Visit Avallon and the Costume Museum
Succumb to the incredible charm of this lovely medieval town standing on a rocky spur! It boasts heritage features conserved from the 15th century and a lovely cobblestone pedestrian street lined with shops and artists' studios. The historic district, the picturesque St Lazare collegiate church and the ramparts have been used many times as film sets for the 7th art.
But the surprise you least expect when you come to Avallon is the Costume Museum, housed in a private building - a former private mansion - and organised by the Carton family. Keep your eyes wide open and enjoy the museum's fabulous stories as told by its collections of costumes and fine artworks.
Added bonus: take a tour of the town on the "grenouille" trail. It couldn't be simpler: collect your booklet from the tourist office and follow the ground arrows.
