Points of interest

Saint-Nicolas Church


The church was built in the 16th century but it seems that a building founded in the 12th century was present before it.

The church has two distinct roofs, which can be seen by the difference in height of the roofs. One protects the nave and the other the choir with a flat chevet and the whole is connected by an arcade, visible inside the building. 

Inside, you can discover a collection of remarkable frescoes, from the 16th century, to the glory of Saint Eloi and Saint André. The adoration of the Magi dates from the 17th century. A statue of Saint Mamert de Bretagne from the 18th century in polychrome wood.

The church has been classified as a Historic Monument since 1966.

The pond of La Reverdière


If you look up, you may be able to see a flock of birds because behind the thick hedge on your right is the Reverdière pond, a place of transit for many migratory birds.



This beautiful restored house was a 16th century farm.
