Châlus is located to the south-west of Limoges, near the Dordogne border. It is one of Limousin’s gateway towns to the Périgord-Limousin Regional Nature Park. Châlus is also a « station verte » (France’s main Eco-labels) in the heart of La Châtaigneraie (known for its chestnut trees). It is an ideal spot for outdoor activities, such as cycling, which is possible along the “voie verte” trail from Châlus to Oradour-sur-Vayres. History lovers will enjoy learning about the Hundred Years war and how King Richard the Lionheart was mortally wounded right here in Châlus. The town is also part of the famous “Richard the Lionheart Trail”. Our Tourist Office also invites visitors to discover the other towns in the Châlus area: Bussière-Galant, Dournazac, Flavignac, Lavignac, Les Cars and Pageas.
