Loubressac

The village of Loubressac sits not far from Carennac in a dominant position high on a rocky outcrop overlooking the river Bave and, in the distance, the valley of the Dordogne. A picturesque medieval village with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside including the valley of the Dordogne and the château of Castelnau-Bretenoux.

From the grassy village centre, the entry to the old village is via a stone gateway. A relaxing walk through the narrow streets takes you to the tiny church, built in the 14th and 16th centuries, and past houses built in the llimestone of the causse, beautifully preserved and restored.

The 15th century manor house (with the best views over the valley) is privately owned and sits behind a magnificent renaissance doorway and high walls.

Restaurants and shops: Hotel/restaurant, general store, and gift shops and cafes open in summer.
