Meymac (Occitan: Maismac) is a commune in the department of Corrèze, in central France.


During the Hundred Years' War it was pillaged by Rodrigo de Villandrando.


The commune lies just south of the Millevaches Plateau and northwest of the Cantal mountains.

The Luzège has its source in the northern part of the commune; it flows south through the middle of the commune and crosses the town.

The Triouzoune forms most of the commune's eastern boundary.
