The Limousin/Auvergne region
The Limousin or 'French Lake District' is a beautiful area of France full of winding lanes, lakes, trees and lush green landscape. Nestled between the Charente and Dordogne, the temperature can reach 30C plus during the summer months with clear blue skies. The numerous rivers and lakes provide a whole range of water sports including sailing, canoeing, kayaking, wind surfing and water skiing. The region is ideal for walkers and anglers.
Limoges is the department's capital and has long been famous for its enamel and fine bone china production. Visit the local art galleries, churches, chateaux, museums, and numerous local markets selling local produce such as cheese, pate, oils, and honey to name but a few.
The Creuse is a picturesque region of France situated at the foot of the Massif Central. To the north in the department of Indre is Aigurande (approx 8km), a small town with several shops, a weekly market and a supermarket that will meet all your needs.
Gueret is the department capital town and here there are many restaurants and specialised shops. Eguzon is famous for its school of painting and its proximity to the 'three lakes'. The pretty village of Fresslines (7km) is famed for its local artists and exhibitions along with memories of Monet's famous visit to the region. See the ancient ruins of Crozant, a charming village overlooking a dramatic gorge and where you will find kayaking hire and boat trips along the Creuse river.
The wonderful town of Argenton-sur-Creuse is known as the Venice of the Berry and Abusson is world-renowned for its tapestries and carpets and is a lovely town on the river with narrow streets. Visit La Souterraine, a medieval town with Roman walls surrounding it. The Creuse also provides an opportunity to relax and enjoy the abundant wildlife as well as numerous outdoor activities. You will not be disappointed!

Thank you for the review and I note its comments. I have now asked the window cleaner to call every four weeks and not every six weeks as before.
Also I will, when next in France, supply the kitchen with a few more plates, glasses etc.
