•3 medieval, award winning “Prettiest villages in France”: Segur le Chateau, St. Robert and Collonges-la- Rouge. They feature medieval houses, cobbled streets and breath-taking riverside scenery.
•Gimel-les-cascades – a hillside village from which you can take walks past fast-flowing waterfalls (largest tumbles 45m)

Lubersac is approximately 4 miles drive from the Cottage. It is a charming village with a tourist information office, 2 restaurants, 2 bakers, 2 chemists, 2 large supermarkets including a 24 hour petrol station and 2 bars. A well maintained open air swimming pool open to the public in the summer is signposted from the village square. Also on the square is a newsagent that sells European and US national newspapers (The Telegraph, Daily Mail, Tribune...). The best market days are Sunday morning for Objat market (25 mins drive) or Saturday morning for Brive (30 mins drive). You will find a colourful and interesting array of local truffles, duck products, live chickens and pets, herbs, cheeses, clothes and shoes at these markets. The nearest lake for swimming is a 20 minute drive at Vigeois - it has a sandy beach, diving boards, pedalos, snack hut and trees that offer shade. It is ideal for small children because the water is shallow and calm. Lifeguards are also in operation. You could also visit Treignac (45 minute drive) which has a small children's playground in addition to the facilities at Vigeois. Lake Vassiviere is great for all watersports and a further 10 minute drive after Treignac. As you tour the local area, look out for signs advertising open-air public barbeques and dances in the local villages. They are great fun and provide a cultural experience of French rural life.
