The medieval cachet of Saint-Robert's heritage is what makes this picturesque little Corrèze village so charming. Chosen as the location for a famous TV show, "Des grives aux loups", adapted from a novel by Claude Michelet, Saint-Robert will take you back in time, with its fortified doors, typical narrow streets and old lords' houses made from masonry stone, like the Noailles pavilion. Perched on a hill in the Yssandonnais, on the borders of Limousin and Périgord, this characterful place is listed as one of France's most beautiful villages. You can also take a look at its 12th-century church, the remains of a Benedictine priory whose choir and transept are a reminder of the Romanesque era. Inside there are sculpted capitals as well as a wooden Christ dating back to the 13th century. Near the church, be sure to stop by the Philippe Ranoux garden. It offers beautiful views of the green countryside all around!

If you have the chance to visit the village in summer, don't miss L'Été Musical de Saint-Robert, a classical music festival in July and August, where chamber music, vocal music and world music all come together.
