The best time to discover the Causse lake, It’s at the end of the day, at sunset. For what ? For its calm, its colors, the change of scenery a quarter of an hour from the city and all that for nothing. Refreshing and surprising!

We left Brive-la-Gaillarde and got rid of city life. After only 15 minutes of driving, we arrive in the town of Lissac. And there: surprise! A 360° view of Lake Causse, renamed “ Cité Gaillarde seaside resort ". A privileged place for practicing different water sports, we often have the chance to see rowers on their boat.rowing, fishermen or children on sailboats.

It takes at least an hour to enjoy the peace, take a short walk and wait quietly for the sun to set. At that moment, the place changes its face and colors. The reflections on the water, the view of the village of Chasteaux a little higher up: a real moment of change of scenery!
