The Limousin / Auvergne / Haute-Vienne region
The Limousin region is a land of upland pastures, forestry and pure water, springing from the region itself or just a little higher in the Massif Central. Waterfalls, springs and fountains, rivers and streams, flow into the Loire or south into the Garonne, irrigating the green fields and flowing through woodland and gorges…
The abundance of these natural staples explains the industries for which the region has made itself a name: Limousin beef (still eaten confidently due to its natural raising outdoors), wool, weaving and tapestry, oak barrel making and, from the pure kaolin supply, chinaware and enamelling.
The region’s three departments, Creuse, Correze and Haute Vienne, are ideal destinations for those in search of peace and quiet and unspoilt scenery: ramblers, riders, anglers, rock climbers, canoeists and other water sports fans.
Artists and art-lovers are also drawn here for similar reasons and because the Limousine has a serious share of museums dedicated to all epochs of art including the most contemporary.
If there are few large towns, the countryside is dotted with charming, authentic little villages and, the legacy of the ‘builder monks’ and the masons of the Creuse: castles, manors, Romanesque abbeys and churches, often concealing elaborate enamelled casks, finely wrought altar-pieces, frescoes and stained glass.
The region is of course world-renowned for the porcelain and enamels of Limoges and the tapestries of Aubusson and has been muse to many a painter, most famously perhaps the so-called Ecole de Crozant, the name covering all the painters inspired by the gorgeous gorges along the Creuse river. Many other contemporary applications of traditional decorative, arts, crafts and industries are still thriving, among them weaving, haute couture, pottery and goldsmithing.
