Meymac lies in the heart of the Millevaches region of the Correze. Here, you will be surrounded by the most stunning forests and breathtaking scenery. Eating out at lunchtime is cheap, paying around 13.5 euros (2016) for a 3 course meal. Meymac has a little tourist office next to the fountain and there is always something going on at the weekend. Pick up a free guide at the office.
If you love the outdoors, you can take a stroll or a bike ride around Sechemailles lake. You can easily get there on foot from the town centre, by car it takes just a few minutes. There is a beach and picnic areas for families and plenty of free parking.
In the summer time, there's supervised water sports on the lake but if that's not your thing, sit back, relax and enjoy the view at the beautiful waterside restaurant.
If horses are your thing, there's a pony club opposite the lake and in winter you can easily access family ski slopes at Le Mont Dore.
There are several, typically French bars in Meymac, plus everything else you need all within walking distance, supermarkets, bank, petrol station, tabac etc. Watch out though for odd opening times in France. Many places are closed on Mondays.
There is also tons of cultural heritage to explore and the 13th Century Benedictine Abbey boasts Meymac's recently restored, Black Maddona.
