The Limousin/Auvergne region
Located on the Haute Vienne/Dordogne/Charente borders, and the famous 'Richard the Lionheart Route', this beautiful rural region is rich in historic sites, attractions and activities.
There are many large lakes, numerous châteaux, quaint villages and larger historical towns and cities to explore. Throughout the year there are many markets and fetes to visit with night markets in St Mathieu.
The surrounding region offers the best that nature can give, from the contrasting seasons, to the abundance of wildlife, fresh air, and the peace and quiet still found in rural France. The nearby lakes at Videix 6km, Massignac 7km, and St.Mathieu 7km have sandy beaches, safe swimming, boating and wind surfing. This part of the Haute-Vienne is also a protected area due to it being situated within the boundaries of the Perigord-Limousin Natural Park, and so for walkers, cyclists, artists, fishermen and bird watchers, it's quite simply breathtaking.
If you are looking for a lovely restaurant with scrummy food then we recommend the L'Auberge du Presbytere at Saint Barthelemy.
Les Salles Lavauguyon
St Mathieu has many local amenities including a large well equipped supermarket, restaurants/bars, newsagent/tobacconist, two bakeries, pharmacy, post office and a bank!
Les Salles Lavauguyon is situated in rural south west France, between the two cities of Angouleme to the west and Limoges to the east. This small tranquil village can be found nestling within the Haute-Vienne region of the Limousin, and on the perimeter of the 'Pays de la Meteorite', where 200 million years previously, the landscape had been created by the impact of a huge meteorite. Les Salles Lavauguyon and it's two neighbouring hamlets of Lavauguyon and Raverlat, together form the 'Circuit of devotion' where you will find natural springs that rise within their midst, and which from Celtic times are said to have healing properties. Centuries old folklore still exist today, and both Water Diviners and Healers can still be found practicing their crafts with some amazing results. It's within this circuit that evidence of our ancestors from the Neolithic and Roman periods can still be found.
In addition to the church and priory, the remains of a ruined 12th century castle still stands. Originally built on a medieval fort signs of it's destruction after the revolution in 1789 can be found within the hamlets in the shape of granite stones and ornate masonry within the walls, windows and doorways of old farmhouses and barns, but now after decades of neglect, a brave effort is under way in an attempt to rescue it from total oblivion.
