The Corrèze is the perfect outdoor playground, whether you’re canoeing along the Vézère or Dordogne rivers, cycling or hiking through the unforgettable landscapes of the Plateau de Millevaches or Dordogne valley, or floating high up in the sky in a hot-air balloon, allowing the wind to carry you over our beautiful countryside. Breathe in the fresh air and enjoy a real sense of freedom, as you explore, experiment and set off on magical adventures in this very special region !

We have something for all tastes and budgets, from hotels, B&Bs and gîtes, to campsites, tourist residences and holiday villages for family holidays, and youth hostels for trips away with friends. 

As though conjured up by a spell, straight out of the history books, our magnificent villages have retained all their medieval charm with their troubadours, citadels and fortified castles. They include the villages of Curemonte, Turenne, Collonges-la-Rouge, Saint-Robert and Ségur-le-Château, all of which are offi cially recognised as some of the Most Beautiful Villages in France.

Passion for fishing

The Corrèze is a fisherman’s paradise. Our 5,000km of streams and rivers are teeming with minnow, gudgeon, brown trout and grayling, while pikeperch, pike and carps swim in our 4,000 hectares of reservoirs and lakes. Fly-fishing enthusiasts can visit our cockerel-breeding farms where the feathers used to bait trout and grayling are sourced. In 14 “no-kill” fishing areas, you can test your skills against trout and then return your catch to the water.

"Hearty and refined, and based on traditions handed down from generation to generation, the cuisine of the Corrèze conveys the full flavour of our land. Red and rosé vin de pays, vin paillé (literally "straw wine"), millassous de pommes de terre (a potato pie), stuffed ceps, farcidures (a type of potato and meat dumpling), tourtous (buckwheat pancakes) morel and chanterelle mushrooms, and truffles provide the perfect accompaniment to our delicious meats (Limousin beef red Label, milk-fed veal, Limousin lamb...) and freshwater fish, including trout, pike and pikeperch.
