Highlights of Cotignac

From tours of the cliffs to tastings of local honey, the village has a great deal to offer, and remains lively all year round.

Lose yourself in the narrow and colourful streets of Cotignac – only to discover the small squares, pretty fountains, restaurants, shops and galleries.

For a breathtaking view of the village and its green landscape, visit the Notre Dame de Grâces sanctuary high up on the hill; or retrace the steps of history by exploring the limestone cliff and its medieval cave dwellings.
