Walkers Paradise

Winter Lake

There are four seasons to explore the Millevaches Regional Nature Park on foot and each season has something to offer. The ambitious randonneur might take on the trail around Lac de Vassivière (all 29 km of it). Good news - in Summer you can cheat by taking a water taxi and snip a bit off the total trail. For at least 3 months of the year you can cool sore feet in the clear water of the lake or even take a dip!

My favourite season has to be the Winter. I just love having the whole place to myself and that's what you get especially when it's cold. Nice to come home to a roaring log fire too.

Spring's my close second. There is virtually no intensive farming or agro-chemical use here so as a result the wild flowers are simply stunning.

We have a good range of maps and guides for guests to borrow and I am gradually putting walking routes online.

So pack your boots, camera and rambling spirit and join us in this walkers paradise.
