Spotlight on Correze
12 March 2017
In the Correze, you have a real feeling of getting away from it all, landscapes to take your breath away, a journey back in time, extraordinary natural sites, pretty granite stone properties, quaint little towns, villages and hamlets, and of course not forgetting the slower pace of life!
Named after the River Correze, running through the Department, the landscapes here are mountains, plateaus and valleys, home to many lakes, rivers, gorges and natural wonders.
Perfect for hiking and outdoor activities, the 'Plateau de Millevaches' is criss-crossed with numerous footpaths, cycle routes and mountain biking trails.
But there is so much more to the Correze than just natural wonders, such as the long hot summers but wonderful seasonal variances in the landscape; colourful markets, cafes and shops around many cities and towns such as Brive-la-Gaillarde and Tulle; the wonderful
town of Collonges-la-Rouge, entirely built with red sandstone is one of the most visited sites in the whole of the Limousin region.
The number of spectacular views never cease to amaze, thanks to the landscape and combination of villages and towns in the area. Correze has five villages belonging to the 'Prettiest Villages of France' category (Les Plus Beaux Villages De France)
