Top 5 Charmhotel

1 - The Dordogne Valley

An historic heritage.

First and foremost, it's a journey back in time, where history has been unfolding for thousands of years. Indeed, the first humans left traces of their passage here, notably in the magnificent examples of cave art and prehistoric drawings that can still be admired today in the caves.

The region has continued to be exploited by man since then, as evidenced by its exceptional heritage: castles, churches, medieval villages, not forgetting five of the Most Beautiful Villages in France - Collonges-la-Rouge, Curemonte, Autoire, Carennac and Loubressac - and the sacred city of Rocamadour.

2 - Salers

"It's a medieval mountain town,
carved out of lava, in the heart of the Haut Pays,
and which, for a thousand years, has stood guard
over our mountains and Puys, an ever-present sentinel"

Arsène Vermenouze

3 - The Merle towers

Set in a landscape of forests and deep gorges, the town of Merle is a spectacular feudal complex of seven towers built between the 12th and 15th centuries, each belonging to a different lord.

A medieval castrum built on a rocky spur overlooking the River Maronne, the Tours de Merle are set in the hills and forests of the Xaintrie. They are a natural fortress in an authentic part of the Corrèze: the Xaintrie!

This historic site captures the imagination of visitors of all ages!

Classified as a Historic Monument since 1927, listed as a landscape monument, located in a Natura 2000 zone and of ecological interest for flora and fauna, the site is a treasure trove of history and nature.
