We've put together a day trip to the Monédières. This massif, featured in the famous song "A nos Souvenirs" by the Correze-based group Les 3 Cafés Gourmands, is a veritable paradise for nature lovers. On the programme: unusual and secret heritage nuggets and a breath of fresh air.

Les Monédières

View from the Clédat rock


Let's start the day in one of the most unusual and secret places in the Terres de Corrèze: the abandoned village of ClédatA forest track (accessible by car) leads to the site. It's an unexpected, soothing and rejuvenating place where you can wander between chapels, thatched cottages, rocks and sculptures. It's a site steeped in mystery, that gives the impression of being inhabited by fairies and elves!
Visit Clédat by downloading a tour audioguide with the Wivisites application.

We then head for Pradines: the Tine waterfall is unveiled at a hiking in the heart of the forest: the ideal spot for great photos.

We continue on to Lestards, a small village that is home to the only church thatched roof in France. Let's continue on our way to Puy de la Monédière.

For lunch:

If the sun is shining, we suggest a picnic of local produce with a stop at the Lestards pass. You'll be able to enjoy the panoramic views while dining out. In the event of bad weather, why not try the doors of our restaurants for a hearty meal.

In the afternoon

Let's continue our day by getting a bit of height on our way to the summit of the Puy de La Monédière which rises to 919 metres and offers a breathtaking view of the Corrèze region. For the more adventurous, there are paragliding flights From the summit, you can experience exceptional moments of freedom as you fly over sublime landscapes.

Next we head to the Jaillants fanum, home to Gallo-Roman remains.

Let's end our day at the Monédières farm in the nearby commune of Chaumeil. During the picking season, this is the place to go for a wild blueberry tart.
