Accessible on foot from the car park near the bridge, the waterfall is in fact a penstock of the Sioule river, created by monks for the installation of a mill.


A narrow strip of land was cut through a meander and a sluice was used to shut off the water during floods to protect the mill wheel.
The surrounding area is equipped for relaxation and picnicking, and the Romanesque church is worth a visit, particularly for its exceptional mural frescoes. A family walk allows you to discover this picturesque village in a preserved natural setting.

To be discovered in the tourist offices of Les Combrailles: Heritage sheet n°5 Montfermy - the church of Saint Léger
