Fancy stepping back in time? The Limousin is France as it was 50 years ago. The Limousin is in central-southwestern France, north of the Dordogne and west of the Massif Central. It comprises three departments (Creuse, Corrèze and Haute-Vienne) – all distinctly rural in character – and falls under the administrative region of Nouvelle Aquitaine.
Limousin is both a cultural and historical area. The Limousin offers wonderful pastoral landscapes and wins visitors over with its simplicity and charm.
Limousin is one of the best-kept secrets for great value property in France. It is predominantly an agricultural area, so there are many barns or empty properties available for conversion projects. There are mainly rural houses in this region, such as half-timbered and manor houses all full of character.
Limoges is the main airport and Brive-Souillac also receives flights from London City and Paris. TGV trains operate from Paris to Limoges and you can get a direct ticket to Limoges from London via the Eurostar.
