Brioude is about half an hours drive from Les Trois Noyers.

You can get there by the main highway or via the smaller local roads following the river Langeac, providing the chance of experiencing the beautiful local scenery and the many beautiful local villages.  It is a drive worthy of making many stops along the way.

Brioude not a town for shopping, but of course in the good French tradition, has an ample amount of restaurants and cafés.

But Brioude does have something special as well, a church that absolutely must be seen.  It is unlike so many of the other churches in France and Europe by its windows which are adorned by modern art and by the church floor’s mosaic, which is simply indescribable
