Abbaye de Noirlac
This lovely Cistercian abbey, just outside St Amand-Montrond (about 45 minutes
drive), dates from the 14th century. Tours are available daily,
How to get there
- From Préveranges, look for and follow signs to Culan (direction St Amand-Montrond).
- At Culan, follow D-997, direction St Amand-Montrond
- You will come to a roundabout at the outskirts of St Amand. Here you want to follow signs for the N-144 direction Bourges.
- Take the N-144 towards Bourges for about 6 km. Watch for signs indicating the turn-off to Noirlac, which will be on the left.

The abbey is tucked away in idyllic cleft in the surrounding
hills. It's an ideal place for a picnic lunch... there are tables near
the parking area.
The cuisine at the small aubèrge
across the road from the abbey, just outside the portal leaging into the
charming village of Noirlac, is excellent.
