History

A unique, new property built in the traditional French style, with many energy saving features.

From Terrasson-Lavilledieu to Limeuil where the Vézère meets the Dordogne, the river runs through one of the most beautiful regions of Périgord. This first stage will take you from Terrasson to St Amand de Coly. You will notably discover the old town of Terrasson built around its abbey overlooking the Vézère as well as the gardens of the imagination which dominate the old town. Further on, the path climbs along a cliff where the chapel of St Sour appears, it is in these rocks that the hermit Sorus came to settle. After the mineral causse of Terrasson, the path ventures into the woods and runs along the coly, a stream with fresh waters which comes out of a resurgence (the source of La Doux) known for its longest siphon in France. This stream gave its name to the village crossed before arriving at St Amand de Coly, a village classified among the most beautiful villages in France.
