The Vézère valley

The Vézère valley is incredibly rich, with no fewer than 14 UNESCO World Heritage sites along its banks. If you enjoy hiking, there are footpaths all along its course, and from Marquay you can reach Saint Amand-de-Coly, for example, listed as one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in France” thanks to its magnificent fortified church.

The Vézère valley is also home to many prehistoric remains, with an impressive concentration around the village of Les Eyzies (National Prehistory Museum, Font de Gaume and Combarelles caves, Abri Pataud site, etc.).

Finally, a visit to Limeuil, Saint Amand-de-Coly and Saint Léon-sur-Vézère, all three of which have been awarded the “Most Beautiful Villages in France” label, will immerse you in a state of tranquillity as you stroll through the steep streets of one of these medieval villages.
