Once upon a time in Montaut-les-Créneaux

Pretty and flowery, this village could be the setting of a fairy tale. Let's discover this little typical Gascon jewel.

A fortified village

Montaut-les-Créneauxis a XII century castelnau * that has preserved many traces of its history. Most of the vestiges of the past are classified. By following the walkway, one can see the castle (private) with the crenellated square keep which is at the origin of the name of “Montaut-les-Créneaux”.

In summer, ask for the key at the tourist information office and enter to admire the view from this strategic place.

A crazy charm

Once the surrounding wall has been crossed, the houses of the village line up on either side of the square. They are mostly built of limestone rubble. Their corbels and half-timberings are beautifully preserved.

The Romanesque church dedicated to Saint-Michel deserves a stop; lovely frescoes adorn the walls.

A bucolic environment

From small gardens dotted around the village to hiking trails that radiate around Montaut-les-Créneaux, nature is very present here. Footpaths lead to Bois de Pilhat, the chapel of Biane or the suburb of Malartic. Along the way the views of the countryside and Auch nearby are magnificent.
