The town of 7 towers!

Martel is one of the "Most Beautiful Villages in France", and enjoyed a second period of glory in the 19th century thanks to the truffle trade. You can still take a ride on the 'Truffadou', a steam train that carried the truffles up the cliffside.

A town of art and history, Martel is now a dynamic and welcoming place to live.  Its cobbled, leafy streets wind between the many towers. Attractive boutiques, lively terraces, cafés and excellent restaurants complete a remarkable heritage. 

Throughout the year, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the farmers' market brings the main market hall to life. 

Don't miss a visit to the Reptiland tourist vivarium (one of our partners).
