The Limousin is stunningly beautiful region of still lakes, fast flowing streams, gentle rolling valleys and forested mountains has been one of the best kept secrets in France. From the lovely old city of Limoges to the tiny hamlets scattered across the hills and forests, and the pure rivers and lakes, discover the friendliness and old world charm of one of the last remaining havens of the 'real France'.
As one of the lowest populated regions in France, the Limousin has largely escaped the onward march of 'progress' and retains some of the most unspoilt countryside in Europe.The Limousin is a region rich in history.. Dotted everywhere in the region you will find 12th. century churches, chateaux, cathedrals and awe inspiring architecture -a legacy of the mason farmers of the region - renowned throughout France and recent and sobering history at Oradour sur Glane, an entire town preserved in memory of its destruction and the execution of its inhabitants by a German panzer division in WWII.
The culture of the region remains largely intact, as does the traditional warmth of its people. Always welcoming to visitors and still retaining old fashioned courtesy and values. Village fetes abound, many of them dating back centuries and celebrating just about everything imaginable.
A visit to the Limousin is a little like walking back in time - understated, empty roads, full of surprises and sure to resurrect memories of what life used to be like in a less frantic world.
Haute Vienne derives its name from the river that runs though the department. Limoges famous for its porcelain is the regional capital. Here you can find a myriad of interesting shops as well as all the high street chains.

Further a field the department is the breathtakingly moving town of Oradour sur Glane, a permanent memorial to man's inhumanity to man.
There are over 2,000 km of marked paths for walking and rambling, The Haute Vienne is an angler's dream with both running and still waters plentiful in rivers, lakes and ponds, there are around 7,000 km of waterways, of which 6,700 km are 1st class.
Dournazac is a small village in the Haute-Vienne department of the Limousin region of south-west France which is notable for its beautiful 15th century castle, Château Montbrun.
