Promenade de la Pierre qui Tourne


Departing from the centre of Sautin, in front of the former town hall, the Promenade de la Pierre qui Tourne (‘turning stone walk’) leads you to discover a route with an uneven relief that runs through woods and meadows. Upon leaving the village, you will discover the Tree of Youth, which was planted in 1650. The story goes that parents launched a search after the disappearance of their daughter. It was then that the youth of the village discovered her half-asleep. Grateful for this miracle, they planted this oak stem. The itinerary passes close to Château Doyen, which was constructed at the end of the 19th century, on the site of a low-shaft furnace. The route ends at the so-called ‘Pierre qui Tourne’, where two large stones, which are probably Neolithic in origin, are found.
