Domaine de Romefort lies just five minutes from the medieval pilgrimage site of St Leonard de Noblat. This town, as well as Domaine de Romefort, is located on the centuries-old pilgrimage route that runs between St Jacques de Compostella (Spain) and Rome. The origin of the word Romefort comes from “Romaeus” and “fort” - a solid and secure (Roman) place for the protection of pilgrims. It was along many of these pilgrimage routes that “Romeforts” arose.
Domaine de Romefort is situated in the department of Haute Vienne (just above the Dordogne) and is 20 kilometers from the city of Limoges. This is an ideal place for hikers as well as for families who love nature and are looking for a place to hold a family reunion. Domaine de Romefort is an old farm that has been transformed into 11 luxurious cottages.
The swimming pool of more than 100 square meters, built after the summer of 2008, represents the best way to cool off during the warm summers.
