The charm of the greater South West 

5 km from Saint-Privat-des Prés, on the border of the Périgord, in the south of the Charente, the village of Aubeterre was built around a bucklet of the Dronne river. Its little charming streets wind between the houses of white stone and the old buildin. Once an old fortified town, Aubeterre is listed today “One of the Most Beautiful Villages of France”. 

The most outstanding and impressive monument in Aubeterre is the underground Church of Saint Jean, known as the monolithic church, located on the cliff which overhangs the Dronne. Carved entirely out the rock, the main nave reaches a height of 20m.
