- All the charm of the Causse is here in this walk : dry pastures, little copses of oak, cazelles (dry stone huts), dry stone walls, farms with a sober beauty, the ruins of Taillefer castle and an unrivalled view over the Dordogne ! Made from the stone removed from fields to be cultivated, the dry stone constructions (so called because no mortar is used to build them) are a characteristic element of the Causse landscape. The many walls separating fields or gardens are built using a very special technique for placing and securing the stones. They sometimes incorporate "comptes-mouton" (gaps for counting sheep through), and special gaps to allow shepherds, water or small game to pass through.
