Situated at the base of the haut bocage
this country town is the birth place of two of Frances most famous
wartime leaders of the last 150 years, Georges Clemenceau (1841-1929)
and Jean de Lattre de Tassigny (1889-1952).
The squart 15th century village church that uses a carillon of 13 bells
to play "Ave Marie" just before the hour strikes, faces a large open
village square with trees and shrubs which is surrounded by some elegant
A side street near the church has the house where Georges Clemenceau was
born and the house where Marshal de Lattre de Tassigny was born is now
the museum des deux Victoires.
The town has several restaurants,bars and cafes to service the many
visitors that come each year not only to see the museum but to take in
the Rochers de Mouilleron which stands on the hills above the town.
Rochers de Mouilleron.By
walking the Sentier des Meuniers (millers path)from the old lavoir
(washing place) up the hill through the trees you come upon the ridge
where originally 14 windmills stood, the "Collines du Moulins". Today
only 3 remain, one of which is an oratory to the memory of Marshal de
Lattre de Tassigny. Of course you can cycle or drive up to the windmills
where all along the ridge there are tremendous views on either side
across the bocage.
