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.

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.

Delightful taste of rural France

5 of 5
Stayed 5 nights in this lovely property in a delightful part of France. The house has a modern kitchen and bathroom downstairs. Upstairs, the bedrooms have modern hand basins and bidets, otherwise everything else is authentically original which adds to the charm. Across the road is the owner's property complete with a very pleasant swimming pool. An added bonus for us was that the owner, Alain, was staying in his house. He is an absolute charmer and very helpful. The only possible downside is that there is only one toilet and it is downstairs. The nearby village is a couple of miles away and has butcher, baker and tabac , bar/cafe and a small convenience store for essentials.
