The town of Valderoure, which means “valley of the oaks” in French, stretches along the verdant plain of the La Lane, with small hamlets exuding copious charm: Malamaire is home to an old noble house with a round tower; Valentin features the ancient Saint Léonce chapel and a Roman sarcophagus; and La Ferrière has a small, equally enchanting chapel of its own. Set against a beautiful rocky cliff, the venerable houses of Valderoure form a line over a vast meadow, as though arrayed for the very pleasure of visitors.
