Lac Chambon travelogue picture
We were driving in direction of Murol, where we wanted to visit a castle (see report). I told my travel companion to stop and park the car. I wanted to take a few pictures of the cemetary.
The pictures didn`t turn out good, but it was worth the stop.

Favourite spots:
Lac Chambon is actually a very small village, a few older houses thrown together. There isn`t much to see.
Although the surrounding villages do sell assorted cheese and local wine, I didn`t see any shops of any kind here.

What's really great:
The cemetary is built across the road and across from the village center. It is built in a hill, topped with a great large temple` where they storage the coffins. It is one of the only cemetaries that had grass growing between the tombs. Most cemetaries I`ve seen in Auvergne were but rocks and tombs.

Accommodations:
I don`t believe there is any accomodations here, the village was extremely small. There was only but a dozen houses following the water way.

Nightlife:
I doubt there are any clubs here. Perhaps there`s a local pub but that`s about it.
