.
There is a spectacular fireworks display
on the first Sunday of August, the best in the area, with the
castle ruins as a backdrop. There is a fete in the afternoon
so you can spend a very pleasant day here having fun
and exploring before the night spectacular.
The village which is served
by many little restaurants where you can simply have a
coffee or drink or have an alfresco lunch,this charming
village offers a variety of eating options.
restaurants on the 'square' offer a simple lunchtime
menu where you can have omelette and chips for a
reasonable price. They are actually big enough to buy
one and share!
There is also a plethora of brocante, bric-a-brac shops to
There is also a very well
established 'salon de thé'- 'No 15' -
in the village which is run by an enterprising English
couple offering a great selection of teas, scones and cakes
as well as full meals. You can also have an ice cream to
cool you down after a cycle ride. Please note they are
closed on Wednesdays.
Angles-sur-l'Anglin has the Roc Aux Sorciers ( witches rock)
an exhibition that highlights the presence in the area of
a cave containing prehistoric carvings dating from 14
000 years ago. The cave was discovered
in 1950 but is inaccessible to the public in order
to conserve it. This site produces a replica of the site
to allow you to 'view' this important prehistoric
art-work. We have had mixed responses from guests
however, as to whether or not it is a worthwhile visit -
you may just have to visit to judge for yourself.
This is a 'must see' village.
