La Tablier

This small commune on the D50 between Rosnay and Chaille-sous-les-Ormeaux would be of little interest, if it were not for the fact that it is on one of the prettiest stretches on the River Yon. Just south of the village the river drops through a steep sided valley where rounded boulders are strewn about as if left by some giant who has abandoned a game of marbles in mid stream. Excellent walks extend along well marked paths, with information plaques describing the various trees, insects and animals as well other aspects of this delightful beauty spot.

Near the bottom of the valley stand the ruins of an ancient water mill as well as other buildings, which serve as reminders that this was once a busy industrial area where man harnessed the power of the river.

Above the ruined mill is the restaurant Guinguette de Piquet, here on summer evening one can enjoy music while enjoying ones meal. Evenings in concert are very popular so it advisable to book well in advance. The river banks with their small meadows are also a very popular place to picnic, or just
to relax and enjoy this enchanting little oasis.
