Carennac is a small medieval village on the bank of the Dordogne river, a place steeped in history where old houses cluster round a castle (where Fenelon is said to have written his "Télémaque") a part Romanesque, part flamboyant Gothic cloister, and a church with a beautiful tympanum, and an amazing 15th century Entombment.




"  More than other part of the earth, I enjoy this happy place which delights my eyes"

Fénelon, Ode à Carennac
