Le Veurdre, situated on the banks of the Allier, was once a very ancient port. The river closely follows the low lying areas of the village.
A welcoming village, with all essential services, Le Veurdre offers camping municipal, an auberge/hotel offering 50 beds (“Hotel du Pont Neuf”) and 2 small museums of interest to nature lovers (“La Maison de la Nature/Maison de la Battellerie”). Canoeing for the “adept” and fishing is also an attraction.
The bridge offers a chance to view one of Europe’s last natural rivers.
