Montmarault, Village Etape

take a break in a Village Étape


77 - that's the number of Villages Etapes you'll find on your holiday route.

Montmarault, a town with a population of around 1,500, is one of them, right in the heart of the Bourbonnais and even right in the heart of France, conveniently located at the crossroads of the east-west axis (A79 / Route Centre Europe Atlantique - RCEA) and the north-south axis (A71, Clermont-Ferrand/Paris).

You'll find all the services you need: accommodation, restaurants and shops to make life easier!

You can find Montmarault on the Villages Etapes website, as well as the Bourbonnais towns of Lapalisse , Varennes-sur-Allier and Dompierre-sur-Besbre .

Boutique des Produits de l'Allier


You can spot the Villages Etapes logo on the roads of France, so you can be sure of finding accommodation there whatever the time of day you arrive, and of finding food shops or more useful facilities such as chemists, petrol stations, etc. during the day.



This much-revamped church features modillions with chips, masks and geometric designs dating from the 13th century. The bell tower dates from the 18th century. A 15th-century font bears the arms of the Dukes of Bourbon.

On site, a leaflet presents a remarkable painting: "Saint Michael slaying the dragon" (MH), a copy by Raphael.
