About this location
The Limousin region
The Limousin region, whilst less than four hours drive south from Paris, is nonetheless largely unexplored by visitors from overseas. To the French this area, which is the lake district at the heart of France, is one of their best kept secrets and a great holiday favorite for them.
We are 30 minutes drive from the city of Limoges, its main-line station and Bellegarde Airport. Limoges is a wonderful city to explore, with many fine restaurants, excellent shopping facilities and a wealth of delightful galleries, museums and local outlets for the famous Limoges pottery.
In addition to the many fine, reasonably priced restaurants in the area, there are many sporting activities in the region, including horse riding, fishing, golf, swimming (indoor and out) and canoeing.
There are 1400 Miles of waterways and 9 large lakes in the area.
Limoges Bellegarde Airport links to the UK via Stansted, Liverpool and Southampton and the flying time is under one and a half hours after take off.
THE HAUTE VIENNE
The Haute Vienne (87) is the least industrialized region of France and it is famous for vast expanses of Chestnut and Oak forests, pleasant villages and large lakes. There is a wide range of outdoor activities and a diverse variety of wildlife in the area and the area has now been designated as part of France's newest Parc Regionale.
Whilst the area provides the perfect setting for a summer holiday it is also particularly beautiful in the spring and autumn, when the changing colours of the seasons are a photographers dream and the weather can be very pleasant for walking and cycling.
The capital of the Haute-Vienne is Limoges, this is a very attractive city famous for it's porcelain. There are also 10 Castles in this department alone, museum of varying descriptions, archaeological sites, 8 major lakes and 2 theme parks.
The attractions of the other departments of Limousin, namely, Correze (19) and Creuse (23) are within easy reach as are neighbouring Charente (16) & The Dordogne (24).

"Quaint little French village!"
Quiet little village outside of Limoges. This property was very comfortable will all the bits and pieces required for a long or short stay. Chris is extremely helpful with local shops and spots of interest. Be aware that there is a cleaning fee but even once you factor that in it is good value for your money!
