    House of the Tree at Chamberet

    Created in 1999 on the initiative of Doctor Nicaud, mayor of Chamberet from 1965 to 2001, the Maison de l’Arbre, the Tree House, is located at the entrance of the Chamberet arboretum.
    Here, you can explore the world of bees, the fauna & flora of our forests, the making of cider and the transformation of the apple, the making of wooden clogs, etc. The arboretum, meanwhile, covers 18 hectares of natural landscape and is composed of more than 100 varieties of native and exotic species, as well as a fruticetum growing 76 varieties of apples. It also allows you to observe birds near the educational pond, to meet fallow deer around the Napoleonic fisheries or to visit the animal garden and the scented garden.
  • Small patrimony

    Old Oven

    This bread oven, known as “de l’Angle”, dates from the second half of the 19th century and probably bears its name because of its location; at the convergence of two paths: a sunken path, onto which the bread oven opens (south lateral wall), and a road, probably more recent, which passes behind the oven. The oven owner oversaw its use, and the villagers brought him their bread to bake on baking days. It was during the reign of Saint-Louis, in the 13th century, that the town over owners and providers were given the title of bakers.
  • Fauna

    Deer park

    The European fallow deer (Dama dama) is a ruminant artiodactyl mammal of the deer family. The fallow deer is a medium-sized animal. Only the male bears antlers (palmate), which it sheds each year in April/May. The buck’s hearing and sense of smell are complemented by exceptional daytime vision, their night vision being much less so. The age of a deer can be determined by the wear and tear on its molars.
  • Flora

    Massif des Monédières

    The Monédières massif is one of the seven landscape entities attached to the Millevaches Regional Natural Park in Limousin, covering an area of about 60 km². This preserved granite territory is located in the foothills of the Massif Central, to the south-west of the famous Millevaches plateau. Its dry moors are classified as Natura 2000 areas, synonymous with it being an exceptional site for flora and fauna.
  • Architecture

    Château de Lafarge

    The de Boisse family owned the Château de La Farge from the Middle Ages until the Revolution. In 1237, the Crusader knight André de Boisse paid an annuity on Lafarge’s land. The last lord who lived in La Farge was the Marquis Stanislas de Boisse who emigrated in 1881. In 1881, M. Talamon, a merchant in Paris, bought and restored the estate. For the garden, he called upon Edouard André, a famous landscape gardener.
