In the Corrèze we like nothing better than getting together to
watch a rugby match, the king of sports in the region, stroll
around the Book Fair in Brive, head for a local strawberry or
blueberry fair, or attend one of the numerous concerts and
festivals held throughout the year.

Marvel at a fortified castle, or perhaps an

the Tours de Merle to the otters hiding

there’s a whole new world awaiting
discovery!
