The Corrèze is located at the south of the Massif Central. The department is quiet and green and has a lot of beautiful views and authentic villages. There are numerous lakes, rivers, waterfalls and forests with beautiful paths to walk on. The campsite is situated along the river the Dordogne, between the villiages Argentat and Beaulieu. It’s very quiet and calm. If you do hear anything, then it probably will be the mooning of the Limousin cows, the flowing river or a lost waterfall.
Everywhere in the countryside are picturesque castles and picturesque villages labeled as “les plus beaux villages de France”.
