A village built entirely of red sandstone!

It was the first to be classified as one of France's most beautiful villages. It's a well-deserved accolade, because it's a truly delightful place to wander around.

Collonges-la-Rouge is a jewel of narrow medieval streets, Castels and fortified towers, earning it the nickname of "City of 25 Towers".

Nestling between walnut and chestnut trees, it's a great place to discover the built heritage and go hiking. You'll particularly enjoy wandering through the maze of scarlet streets dotted with stalls and restaurant terraces.

Ever heard of Terra Aventura? It's an application that lets you discover sites, villages, etc. by going on a treasure hunt: it's geocaching: you visit and learn while having fun.
