A warm welcome , leisure activities and discoveries abound in the canton of Corrèze. Set against Monédières , the canton rises in tiers from the Monatane Valley , upstream from the Gimel waterfalls, all the way too the view-point indicator at Suc au May ( altitude 908 metres).
The countryside retains its typical rural architecture; old fashioned hamlets and farmhouses with crow-step gables , small stone bridges , wayside crosses and communal bread ovens . In our region , the local inhabitants value the virtue of Friendliness , and you will find the people as welcoming as they are engaging .
It's one of the most typical "Valley Towns" in France , with a belt of outside boulevards leading to view-points from which you can gaze on the harmonious bends of the river Corrèze meandering between seven hills
An historic town , bridging the Limousin , Quercy and the Auvergne , it rises impressively from the banks of the River Dordogne . Its three landing stages , Quay side , its fine wooden galleries houses with stone slabbed roofs and Turrets , and its own river barge , bear witness both to its rich past and riverside lifestyle .
On the Banks of the River Dordogne, this is a charming medieval town, with its Romanesque Abbey, Tympanum and Treasure , old narrow side streets and half-timbered houses, and is also known as the "Limousin Rivera ".
"The pearl of the Limousin" stands at the heart of the picturesque valley of the river Vézère and is a town of great stature an rare beauty . To explore Uzerche on foot is to step back into time with its narrow little streets and intriguing little passages , Turrets and Towers and to coin the old French Saying " to own a house in Uzerche is to own a Castle in the Limousin".
