The Limousin region

Limousin is a land of lakes and mountains, valleys and forests, crashing rivers and traditional villages. It is one of the least populated regions in France.

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 more than eighty varieties of apple. Specialities like cherry clafoutis and pate de pomme de terre can be sampled throughout the region along with chestnuts, cepes, duck and fois gras. Numerous festivals in celebration of food are held throughout the year.

Limousin's cultural heritage combines with a rich religious and military past. Richard the First known as Lion Heart waged war in the region against Philip Augustus, king of France and there survives to this day many fine examples of castles, medieval churches and abbeys.

For enthusiasts of the outdoors the region is a gem. There is a range of activities available including walking, fishing, cycling, golf, canoeing and sailing. The region is heavily wooded and contains a massive network of rivers and lakes.
