The site of Les Cars
The village of Varièras
Varièras symbolises the renewal and creativity of the Plateau: if the cottage represents the traditional rural habitat of our region, the thatch is what predominates in this village of about fifty cottages. These buildings are real people's homes and are private properties that cannot be visited. On the descent after the village, the paved path goes down to the so-called Roman bridge of Variéras.

The river Corrèze
At the edge of the forest track (be vigilant because some of it is steep), at an altitude of 910 metres, the Corrèze river rises in the heart of the Plateau de Millevaches. Behind the rock, there is a small wet area from which flows a thin stream of water that is then lost in the forest. 100 km further on, after taking water to Tulle and Brive, the Corrèze flows into the Vézère.
