Limousin covers three areas – we are in south-west Creuse between Bourganeuf and Peyrat-le-Chateau, bordering Haute Vienne. Corrèze is to the south.
Montayaud is in the commune of St Junien la Brégère, near Bourganeuf in Creuse, Limousin. The area is ideal for relaxing breaks as well as walking and fishing holidays, with beautiful scenery right on your doorstep. Montayaud is also on the pilgrim route of ‘Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle’, which runs through to Spain.
The sandy beaches of Lac de Vassivière, Lac Ste Hélène and Lac St Julien le Petit are just 20 minutes away. Dogs are allowed on the grass at St Julien le Petit, even during the summer.
With its unspoilt countryside and ample lakes, Limousin remains one of France’s best-kept secrets. It’s ideal for walking holidays, fishing, water sports, bird-watching, cycling or simply relaxing.
Limousin was at the heart of the French resistance during the second world war, and the village of Oradour-sur-Glane to the west of Limoges has been left untouched as a permanent memorial.
The area is rich in arts and crafts – Limoges is renowned for porcelain and enamel, whilst Aubusson is famed for its tapestries and custom-made carpets.
The pretty medieval town of St Leonard de Noblat and the market town of Eymoutiers, from where you can catch the train to Limoges, both make for a pleasant afternoon out.
For something quite different, try Le Labyrinthe, the world’s largest maze at Gueret, which also has picnic areas and a giant chess board.
