This small, residential village at the base of the valley has 229 inhabitants and enjoys a microclimate that produces a rich vegetation. You might see some vines.
Just 1,5 km from La Chambre and shop area you wil find the village of Notre Dame du Cruet which is a small village that is sheltered and sunny and a pleasant place to live.
19th century church and bell dating from 1667 called Anne-Françoise is listed along with a painting by Jean-Baptiste GOMMARD (1682). Its wall bears a mural that represents le Bon pasteur – the good pastor.
A hundred metres along the road you will find an oven le four banal where, each year, the entertainments committee organises a village fayre with bread cooking – la cuisson du pain de pays.
The chapel – La chapelle du Cuchet dominates the village providing an astonishing viewpoint of La Chambre.
Below the chapel on the rock face you can see a few remains of the walls of an old château des seigneurs de La Chambre. Philippe De Mario has written about these lords of La Chambre in a book that is on sale from the Tourist Office in La Chambre.
