ABOUT THE AREA
Creuse is a department in central France named after the river Creuse. After Lozère, it is the second least populated department in France. It is bordered by Indre and Cher to the north, Allier and Puy-de-Dôme to the east, Corrèze to the south, and Haute-Vienne to the west.
Limousin is a sparsely populated historical region in south-central France. Mainly agricultural and covering part of the rugged Massif Central mountains, it’s known for beef farming and its distinctive Limousin cattle. Its principal city, Limoges, home to Gothic cathedral Saint-Étienne, has been producing fine porcelain since the 19th century. Thousands of pieces are on display at the Adrien Dubouché ceramics museum.
If is likely that you’ve heard of the Limousin as quite the place to head to if you are looking for a bargain home. Located in the hilly southwest of France, on the Massif Central, with around one third of the region covered in forests, several important rivers such as the Dordogne, Vienne, Creuse and Cher, over 3,000 lakes and steeped in history, the Limousin is a country-lover’s paradise. It also boasts several of the ‘Plus Beaux Villages de France’.
There are many remarkable tiny villages that hold historic interest and positively ooze peace and tranquillity. You can find the traceable pilgrim road of Santiago de Compostela. Pilgrims and templars alike sought food and shelter from the many abbeys and monasteries that lined the route.
The Limousin offers wonderful pastoral landscapes and wins visitors over with its simplicity and charm. A few of the key ‘exports’ from the Limousin include its world famous beef, the Aubusson tapestries woven from the wool of the sheep grazing in pastures of the Creuse, and the beautiful porcelain and enamels of Limoges.
