A mysterious stone parc
Aug. 2019 • Family
Stones carry their load of legends and mystery.
Once you reach after a 10 minutes walk in the woods, the stones park , you are surprised by the number of these monolith or megaliths .
It s spread out like à files of rock and you can't stop thinking that this site must have been the sanctuary of magic ceremonies in the past.
To be seen, if you believe that stones are also living things.

Apart from the rocks that defy gravity and the views from the top, there is also bouncy castle, trampolines, crazy gold, laser games and adventure in the trees. Also a wonderful restuarant and cafe. All in all great fun for all ages

Lovely. Free, lots of parlaying, lots of chances to climb.
Aug. 2017
Not at all disabled aces friendly. A steep uneven walk to the stones which are very impressive. Lots and lots of space and lots of chances for great photos, climbing and just enjoying the outdoors. There is also a restaurant, inflatables, mini golf and high ropes course at the site (not free.) if its's nice weather weather we'd recommend a picnic. Lots of parking and toilets at site. ,

A Mystical place
Jul. 2017 • Family
Right next to Le Chalet des Pierres Jaumâtres Restaurant. Large car park at the bottom and then a 10 min walk up to them located on Mont Barlot at an altitudes of 591m. They are about 40 enormous granite blocks that look like they have been dropped from the sky.

A hidden gem
Jul. 2017 • Family
If you're anywhere in or near the north-eastern area of what's now Nouvelle Aquitaine (formerly Limousin) then the Pierres Jaumatres is a must-see, understated tourist attraction. It's a few kilometres away from the small market town of Boussac.
The Pierres are a collection of massive granite boulders on the summit of Mont Barlot. These are all that now remain of a once-huge volcano that towered 2km in height.
The name Pierres Jaumatres is derived from the Latin word Matres (Mothers). Matres were ancient female deities that were worshiped in ancient times by the Gauls and Celts. Not surprisingly there are a lot of fairy tales and legends associated with the Pierres, and you can see why when you visit. They do have an air of mystery and magic.
There is a recently opened new 'boucle de retour' that now makes for a nice circular walk around the Pierres. There are some geocaches to be found there too.
It's an excellent visit and attractive at any time of year, although obviously slippery in snow and ice. There's an amazing view towards Boussac with it's beautiful castle and surrounding countryside from the top.
On the practical side there is ample car parking and well marked trails. These are not particularly pushchair friendly, but it's doable with an effort. There's a café on site where there are toilets (there aren't any public ones), but the café isn't open all year round. Connected with the café is a tree-top adventure, also crazy golf, and there's a small collection of pets to see.
