Medieval village in High-Auvergne


Pleaux is a remarkable starting point to discover the Low-Limousin and the High-Auvergne. Following its soul one will launch in a hike on the crest of the Puys or else make quiet stroll in Corréze to discover pretty manors; to visit Salers, one of the most beautiful village of France or the fantastic Tours de Merle. Nostalgic places as ruins of Branzac or the chapel of St Christophe will charm poets and artists. Lover of the nature will be able to follow paths lost in deep beeches or oaks forest. ..

Nature and popular art

  • The forest house of Miers (24 km), opened from July to August at 11am to 19am. Beautiful exhibition presenting the life of the forest and its actors. Path of discovery. Tel.:
  • Cascade of Salins, some 8 kms to Mauriac, a path leads to a fall of the Auze 30 meters high, the cascade of Salins. At its feet, near a cave, flows the fountain of Druides.
  • Monumental cross, cross of stone that line paths of the High- Auvergne constitutes an aspect of the popular art in the region. During your hikes you will meet some inevitably, on Pleaux and in a ray of ten kilometers I have counted some more 70.
