The head in the stars!

Starry sky

The Regional Natural Park of Millevaches in Limousin is recognized International Starry Sky Reserve (RICE).

We can from our home observe the Milky Way, a rare opportunity!

As such,the Regional Natural Park of Millevaches in Limousin obtained on November 30 the label International Reserve of Starry Skies (RICE) by the International Dark-sky Association (IDA). In France, only three other territories are concerned.


Different actions are planned, with the aim of preserving, (re)discovering and amplifying our “night” resource, including in the field of tourism.

Our activity is based on nature tourism, the calm and freshness of this preserved space.
Soon, sky observation sites called “Under the Stars” will emerge to ensure the best possible experience of observing the starry sky.

Lovers of nocturnal atmospheres, please feel free to share this celestial information.
