Who are we?

The Greeters® are locals in love with their territory. Each Greet is free, unique, authentic and friendly! They volunteer to welcome visitors. These locals share the time of a walk, their passions and their favorite places as they would with their friends. Indeed, a Greeter is not a professional guide. It welcomes visitors to its living environment and explains it with passion

The Greeters concept aims to create an exchange between locals and visitors. The inhabitants become welcoming in their own right. Greeters reinvent the sense of hospitality with walks based on encounter and sharing.

Today, a dozen local Greeters offer you several themes for walks: Nature & Environment, History & Culture and active discoveries. The walks last about 2 hours and are carried out for up to 6 people.

This offer is only available on demand and subject to the availability of our volunteers. Please note that a booking request is required, recommended at least one week in advance!

Are you hesitating to become Vézère Valley Greeters? If each inhabitant offers his vision of the territory, then there are 38,000 different ways to discover the Vézère Valley, offer us yours! Transmit your passion for your territory, let curious visitors discover it in a different way for a meeting!

The establishment of our Greeters network® Vézère Valley is recent. Today, it brings together 10 passionate inhabitants who are proud to discover their place of life. The team is being formed, our network can grow and all volunteer residents are welcome. See you soon!

What do our visitors say after a walk in the Vézère Valley with a greeter

March 2019
Une visite prévue pour durer deux heures, j’ai eu la chance de pouvoir accompagner Franck sur l’après midi dans son activité de feuillardier, un vrai bonheur. Ils m’ont permis de découvrir deux activités, la permaculture et le feuillard, que je ne connaissais pas. J’y retournerai quand le potager sera en activité.

We put Stephane at the right place and time, walked around the old town and heard about Annecy’s interesting history and present. The walk was spiced with football and modern scalptuer, and was very enjoyable. Thank you Stephane?
