Things to see and do

Last stronghold of the Avant-Pays Savoyard, Castle Montfleury houses collections of exceptional richness. Very altered over the centuries, it retains a Saracen tower dating from the thirteenth century. One of the former owners of the castle (Marie Claude Giraud) rests with his wife and a few of their descendants, in the mausoleum that lies at the heart of the cemetery.
