While driving past we saw this rock standing tall in an area that was really flat. On investigation we found a lovely little village with a climb up to a chapel. We were lazy and drove up to the top where there is a free...More

What a gem of a place. Park at the bottom and walk up or take the narrow steep single track road and drive up and park, either way it's all good fun. The Mont is lovely, a perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon with...More

So, there is a steep walk but it's only for 3 or 4 minutes. When you get to the top there is a beautiful area with trees and grassland ( oh, and a car park - so if you are driving then you can negotiate...More
