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. Its size, unusual landscapes and the diversity of its flora and fauna make the Tourbière du Longeyroux one of the natural gems of the Plateau de Millevaches.


Two paths allow visitors access to the peat bog. A booklet providing information on the two waymarked paths and the bog is available from Haute Corrèze Tourist Offices in Meymac and Bugeat (1€).

Its bell tower houses a multifoiled doorway decorated in typical Limousin style and adorned with old Romanesque capitals. The church also houses a 12C Black Madonna, similar in style to the Auvergne Madonna statues.
