Vitry-en-Perthois, a French village
Charming town of about 800 inhabitants, Vitry-en-Perthois iwas created during the Roman era, and reached its peak in the Middle Ages, being an important site of seigneury. It was burned in 1544 by the armies of Charles V then rebuilt a few kilometers away by François I: it is the creation of the sister larger town Vitry-le-François.
Located underneath the last mountains of Champagne, the village is beautiful, simple and calm. Hiking to the mythical Mont de Fourche tree will offer you a magnificent panoramic view of the entire canton. You will feel like alone in the world, surrounded by vineyards on one side and wheat fields on the other side. Enjoy walking to the Sainte-Geneviève Chapel, the statue of Fatima or even the Saint-Memmie church.
A bar-tabac is close to the cottage and on the other side of the Saulx, you will find a bakery and a hairdressing salon. Five kilometers away, you will appreciate the pretty city of Vitry-le-François, 13 000 inhabitants. You can shop in one of the 3 major supermarkets, and find doctors, dentists, pharmacies, butchers, bars and restaurants, bookstores, tennis and sports area..).
