The region is impregnated by its medieval history sung by the troubadours. The castle of Moustier-Ventadour, on which Égletons depended, was a very important creative center of courtly love or Fin' Amor, recited by these lyrical poets between the 12th and 13th centuries. Bernart de Ventadour, one of the greatest French troubadours, is a native of Ventadour, perhaps even the son of Viscount Ebles II de Ventadour.
If you want to enjoy a beach area, go to the lake of Égletons, which has received the Blue Flag of Europe label. Swimming is supervised every afternoon (except Mondays) in the summer and children can enjoy themselves in peace: play areas and a beach soccer field are available for them.
