Correze holiday rental gites - houses Correze

Corrèze is a department in south central France, named after the Corrèze River. The department is part of the region of Limousin. Tulle is the capital of the Corrèze and Brive-la-Gaillarde the largest city - both destination s are well worth visiting when staying in a Correze holiday rental gite or house, France.

Corrèze offers visitors a rural retreat and the chance to enjoy some splendid, unspoilt countryside. There are over 5000 kms of rivers, most notably the Dordogne river and the Vézrère river, which run through the Corrèze department. Another 40 lakes guarantee that water activities are very popular, from canoeing and kayaking to a quiet spot of fishing. When taking a holiday rental property in Correze, canoeing especially is a very lovely way to quietly appreciate the countryside and small villages that line the rivers.

To the north lies the Haute-Corrèze region, with the Plateau de Millevaches and the Massif de Monedieres. The landscape of moorlands, forests and peat bogs has a charm of its own when you rent a self-catering holiday home in the Corrèze. The towns and villages to visit in this part of the department include the interesting and attractive villages of Treignac and Segur-le-Chateau and the walled town of Uzerche. 

The centre of the Corrèze is where most of the more sizable towns are found. These include Brive-la-Gaillarde, Tulle, Egletons and Meymac. The south of the Corrèze borders with the Lot and Dordogne departments to the south-west. The countryside here is very scenic, with woodlands and small fields, numerous pretty medieval villages, and the upper reaches of the Dordogne. Be sure to visit the cluster of three 'most beautiful villages of France' including Turenne and Collonges-la-Rouge and Curemonte. There is also breathtaking scenery along the Dordogne river to the north-east of Argentat at the 'Gorges de la Dordogne'. The village of Donzenac is also to the south-west of Corrèze.

Some other places worth a visit during your stay in the Corrèze include the Cascades de Gimel - the spectacular waterfalls to the north east of Tulle drop 143m into Inferno Gorg. Then there is the Stud Farm at Chateau de Pompadour - visit one of France's best-known stud farms first built by Louis XV in 1761. Be sure not to miss Colonges-la-Rouge - with pink sandstone houses and fairy tale turrets. Finally there are the spectacular views at Turenne - 360-degree views of the Cantal mountains and the Dordogne valley from the top of the 11th century Tower of Caesar in Turenne.
