The Haute-Vienne department (87) is a part of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine province, as are its sister departments, Creuse (23) and Corrèze (19). Apart from its world-renowned porcelain industry, Limoges is also celebrated for its lively atmosphere and covered market. The Centre of France and Limousin are not amongst the most-visited tourist sites, but Haute-Vienne has a multitude of things to offer visitors, apart from the red-brown cows which are typical of the region. You can see them on the wooded hills next to the green fields, eating the lush grass – a guarantee of the best meat.
Haute-Vienne is a real paradise for walkers, hikers and cyclists. Also mountainbikers (all levels) and motorcyclists will find their favorite tracks while enjoying the scenery. Whether you want to take a walk nearby or you like to make a full day of it, we will gladly help you to prepare for your trip. Your bicycles and motorbikes will be well protected in our secure garage.
Water sports and sun
Limousin has countless lakes and clear streams and is a delight for fishermen, swimmers and all other watersporters. Fabulous lakes are: Lac de Mondon of 15 hectares is only eight kilometres away from us, L’étang de la Chaume (photo) of 46 hectares is 20km away and the bigger Lac de Saint Pardoux (330 hectares) is 40km away.
