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!

                                                                Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Oradour sur Vayres. Le gite est vraiment très agréable, bien rénové, chaleureux, idéal pour 4 personnes. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le poêle à bois que nous avons utilisé un soir. Le jardin est parfait pour que les enfants puissent jouer et même faire du vélo. La propriétaire est charmante. Elle multiplie les attentions délicates (corbeille de fruits, thé, café, jus d'oranges et une bouteille de vin nous attendaient à notre arrivée). C'est un point de départ idéal pour visiter la région (la voie verte qui part d'Oradour sur Vayres, les nombreux étangs, le château de Chalus...) En résumé un week-end prolongé (4 jours, 3 nuits) apprécié de toute la famille. Les enfants sont prêts à y retourner !

                                                                A wonderful base for exploring Limousin

                                                                We have just enjoyed an amazing week in this thoughtfully converted stone barn. So many comforts to note - the beautiful open fireplace, quality kitchen appliances, downstairs wet room, shower cabinet, and tasteful furnishings. We were travelling with our two dogs, who adored the securely fenced garden. I have never seen them so settled away from home. We were welcomed warmly by our hostess with a bottle of wine and home-baked Madeira cake. It proved an ideal base for exploring the Limousin countryside, including Mont Gargan, Saint Paul, Uzerche, le village des martyrs at Oradour sur Glanes, and some western-style horse riding at Saint Sylvestre. It's very handy for Limoges, if you're flying rather than driving as we were. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this beautiful open plan accommodation but don't all book at once - we'd love to come back! Nous venons de passer une semaine fantastique à cette grange en pierre soigneusement converti. Tant de confort à noter - la belle cheminée, les appareils de cuisine qualité, chambre en bas humide, cabine de douche, et meublé de bon goût. Nous voyagions avec nos deux chiens, qui adoraient le jardin clôturée en toute sécurité. Nous avons été accueillis chaleureusement par notre hôtesse avec une bouteille de vin et un Madère gâteau cuit à la maison. Il a prouvé une base idéale pour explorer la campagne du Limousin, dont Mont Gargan, Saint Paul, Uzerche, Le Village des martyrs à Oradour-sur- Glanes, et une balade au cheval de style Western à Saint Sylvestre. Il est très pratique pour Limoges, si vous prenez l'avion plutôt que de conduire. Sans hésiter à recommander ce magnifique hébergement plan ouvert, mais s'il vous plaît ne pas tous les livres à la fois - nous serions ravis de revenir!

                                                                As a venue for a holiday with the whole family, the Chateau de Beaufort is hard to beat. We were 14 persons in total, and we all were comfortably lodged in very nice rooms. The house is very spacious and very cosy, we had the feeling of being in our very own maison thecampagne. Small problems were immediately taken care of by the very kind concierge couple Ernesto and Jacquie. The surroundings, the perfect quiet, the cast garden, the magnificent swimming pool, the vicinity of the baker's shop, the perfectly equipped kitchen... it all added up to our total satisfaction. We certainly recommend this place to our friends. And we are sure to come back the next time we want to spent a week together with our whole family.
