Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine 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.

The region, located in the middle of France is renowned for the mild climate and on average receives 1,974. hours of sunshine each year. The gentle climate helps to create a charming landscape.

Bussiere-Poitevine

“Rest”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2016

On opening the front door we were welcomed with an array of goodies and practical bibs and bobs that said hello and enjoy. We had visited twice before over 4 years ago under different ownership, and, wow what an improvement. Well done Yvonne and Mark. The gite certainly has had an uplift. The quaint terrace at the back was a welcome treasure to eat and drink on overlooking the lake. The village is literally 30 minutes walk away to the cafe. In the other direction is a smart pizza restaurant that serves beautiful wine, coffee and a range of keen priced meals in a wonderful setting that is only 10 minutes walk away. I thought it couldn't get any better, and then I started fishing for a couple of hours and caught 4 double figured carp. With all this around to do, sample and taste we could find nothing wrong for a couple who wanted peace, life and food with in easy walking distance, and accommodation/facilities to rest or break up the day.
