Choose Limousin Holiday Rentals and discover an often overlooked French holiday gem
A rural region of central France, Limousin's altitude makes it cooler and more rugged than some of its southern neighbours. Centred on the town of Limoges, the Limousin region is one of France's less visited regions, largely because its altitude makes it cooler and damper than some of its better known neighbours to the south. This should not put anyone off taking a trip to stay in Limousin holiday cottages though. Fewer visitors does mean that much of the region has remained true to itself, rather than attempting to cater for tourists. Anyone in search of an authentic taste of France should consider taking a trip to this central region.

One governmental area, or department, as they are known in France, is Correze. This department is centred upon the upper reaches of the Dordogne River, and is notable for the number of pretty villages and towns it contains. Guests in Limousin holiday rentals may want to see the walled town of Uzerche, while two villages generally regarded as being amongst the most attractive in France are Treignac and Ségur-le-Chateau. This department is among the more popular with visitors, largely as it easily accessible from the northern Dordogne and eastern Lot departments. The Haute-Viennes department is where the town of Limoges itself can be found. Visitors to Limousin holiday lettings will want to stroll around the Quartier Historique du Chateau, which is somewhat misnamed as there is no castle here. However, there are several historical buildings and an attractive covered market, made distinctive by its red brick markings and its blue tiles.

There is also grimmer history to be found here, at the village of Oradour-sur-Glane. There are actually two villages here, a modern one where people live, and one which has been left exactly as it was on June 10 1944, when the German SS murdered all the inhabitants and burned the village to the ground. This original village remains standing as a moving and silent memorial to the people who were so ruthlessly destroyed by the Nazis, possibly in retaliation for Resistance activity in the area. A less grim experience can be found at the quiet town of Aixe-sur-Vienne, which also offers access to the Perigord-Limousin National Park, where some of the wilder delights of the region can be encountered. Aubusson is another pretty town, known globally for its rugs and tapestries. With so many towns and villages to explore among the rolling countryside, a trip to Limousin holiday rentals is to be highly recommended. If you have a passion for learning about European history, why not consider a trip to Berlin Apartments and visit the many museums which teach visitors about life in divided Germany?
