Haute Vienne Holidays

Think of Limoges, the capital of Limousin and the department of Haute-Vienne, and most will picture the world famous porcelain manufactured there after a deposit of fine white clay was discovered nearby in the mid 18th century. Yet in the Middle Ages, Limoges was already renowned for its enamels and at various times, gold, quartz, copper and uranium have all been mined in the vicinity. Today, this centre of the decorative arts is a major university town hosting an important September festival of writers and musicians, a must for culture-vultures on holiday here.
