    • Uzerche is installed on the banks of the Vézère, nestled in a meander of the river. It is estimated that its occupation dates back to the Gallic era, probably due to its strategic location. You will walk there to discover its Saint-Pierre Abbey, enthroned at the top of the city, watchtower of the landscapes. Its architectural style is pure, Romanesque with an octagonal bell tower with finesse. Uzerche is adorned with beautiful residences, looking like small châtelets with towers, which can be discovered by walking through its cobbled streets. Many craftsmen have taken up residence in Uzerche, making the walk pleasant through the workshops and shops. Stroll towards the eco-district of the old paper mill, renovated by an architect, where you can discover art in all its forms, even urban! It is a very beautiful place of cultural expression. Uzerche is part of the Most Beautiful Detours of France, but it is also an interesting place to put down your suitcases and explore the surroundings. In summer, Uzerche animates its auditorium with concerts and other events. For a walk, consult or pick up the Uzerche heritage map at the tourist office. 2 routes allow you to visit the city at your own pace and in the footsteps of Simone de Beauvoir, writer who was inspired by these peaceful landscapes in her childhood. A 4km circuit is dedicated to it.


      To see around Uzerche:

      • If you like beautiful gardens, come and take a walk in the Arboretum Al Gaulhia managed by an association which also organizes events around nature education and the environment. It is a place of tranquility, in Espartignac, 10ha of greenery and a pond covered with lotuses in the season favorable to their development. The plants present come from the 5 continents, biodiversity reigns supreme. Aquatic plants, bamboos, remarkable trees and animals live in harmony for the happiness of walkers. Ideal in the heart of summer!
      • 5km away, in the direction of Saint-Ybard, Bialet Waterfall are sublime! Thanks to a small family hike of 7km, you will go through pretty landscapes, small bridges, until you see small waterfalls. A picturesque place, take something for a picnic at the village grocery store before leaving! A Tèrra Aventura course allows you to discover the place by geocaching.
      • 17km to the north, for swimming from Uzerche, is the Forges lake. It houses a fitness trail, water games and inflatables on the water in the summer season. A very nice place to relax and refresh.
      • Vigeois is a nice little village to discover during a half-day walk, you will see a 12th century Abbey Church, an old bridge that spans the Vézère, the Pont des Anglais, but this is not is not the oldest thing in the village… a remarkable tree (a If) of, it is said 1400 years, is just behind the abbey. To relax, the Poncharal Lake is nearby: swimming, water games and nautical activities.
