Romantic old town

The town of Tulle, capital of the Corrèze department of southern central France, is a delightfully romantic old town built on seven hills above the Corrèze River. Famous for the production of the finest of silk and lace fabrics, Tulle was also a great producer of accordions, and has a long established musical tradition.

Tulle's magical landscapes

Attractive and tranquil, Tulle stands in an area of outstanding and unspoiled natural beauty. The surrounding landscapes are nothing less than magical, with pretty villages, fields, forests, rivers and waterfalls, the whole forming one of the most unspoiled regions in all of France.

Gothic Cathedral

The town's cathedral, the Cathedral of Notre Dame, built in the 12th century in Gothic style, is a magnificent sight and certainly worth closer inspection. There is also an unusual museum which you may like to visit, as there is a fascinating collection of accordions there, alongside a lovely collection of watercolour paintings. For further culture, the town has a theatre which is aptly named the "Theatre of the Seven Hills".

Relax and enjoy

The town of Tulle is best enjoyed in a relaxed style, and there can be no better way to enjoy a romantic French town than with a romantic French meal in a romantic French restaurant! Tulle has plenty of these, so keep an eye out as you wander the quaint little streets of the old town and remember the names and addresses of the restaurants which take your eye. No matter which you choose, you are assured a delicious meal in delightful surroundings.

Shops galore

Shopping too is a very pleasant experience here in the town. Tulle has more than its fair share of interesting Broccante and curiosity shops to enjoy, and especially intriguing are the accordion and fabric shops which echo the town's history and traditions. As with any city, you can find supermarkets and all amenities in or near the town.

Out and about

The area around Tulle is rich in history and interest, so don't confine yourself to the city limits. Visit the tragic memorial town of Oradour-sur-Glane, which echoes the terrible reprisal killings carried out in Tulle itself, only on an even larger and more terrible scale. On a lighter note, get out and about to enjoy the sporting opportunities offered by the wonderful Corrèze countryside, with fishing, climbing, walking, cycling, swimming, horse-riding and golf available along with many more! Visit the pretty village of Brive-la-Gaillard, or simply drive around the area and choose your own favourite corners of this beautiful part of France.
