Listed as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France, Aubeterre-sur-Dronne immediately appeals to the visitors with its beautiful houses arranged as an amphitheatre and dominating the River Dronne. The charming wooden balconies decorating the facades of certain houses add to the picturesque nature of the place.
The village possesses a remarkable historic building, which is quite unusual: the Saint-Jean monolithic church, an underground church carved out of the rock in the 12th century by the Benedictines. This building has a vault reaching 20 metres high and is the biggest troglodyte church in Europe! This site should not be missed under any circumstances!
In the summer, the sandy beach along the River Dronne, below the village, is the perfect place for relaxing and swimming. Water sports fans can canoe and kayak to their heart's content on the River Dronne.
