The Limousin region and its capital, Limoges, are called in reference to the Gallic people of the Lemovices who once occupied the region. Located in the North-West of the Massif Central, it is composed of three departments: Creuse, Corrèze and Haute-Vienne. All three are large playgrounds suitable for outdoor activities. Indeed, their rich natural heritage, where rivers, plateaus, lakes, valleys, peat bogs, forests, granitic massifs and pastures are located, make them perfect settings for nature sports. Let yourself be tempted by a hike on the Millevaches plateau. Surrounded by green landscapes, you can take a breath of fresh air and recharge your batteries during family holidays. The greenways, hiking trails and marked trails can be explored on foot, on horseback, on pony or by bike! This beautiful region has a lot of water bodies and many rivers have their source there. Why not take the opportunity to experience water activities such as pedal boats, water skiing, windsurfing or stand up paddle, offered by the water sports centres? Lake Vassivière, Lake Saint-Pardoux or Lake Causse will welcome you with pleasure. In the countryside and in a green setting, take advantage of your holidays in Corrèze to have a picnic with friends by the lake! Children will be delighted to slide on the water slides of the region's great lakes. And if you prefer calm and serenity, you have two options: an afternoon around the lake, while fishing, or climbing up to the top and rubbing shoulders with the clouds, for the duration of a hot air balloon flight. The view is breathtaking over the preserved natural spaces and foothills of the Massif Central. To spend a relaxing holiday, keep your children busy by offering them fun outdoor activities: miniature golf, archery, tree climbing, treasure hunting or a race in a giant labyrinth! The region's leisure centres will be pleased to welcome you! Multiple accommodations are possible in the region: rental of mobile homes, wooden cottages, cottages and guest rooms or even caravans and yurts. There is plenty to spend an unforgettable holiday in a preserved natural setting! The Millevaches Regional Nature Park, located around the plateau of the same name, sometimes even known as the "Limousin Mountain", has very beautiful hiking trails. Otters, which have become very rare in France, have found refuge in this green setting where they are protected. But Limousin also has many historical sites that will delight architecture lovers during their stay in the region: the Merle towers, the castle of Ventadour or the Saint-Etienne de Limoges cathedral. If it is raining, why not visit the various museums in the area, such as the museums dedicated to the craft heritage (porcelain, tapestry, gloves or tiles) or the Limousin aquarium? Animal lovers can visit the Reynou zoo park or the Monts de Guéret zoo, while history lovers will prefer to visit a place full of emotions: Oradour-sur-Glane. Come and discover the many facets of the Limousin region by trying the different outdoor activities on offer!
