Montpeyroux’s name (Rocky Mount) dates back to the end of the 11th century. At the entrance of the old fortified village, you could discover a beautiful porch from the 14th century. A donjon, old from the 13th century, overlooks houses and offers since its crenelated platform an exceptional panorama on the chain of Puy, the Sancy Mountain and also the Cantal mounts.
Let yourself be seduced by the labyrinth of streets and arched passages, whose oldest constructions date back to 1122. Let yourself be charmed by the wine-growing accommodations and by the old middle-class houses, which testify of the wine-making sector prosperity in the 19th century.
