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.

On arrival we were met by Lisa and Andy who showed us around, The gite was fab, being February Andy had lit the log fire and it was warm and cosy Mmmmmm, also unexpected but welcoming was a welcome pack very thoughtful, Lisa and Andy knew we were looking for houses and had got us some estate agent cards, we would recommend this gite to anybody and would tell anyone who was going to France to check in here very very good. Thank you to both of you. Lisa & Andy
