Other destinations[edit]

  • 1 Oradour-sur-Glane – a ghost village preserved for posterity as macabre reminder of when humanity fails. In June 1944, a squad of German soldiers razed the village to the ground, and murdered 642 men, women and children (almost the entire population), for no apparent reason other than they could. To this day, the "martyr village" remains abandoned, and is maintained as a national memorial and museum by the French state.


This region of France is very popular with expatriates from Holland, Belgium and England, with many owning second homes here.


French is the only language widely spoken in this area.

Get in[edit]

There are good road and rail links.

Limoges international airport receives many flights from Britain and France.

There is a project in place to extend the TGV line from Poitiers to Limoges.

This region is crossed by the A20 motorway, making it very accessible.

Get around[edit]

There are limited bus routes, therefore a car is required to get around. Cycling is possible especially since the roads are very empty.
