And to start your day off on the right foot, Laurence and Alain provide an extensive continental or buffet breakfast served overlooking the pool or in your own room.
The hotel can be found in Saint-Pardoux-l’Ortigier, close to Brive, in Corrèze. From here, you can easily explore the surrounding beautiful regions, including the Dordogne, Quercy and Limousin.
THE MILLEVACHES PLATEAUIf you’re looking to explore a little on foot, the Millevaches Plateau is perfect for you. Some say these highlands owe their name to a shepherdess who was once saved from a storm by the devil’s thousand cows. Others say the term means ‘thousand springs’ or ‘desert mountain’. However it came about, the Millevaches Plateau regional parkland, a remarkable natural ecosystem, is truly splendid. Particularly worthy of a visit are the 8,000-year-old Longeyroux peat land and Mont Bessou (977m high), affectionately known as ‘Limousin’s rooftop’.
BEAULIEU-SUR-DORDOGNELocated within the Périgord National Park in Limousin, this beautiful medieval city can be found on a winding section of the Dordogne valley, the perfect place for a relaxing stroll. The pleasant climate and year-round sunshine have earned this part of France its nickname as ‘Limousin’s Riviera’. Beaulieu is also famous for the lavish entrance to its Romanesque church and for the remains of an ancient Benedictine monastery found nearby.
TULLEKnown for lace, but also arms, royal manufacturing and its accordion factories: Tulle is a charming little Correzian town dominated by its imposing cathedral bell tower. Tulle has a wide range of pretty little medieval streets and fantastic museums for you to explore, such as the Tulle Cloister Museum. In the former Benedictine Monastery of Saint-Martin, you can admire 13th century art and traditional artefacts, medieval works of art, watercolours and paintings by Gaston Vuillier, Tulle lace fabrics and more.
