Park of Millevaches

Natural regional park of Millevaches

The Creuse department is rich in its space. The Regional Natural Park of Millevaches in Limousin is located on the foothills of the Massif Central, straddling the departments of Corrèze, Creuse and Haute-Vienne…

A preserved nature, breathtaking panoramas!

The Millevaches Natural Park in Limousin covers 314,000 ha, between 400 and 1000 m in altitude. Made up of remarkable natural environments where peat bogs, moors, forests, meadows, it shelters sensitive animal species: otters, linottes, rare butterflies, pearl mussels,…

In all four seasons, it is a myriad of colours between the redheads in autumn, winter white, spring green and summer blue: “a true little Canada”. Water, in the form of lakes and springs, is omnipresent and even gives its name to the Park, that of the “Thousand Springs” derived from the Celtic “Thousand Vacuas”. With local resources in eco-friendly building materials (straw, hemp, wood), architects with expertise in this field and dynamic networks.

The Plateau de Millevaches is a place of the future for the market and the experimentation of eco-construction.

A territory of encounters

The Plateau de Millevaches has a very strong associative and cultural life (more than 1000 associations work in this area). A flowering of festivals and festivities sheltered in sites with a high heritage value makes an original contribution to cultural activities, particularly in summer. But some centres such as Vassivière, Eymoutiers, Felletin, Meymac also have a cultural activity outside the summer season, organising exhibitions, concerts, theatres, festivals… without forgetting the “Winter Bistros” which also animate the villages during the winter period.
And then on the gastronomic side, this area will also serve you good local products on a “Plateau” with even some recipe ideas thanks to the booklets “Aux saveurs de Millevaches”.

“In the Creuse, I am with nature, I live magical moments… I have an almost loving feeling for this territory: I love its curves, its softness, its simplicity, its exigence, its generosity!”
