The day continues with a well-deserved meal - bon appétit!
Let's continue the day by following in the footsteps of one of the most powerful seigneurial families in medieval Limousin: Les Comborn.
About fifteen kilometres from Pompadour, in the commune of Orgnac-Sur-Vézère, lies the Comborn castlethe stronghold of the family of the same name. The building overlooks the Vézère gorges from a rocky outcrop.
During the summer, the owner offers guided tours of this historic site (on reservation).
Stop off in the small village of Orgnac-Sur-Vézère. Push open the doors of the church to discover the contemporary stained glass windows created by Father Kim En Joong.
Get back in the car and head for La Chartreuse de Glandier (follow the signs for Troche). Once there, take the path that runs alongside the canal des chartreux. This shady walk offers a view of one of the region's most remarkable architectural sites: The Glandier Charterhouse. This building was constructed in the early 13th century by Archambaud VI, Viscount of Comborn.
To round off this first day in style, how about an evening stroll around the racecourse?
