Limousin

The Limousin is a very green region and is located in the northwestern part of the Massif Central. It is one of the smallest regions in France. Between the green of the woods and forests many rivers are meandering. But there are also plenty of lakes and ponds : Lacs de Vassivière, Bort lesOrgues , Neuvic.

The Limousin region is divided into three departments, Haute Vienne (87), Creuse (23) and Limousin (19). The Limousin is named after the ancient capital of Limoges. Rolling hills, dense forests and many lakes with beaches. But also beautiful historic towns and picturesque villages. The region is sparsely populated and few tourists come here.
There is particularly rich bird-life to be seen in the natural park of the Brenne. The region has some splendid cities like Bourges and Poitiers..
