Which do you prefer? The softness of the deciduous forests, the mysteries of the coniferous undergrowth, the landscape of the heath moors…
Once you have admired the bell tower, unique in France, discover the Corrèze forest with its hardwood and softwood plantations. Then follow in the footsteps of the villagers who returned to the village along a magnificent ridgeline wooded with oak and beech trees where holly has an important place. The forest is home to many birds and wild animals which you can observe during the hike.
