Le Quiou excavations

The site of Le Quiou was found thanks to an aerial photo taken in 1989. Since then, archeologists have been working on site each year the whole month of August.

Slowly they are discovering remains of Gallo-Roman villas: baths, living quarters, vases, etc.

The villa there is one of the most ancient, the foundations dating from the first century AD.

Visits are organised in the summer by the association "Les Pierres Vives". You can also visit the site unaccompanied.

Le Quiou is about 2 miles away from Evran and from our gite.

Free visit, free car park.
