Make a holiday rental cottage or villa in Limousin your home away from home

Limousin is considered one of the best-kept secrets in France. A stunning rural region filled with lakes, rolling valleys and forested mountains crossed by fish filled rivers. The tiny hamlets and villages conceal treasures of French rural life, and some of the finest rural cottages and gites in Limousin. Taking any of the Limousin holiday accommodation available will ensure you enjoy a relaxing and tranquil holiday surrounded by fabulous scenery, wildlife and the diverse rural cultures of 'real' France.

Things to do in Limousin, France

The landscape of Limousin has a long history, from the pre-historic to the Romans, and the heather strewn moorlands were the inspiration for many of Monet's famous paintings. There are a huge number of important sites and town's in France's history, from Limoges, the porcelain centre with the towering cathedral, to Bourganeuf, the centre of the Templa Knights, and from the remains of the city gates in La Southerraine to Chalus, where Richard the Lionheart was fatally wounded.

For food lovers, there is plenty to fill a self catering Limousin holiday rental. Limousin specialises in sheep and the Limousin cattle bred in the region. Fish from the mountain streams and the fruit and mushrooms from the miles of forests and fruit plantations mean that there are plenty of local delicacies to experiment with in a self catering Limousin cottage, not to mention the cheese and gateaux famous in Limousin.

Limousin is a rural area, and therefore there is no end of fabulous walking, cycling and horse riding options. From a Limousin holiday property you also have the flexibility to take a kayak on one of the Mountain Rivers, white water raft or fish along the peaceful banks of the streams and lakes.

There are also a great variety of golf courses available in Limousin. Taking a Limousin gite or holiday cottage will let you enjoy the nine golf courses in Limousin, all of which are open to visitors all year round.

From a Limousin property, you can also enjoy hot air ballooning or tackling the world's largest maze of Le Labyrinthe, which holds within its magnitude of paths a number of clues to help you, and giant games to occupy you when you get lost!

The region is split into three departments, Correze, Haute-Vienne and Creuse. The tapestry museum in Aubusson is a huge attraction in Creuse, and has helped it become a major tourist centre. It is highly rural, covered in forestry, with Limousin holiday properties sparse, but idyllic.

Weather in Limousin, France

It is such a lovely place to stay, rural, quiet so peaceful and there is a restaurant just down the road. The gite is excellent, everything you can think of has been provided, and it has been renovated to such a high standard, the top room is beautiful. It was a magical time for our family, a fantastic break away. I would definitely recommend to others, and cant wait to go back... Well done guys and thanks again for a lovely stay and treating us like family. Scott & Hayley Barber

An ideal, quiet location and easy to get to some very interesting towns nearby. Brantome and Perigeux especially recommended. Secure, off-road parking. Good kitchen and bathroom, plenty of heating if needed, the only thing lacking was drawer space. Wicker baskets were provided but not that easy to access. Would certainly recommend to other guests looking for somewhere peaceful to stay.
