Things to do on holiday in Haute Vienne, France

Despite being landlocked in the centre of France, a rural gite in Haute Vienne has access to some stunning beaches. The man made Lake of Vassiviere was created in 1950, and has kept the Haute Vienne accommodation rentals in the area busy ever since. There are not only a huge range of water sports available but also vast expanses of beaches to relax and sunbathe on. The area is crossed by a massive number of walking trails and cycling routes, through the most beautiful and serene countryside in the region.

The Parc Naturel Regional Perigird-Limousin is a beautiful rural area, where local crafts like chestnut woodworking are encouraged and are once again thriving. The park organises many family holiday orientated activities, from nature walks to festivals and workshops.

This was an area which has a great association with Richard the Lionheart, and the corridor of medieval villages (Saint-Robert, Segur-le-Chateau), castles (Coussac-Bonneval, Chateau Monbrun), and charming churches bear witness to this.

There are a number of unique events to be enjoyed from a rural gite in Haute Vienne. The last weekend of August sees the annual tractor racing finals arrive in St Junien, and the velo-rail de Bussiere Galant is open during July and August.

This was our second stay with David and Jenny at Chabrenas. The first time we visited David was in the process of building La Bergerie and it was such a labour of love that we vowed to return one day and spend time there. We were not disappointed. This gite has everything you could possibly wish for. Luxury accommodation in a truly tranquil setting with access to a fabulous pool that is a real bonus. The Porters are fabulous hosts, always available whenever you need them but never intrusive.Their suggestions for places to visit and especially places to eat really enhanced our stay. We fell in love with Brive - a fantastic historical town of great character. We even managed to take in a pre-season friendly match involving the towns rugby team which was most enjoyable. Lazy days spent soaking up the sun, catching up on some reading, eating and drinking, laughing and joking. Many happy memories. We would highly recommend this property to anyone.

A luxurious homely barn conversion with loads of equipment for families. Bikes, pool, goals, trampoline, basket ball! Wonderful space with relaxing field views. Laid back area where EVERYTHING is closed after 12pm on a Sunday (so be aware if you arrive on a Sunday) but that way of life is very relaxing. Middle of the countryside and next to a working farm. We had a great holiday here.
