Uzerche - in a stunning location

The beautiful town of Uzerche sits in one of the Corrèze's most stunning locations. It sits like a princely island, high on a elevated rocky spur above a loop in the River Vezere, and looks down onto the lush panorama of the tree strewn, green Limousin countryside. With its fine old granite buildings and air of elegance, the old town is well worth a visit, and with its reasonable prices, it is certainly a potential property hotspot for discerning buyers. It comes as no surprise to know that the town is sometimes called "The pearl of the Limousin".

Tranquil and charming

Cross the river by the pretty old stone bridge, the Pont Turgot, and begin to climb your way through the ancient twisting streets to the top of the town. Don't rush though, as you will miss the sights of interest along the way. Grand old granite built houses, some half-timbered in the mediaeval fashion, straggle up the hill and flank the narrow alleyways of Uzerche, making this one of the most characterful destinations in the region.

Points of interest

The town's main points of interest are the Romanesque Church of St Pierre and the gateway to the town, the Porte Bécharie, which was once part of the surrounding walls.

Shops and services

Actually, it's better than that, as Uzerche has some lovely shops, such as artisan bakers and local speciality shops as well as supermarkets and all normal services. There are also plenty of good eateries, with friendly cafés, bars and restaurants all at your service.
