The Millevaches Regional Nature Park and its 14 Natura 2000 labelled sites

Located on the watershed of the Adour-Garonne and Loire-Brittany basins, the territory of the Regional Natural Park (PNR) has thousands of springs and rivers (Vézère, Creuse, Corrèze, Vienne...) and shelters remarkable natural environments where peat bogs, moors, forests and meadows alternate. The Longeyroux peat bog, 15 km northwest of Meymac, is an exceptional reservoir of biodiversity. The NRP is home to fragile and unique animal and plant species: otters, pearl mussels, wetland azure, linnet, white-tailed eagle, viviparous lizard... It is also a stopover for migratory birds. There are 12 species of birds, including the red-backed shrike, the European nightjar, the woodlark, the grey crane... The flora offers a great diversity: heather moors, sphagnum mosses or droseras are only some examples. A dense forest in deciduous or coniferous trees composes a heterogeneous landscape. A discovery not to be missed and surprising.

Peat bog of Longeyroux

A biological environment of major European interest, this peat bog lies at an altitude of 900m in the communes of Meymac, St Merd-les-Oussines, Chavanac and St Sulpice-les-Bois. It occupies a huge 250ha depression, where numerous springs and streams merge to form the Vézère.

Ruines gallo-romaines des Cars

The archaeological site of Les Cars is one of the most remarkable ancient sites in the Limousin. Between moors and forests, on the Plateau de Millevaches, granite blocks whisper to us a history that is almost 2000 years old. It takes us on the trail of these Gallo-Romans who came to settle in the lands of Haute-Corrèze in the 2nd century A.D. But who were they? How did they live here? Clues are hidden in the thousand-year-old stones in front of you: here is the plan of a villa crossed by water, there are large mausoleums emerging from the chaos... Your imagination runs wild, your archaeologist's soul awakens. To guide you through this journey back in time, mediators are present on site all summer, not far from a small sunny terrace.

This site was rediscovered by Marius Vazeilles at the beginning of the 20th century. The archaeological pieces of the site can be discovered at the Musée d'Archéologie et du Patrimoine Marius Vazeilles in Meymac.
