The Méouzette Gorge
A natural boundary between the Corrèze and the Puy de Dôme, the Chavanon is born from the confluence of two streams, the Ramade and the Méouzette.
It continues its course through gorges then flows into the Dordogne, upstream of the Bort-les-Orgues dam reservoir.
Natura 2000 classified along its entire course, it is a river famous for its trout. It should be noted that one of the arches of the bridge was set aside as the water supply channel of the old rock mill.
After offering views over the Ramade, the hike leads you to a beautiful lake.
While Haute-Corrèze is often identified as the water tower of France because of the many rivers that have their sources there, it is also rich in a multitude of ponds and lakes. All artificial, they were created by humans, who most often dammed a stream at the end of a wetland, mainly for fishing.
Le Massif du Sancy
Village of Laroche-prés-Feyt
On the way back, a detour in the village is necessary. Note the name of the restaurant, Le Graphologue; a tribute to Father Michon, the graphologist, whose birthplace is in the village. This clergyman invented graphology, a "science" that analyses the personality of its author through writing.
In addition to admiring the traditional local architecture and a feudal mound, continue on to the church, transferred in the eighteenth century from the gorges. Its interior has been beautifully restored.
Marking: brown arrows
