Limousin is one of the most beautiful unspoilt regions of France, an area of gentle rolling hills, woodland, valleys, rivers and lakes dotted with many picturesque towns and villages. A region heavily influenced by the medieval architecture of its many chateaux and churches. The stone houses have a simplicity of rural living with those special features that are so pleasing to the eye.
It is considered as the start of 'South West France' enjoying a climate of long hot summers and short sharp winters.
