Covering around 60 km², the Monédières Massif is one of the seven landscape entities attached to the Millevaches Regional Nature Park in Limousin. This unspoilt granite territory is located in the foothills of the Massif Central, in the south-west of the famous Millevaches plateau. Its dry moorlands are a Natura 2000 listed area, meaning that they are an exceptional site for flora and fauna. At the Puy de la Monédière, the Suc au May and Freysselines cirque in the municipality of Chaumeil, you can admire the typical moorland plant life, made up of heather, broom and gorse, as well as wild blueberry bushes, mountain arnica and yellow gentian. When it comes to animal life, you might be lucky enough to see a short-toed snake eagle, woodlark, European nightjar, Montagu's harrier or green lizard…

An ideal place for a hike, the Monédières massif encompasses around thirty puys (mountains with rounded profiles), the highest of which is La Monédière, whose highest point is 919 metres above sea level. The massif's second highest point, the unmissable Puy du Suc au May, offers superb views of the Monédières, the Millevaches plateau and the Auvergne mountains from its orientation table at 908 metres above sea level. An exceptional viewpoint, accessible in five minutes' walk from the car park below. The most daring visitors will make the most of the nearby take-off site to try their hand at paragliding!
