Rich lands of Limargue

Between the arid and stony Causse de Gramat and the green Ségala, the Limargue reveals itself. A narrow strip of land that rarely exceeds 10 kilometers in width, the Limargue is characterized by its soils of limestone, marl, soft clay and sometimes sandstone. Today it is a fertile land that seems to hesitate between the dry plateaus of the Causses and the chestnut woods of the Segala. The opulence of its medieval villages coexists with its landscapes of agricultural fields, rounded hills, and open dales.

Take a stroll

on the paths

Numerous hiking trails are available to discover the Limargue region. You can then take the time to admire the natural meadows delimited by living hedges, to climb on the wooded slopes dominated by pedunculate oaks, to see the beginning of the chestnut forests that announce the transition with the Segala. A 100% nourishing moment!
