Meyssac is a village and commune in the Correze département of Limousin region. The town of Meyssac centres on its Church, and other architectural treasures surround it; dotted around in its little streets. Until 1738 the fortified town of Meyssac belonged to the Viscount of Turenne. The fortifications and the moat were built to protect its inhabitants from looters. In the 18th Century, these fortifications became nothing more than useless ruins and were destroyed. They were replaced by a large boulevard which later became a sort of ‘ring-road’. Beautiful houses with gothic interiors and red stone exteriors remain in between this new construction and the old town. There are lots of sites to visit, including the Church of Saint Vincent, and various markets. Local leisure activities include horse-riding, kayaking, fishing, tennis, hiking, and many more. Meyssac is located just 1 hour from Perigueux airport with daily low cost flights to the UK.
