Hiking Trails :
Discovering the Village: 1.5km
This very short walk is designed to help you discover the heart of the village and its curiosities: the Old Presbytery de la Bazinie, the old prison or "Prévôté" whose foundations date from the 13th century, the 12th-century church which harbours a relic of Saint Eutrope, the covered market hall, the former convent which was in reality a girls' school in the 19th century, the façades of ancient houses…

Hillside Circular Walk: 6.8km
This walk takes you to the east of the village, across fields and through woods. You walk past the Tuilerie des Rocques, an old tile factory which was operational until the mid-nineteenth century and then, on leaving the woods, you get a lovely and rather unusual view of Chateau de Lanquais before walking right past it just after the hamlet of Bournazel.

Tithe Barn

A 'Watery'Circular Walk: 11 km
On this walk, you go past the Grange (barn) and the Chateau. At Bouyssou you are at the highest point of the commune before heading back down towards the Monsac road, where you can take a break by the source and the Grand Fond wash house. A few hundred meters further on, head into the woods and go past the Lac Noir… with all its legends. On leaving the woods, you will go past the Moulin de la Forêt before following round the side of the lake.
