Petite cité de caractère
Châteldon is a village known for its mineral water, naturally fizzy, with elegant little bubbles. The most eminent person to have appreciated the water’s benefits was none other than France’s Sun King, Louis XIV, Châteldon water regularly ordered for Versailles. Châteldon is also a charming parish centred around its medieval village nestling in a green setting at the foot of a steep forest, the Massif des Bois Noirs. Three circuits encourage visitors to wander through the lanes around the castle and to look for vestiges of buildings from down the centuries as well as of signs of how the inhabitants’ lives developed through time.
