La Chaise-Dieu The Essential
Recommended
Set on a sprawling wooded plateau that links the Livradois and Forez mountain ranges, the houses of this small village are grouped around the vast, majestic buildings of its famous Benedictine abbey. As well as admiring the impressive abbey church and the extraordinary treasures contained within it, you will perhaps have the chance of attending a concert as part of its classical musical festival, held at the end of August. La Chaise-Dieu is also famous for its mushrooms.
