Faux la Montagne

A village where life is good all year round !

The name’s origins are from the occitan faus which came from the latus fagus, which gave the name de lo fau (beech, beechwood, beech grove) a tree which was predominant of the first forestations.

Situated in mid-mountain in the Millevaches Regional Natural Park, it offers an open landscape mixing water and wood.

Maintaining the local shops and the creation of services stregthen the welcoming of new arrivals and the town’s energy where the cohesive and social momentum has been here for years.
