"Lyons la Foret" Lyons-la-Forêt by Beausoleil
Lyons-la-Forêt Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 23 photos
When you drive into Lyons-la-Foret, you pass some tiny very medieval looking houses. Then you come to this gem where there is parking. This is the house where Maurice Ravel is supposed to have written Le Tombeau de Couperin.
It's a great introduction to the lovely little town.
For more pictures, see the Travelogue below.
This is a great place to have a cup of coffee while you watch the market across the street.
If you took away the cars, this would look like a movie set straight out of the Middle Ages . . . and it has been. Several movies have been made here so if it looks familiar, it probably is.
- Pros:Completely, utterly charming
- Cons:I can't stay forever
- In a nutshell:Lovely and relaxing
Do stop at the tourist office and get a walking map of Lyons la Foret. It is the perfect walking village, a quaint sight... more travel advice
