For family holidays or breaks just for two, stay at a charming character holiday cottage in Limousin. This is a peaceful and tranquil rural location and a wonderful area for walking, fishing, cycling, watersports and bird-watching. Lake Vassiviere has all these plus 6 sandy beaches and a large island complete with chateau. There is plenty to see and do in Limousin from Crusader castles, caves, museums and the velo-rail at Bussiere-Galant to pony trekking, go-karting and canoeing. Limoges is a delightful city and renowned for its beautiful porcelain. Whilst there, head to the daily covered market where you can try the local cheeses and cider made with Limousin apples.
