Perched on the edge of a high cliff, the Roche du Prêtre viewpoint in Consolation-Maisonnettes, offers a magnificent panoramic view of the green landscapes of the Consolation rock formations. Renowned for its former convent, this wild place rich in fauna and flora, is home to a number of caves, springs and waterfalls. Not to be missed: the big waterfall of Lançot, a magnificent 47-metres high waterfall! And there's no better way to discover the area's treasures than walking along the waymarked footpaths.
