When you come to Orges, a visit to the Moulin de la Fleuristerie, France's last remaining centre for the manufacture of floral accessories, is a must. In the workshop, you can see the 19th-century machines still driven by the paddle wheel, which also produces 110-volt electricity.


The neighbouring village of Chateauvillain, one of the 5 Petites Cités de Caractère® in Haute-Marne, is well worth a visit. Chateauvillain boasts a remarkable heritage: fortified walls dating from the 12th and 14th centuries, the Tour de l'Auditoire, the remains of a medieval and 17th-century castle, etc. It is also home to the superb Parc aux Daims, where you can wander around and observe the animals free of charge.
