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!

Places to holiday in Limousin, France

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

Summer temperatures in Limousin often reach over 32°C, sometimes even soaring to 40°C, and staying in a Limousin holiday rental will expose you to 2000 hours of sun per year. However, the winters are long, and snow is not uncommon, as Limousin is mainly an upland area.

Everything still very clean, very comfortable and very peaceful. The weather was a bit against us (it was Autumn/early Winter !!!!), but despite this we still managed to explore and experience new and different areas. People everywhere very friendly, and roads very “early Sunday morning ish” !! Still plenty of good restaurants within easy driving distance. Must try and visit in the spring/early summer next time.

We enjoyed the fishing very much and the surroundings were beautiful with the Autumn colours, the wildlife and the lake views. After a day fishing in the sometimes, cold and wet weather, it was great to go back to the warm and comfortable farmhouse.. We look forward to returning next year.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We knew from the photos on the website that this property would be amazing; little did we know that what you see on the website is only half the story. The house itself is cavernous and handsomely furnished. When we arrived it was spotlessly clean. The layout is extremely versatile - we stayed as two families (one with grandma in tow!) and there was the flexibility for our families to almost have their own zone of the house, as well as ample choice of bathrooms! Downstairs the kitchen is fantastically well-equipped; we love cooking and found everything we needed - a rarity in our experience! There is also the option to cook outside, which we did as the weather was so warm. In terms of eating areas, again, you are spoilt for choice: the kitchen; the dining table in the entrance hall; the table in the main living area or, our favourite, alfresco, with the most amazing views. So, how to pass the time? We could have spent every day lazing on the deck - reading books in the hammocks and plunging into the pool for a cool down. There was certainly enough to keep the children occupied. However, I am glad that we decided to explore the local area - it did not disappoint! We spent most days at Lac Vassiviere - about 15 minutes' drive from the house. We stopped at several of the different beaches, all of which were great ways to spend a day. The children enjoyed the play areas and the beach. They spent hours swimming in the safe swimming designated zones, which were life-guarded. It was bliss to be able to read a book safe in the knowledge that the children were supervised. At each of these beaches there were places to buy food and drink - fantastic pizzas at one. We also took a trip to the island on the lake via the small train (a water taxi is also an option) to see the sculpture park - well worth a visit. The children really enjoyed their trip to Arbre en Arbre - similar to 'Go Ape' in the UK, but a lot cheaper and a lot better. It is worth checking the opening times (particularly at the end of the season). All in all we cannot recommend this property or area enough. We plan to return to continue exploring this hidden gem.
