Tourist sites near the Gineste holiday village

During your stay in our holiday village, we recommend visits to the neighboring departments.

The city of Rocamadour installed on the edge of a cliff on a rock in the Lot department is a must. The medieval village made up of many religious remains such as the Notre Dame chapel and its statue of the Black Madonna will be ideal for a family visit. At night, Rocamadour puts on his light clothes, you will take magnificent pictures and memories.

Near the citadel, several tourist sites will delight young and old: the monkey forest, the Eagle Rock, the Caves of Almost, the Grammat animal park without forgetting the famous Gouffre de Padirac. (1h15 from the holiday village)

The Gouffre de Padirac is the first underground site in France. At more than 100 meters deep you will sail on a river in a “breathtaking” setting. We advise you to prepare your visit and to book your tickets in advance, in summer season the crowds are very important.

On the Corrèze side, we recommend a visit to the Tours de Merle. This medieval city set on rocks in the heart of unspoiled nature gathers vestiges of fortresses built from the 12th century. In the summer season, several activities are offered, especially for children: medieval games, puzzles, discovery of nature. (40 minutes from the holiday village)
