About this location
The Limousin region
Land of lakes and mountains, valleys and forests, crashing rivers and traditional villages. Made up of three departments Creuse, Correze and Haute Vienne, it is one of the least populated regions in France.
Limousin derives its name from the town of Limoges in the Haute Vienne, capital of the 'Fire arts,” porcelain, stained glass and enamel.
The region attracts those who enjoy a range of activities including walking, fishing, cycling, golf, canoeing and sailing.
The local gastronomy can be found in the markets and fairs that take place in many of the villages. There are plenty of flavours to savour with numerous festivals in celebration of food being held throughout the year.
For enthusiasts of the outdoors and wildlife the region is a gem. It is heavily wooded and contains a massive network of rivers and lakes. Track and maybe catch sight of fallow deer, fox, red squirrel and if you're lucky wild boar. Summer sunshine brings out some beautiful butterflies and moths and for bird lovers summer visitors include the exotic looking Hoopoe and the glorious Golden Oriole.
