Verdant and unspoilt, Limousin is a popular destination for lovers of the countryside and scenic walks, with its many forests, meadows, rivers and lakes. A land of rest and recuperation, this peaceful area also boasts a remarkable architectural and artistic heritage. Examples include Limoges, a City of Art and History, the picturesque villages of Collonges-la-Rouge, Mortemart and Turenne, the Romanesque collegiate church of Le Dorat, the castles of Boussac, Châlus-Chabrol, Crozant, Rochechouart and Villemonteix, as well as centuries-old traditions and skills like the celebrated Aubusson tapestry and the famous Limoges porcelain.
While the Millevaches plateau, Chabrières forest and Limousin mountains are particularly good for hiking, the lakes of Neuvic and Vassivière are perfect for relaxing or enjoying water sports. Plenty to ensure a wonderful countryside holiday!
