The Rocks of Servières
This circuit is part of the FFVélo Haute-Corrèze mountain bike base, the largest mountain biking area in France with 1000 km of marked circuits. There is a shortcut, the "Bois de Tempêtier" circuit, which is classified as difficult. This relatively easy going sports circuit includes a more technical passage at Rochers Servières. Be careful, many steep paths including the final section.
6 points of interest
Espace 1000 SourcesThe circuit starts near the Espace 1000 Sources stadium, a training centre that welcomes groups of sports enthusiasts who love the great outdoors. Behind this centre is Alain Mimoun, winner of the Sydney 1956 Olympic Games marathon, who had fine-tuned his preparations in Bugeat.
The pond of Condeau
The circuit runs along the edge of a private pond at Condeau (do not enter the property). If the Plateau de Millevaches is often spoken of as France's water tower because of the many rivers that flow from it, it is also rich in a multitude of ponds. All artificial, they have been created by man, who has most often dammed a stream at the end of a wetland, mainly for fishing.
- Heritage site
The Church of TarnacThe church of Saint-Gilles and Saint-Georges de Tarnac has the particularity of being of Romanesque origin from the 12th century, enlarged in the 14th and 15th centuries by a Gothic aisle. This characteristic makes it a monument that is unique in the region.
- Heritage site
Small flat stone bridgesThese "plank bridges" are typical of the Plateau and allow you to cross small watercourses. Made of several granite slabs, resting on stone piles erected in the stream bed, they allowed the shepherds to pass with their animals.
- Small patrimony
The Hamlet of ServièresAn authentic granite village of traditionally built dwellings which still represents an important part of the Corrèze heritage today.
Chaleix WoodThe Bois de Chaleix, with a ground area of about 150 ha, was acquired recently by the commune of Bugeat. Bordered by the Vézère river, it is composed of deciduous and coniferous trees. It offers many possibilities for sporting activities: hiking, orienteering, trail running, fishing and archery.
