Limousin Travel Guide in France

Lush green rolling countryside, with numerous hills and valleys, an abundance of woodland, wildlife including wild boar and deer plus lakes and rivers, which stretch out westwards from the Massif Centrale range of mountains, make this an idyllic setting for a peaceful holiday.

Limousin has plenty of space as it is one of the least populated areas of France and the fantastic scenery attracts many holiday makers, some of which have decided to settle in this region permanently, enthralled with the abundant countryside and fresh air.

Limousin Province of France

There are numerous important rivers in the Limousin such as the Dordogne, Vienne, Creuse and Cher and the region is well-known for the high-quality of its water and for offering first class fishing.

The Limousin region has a damper and milder climate than its neighbours, although summer temperatures often exceed 32 degrees Celsius but winters can often be long and cold, especially in the higher areas where snow is not uncommon.

Yet perhaps due to its rural character, the Limousin region has maintained its traditional music, with ancient instruments such as the bagpipe and hurdy-gurdy still remaining popular today.

Known affectionately as the land of a 1000 lakes and rivers, it actually has far more than this within the Limousin region and has become a very popular place to do carp fishing, cat fishing, pike fishing and course fishing.

Limoges, the capital of Limousin and in the Haute-Vienne department is the birthplace of Renoir and with its picture postcard scenery it is easy to see why the Haute-Vienne continues to attract artists, sculptors and painters today.

Did you know that the limousine car is named after the region because the inhabitants wore a hood with a profile perceived to be similar to that of the car!

There is so much to do in the Limousin region, from fishing to water sports, or for those of you who enjoy history, the many museums, quaint villages and monuments will keep you and your family occupied for the duration of your visit to France.
