The route

Taking quiet country roads, this portion follows the tapestry route linking Aubusson to Felletin. This 42km stage, with its 463m of cumulative elevation, is relatively short, presenting few difficulties. All along the way, the cycle route is indicated by green and white signage.

Link to the Corrèze (18km, 233m cumulative elevation)

Consider the 18km link to the northern part of the county of Corrèze from the village of Royère de Vassivière, going via Faux la Montagne.

Don’t miss:

  • Royère de Vassivière: Centre International d’Art et du Paysage, a contemporary art centre on Vassivière Island.
  • Felletin: cradle of French tapestry-making, a town with a rich heritage.
  • Aubusson: with its major new tapestry centre, the Cité Internationale de la Tapisserie, beside the historic centre, this town is part of the association Les Plus Beaux Détours de France.

They did it!
