Estoublon, the village

Estoublon was no doubt originally a staging post for stagecoaches (its name probably derives from Establo, meaning “little stable”).

From its past Estoublon has conserved a clock tower listed as a historical monument and a 12th century church whose apse is listed.

Estoublon, street

Once you've parked in the fine car park in the shade, perhaps you'll fall in love with this village nestled against a mound.

It's still a farming village, although it's also been adopted by city-dwellers who have begun renovating these magnificent old stone buildings.


Estoublon, wash-house


It's understandable, because Estoublon is particularly enchanting, with its superb houses built from the local river stone, its two wash houses with tiled roofs, its streets, clean and quiet.



Estoublon, street



Estoublon is surprising as it is picturesque, exuding an agreeable feeling of intimacy, and will enchant you for sure.


Don't leave without buying something, olive oil, dried flowers or essence of lavender, the local specialities!
