Eat well

Often, it is around the table that links are forged, we are proud to share our gastronomy, a cross between influences from the South-West, Limousin and Auvergne. Our many restaurants will allow you to experience this promise, often with proposals for all tastes and for all dietary requirements (without meat for example). Local farms pay great attention to preserving the reputation of the quality of their production. They rely on peasant mixed farming and the breeding of emblematic products of great renown. More and more of our farmers are adopting very reasoned practices or converting to "organic", which reassures us in the confidence we place in foods from Corrèze, Périgord or Quercy. So, here, choose market products, not ultra-processed ones! Just visit one of the many weekly markets like the one of Brive-La-Gaillarde to get an idea of ​​the richness of our local products. And if you want to buy with no carbon footprint, we give you addresses of producers whom you can buy directly from. Buying local products means supporting local producers and limiting your carbon footprint by reducing transport. It’s a win-win, right?

Soft mobility

Unforgettable holidays without too much carbon, yes it’s possible, it’s slow tourism! If you go green, it's to reconnect with nature and take the time to discover a territory.

Meeting the Gaillards

Throughout your meetings, you will also see that hospitality inhabits us, deeply rooted in our curiosity for visitors... Open-mindedness and the pleasure of sharing are also part of the foundations of sustainable development. Committed to promoting exchanges, Brive Tourisme has created the PoHtes (tourist hospitality points). These are local players (bakery, café, press, etc.) who welcome you “at home” and give you advice on how to discover their territory, their secret corners.... Our natives, like real gaillards, have a generous personnality and some offer to share all their knowledge during enlightened visits: the Musta'chut. During the summer period, they offer free visits with varied themes: local flora and fauna, know-how, small heritage, etc.
