Our tip Dip your feet at the Pont du Saillant

Under the medieval Saillant bridge, flows the peaceful Vézère. It's hot, how can you resist the urge to dip your feet in it? Once refreshed, go to the Saillant chapel in Voutezac, you will be surprised. Its apparent simplicity does not suggest anything about the beauty of its stained glass windows. “ There is Chagall in these nuances », would say a connoisseur. Bingo! The five stained glass windows in the small chapel are the work of the master himself.
