Discover Montaignac-Saint-Hippolyte, small village a few minutes away from Egletons.

On the banks of the departmental road 1089, Montaignac-Saint-Hippolyte is linked to Saint Hippolyte, who was martyred in the year 261. The village bore his name until 1931.

Rosiers d’Egletons, La Chapelle Spinasse or Champagnac-la-Noaille are some villages nearby. Montaignac-Saint-Hippolyte is watered by the Doustre, which can be followed during a short and pleasant hike.

Fishermen will also find their happiness, because a pond, called the Gros pond, and rented by the town, is especially dedicated to them.
