Emerging above the treetops, the roofs of Loubressac caress the blue of the sky in a harmonious blend of soft colours. A little brown, a touch of ochre, a streak of honey-gold… and in the centre, pointing skywards, the slate of the tower rising above the12th-16th C. church.

View from the hilltop

Perched atop a rocky promontory providing a wide-ranging view over the valleys of the Bave and the Dordogne, Loubressac has a very mediaeval feel to it. As you stroll around the lanes, you realise why the photographer Doisneau fell in love with the place. It's a sheer delight in summer to see the village lanes, balconies, steps and courtyards decked with flowers.
