With a total area of 6,541 square miles, the modern region of Limousin is a part of the new administrative territory Nouvelle-Aquitaine and is composed of two historical French provinces- Limousin (the old province) and Marche. The region is well-known for its high quality of water and offers first-rate fishing. It is crossed by three major rivers: the Vienne, the Dordogne, and the Charente. Limousin is one of the traditional provinces of France, its name is derived from a Celtic tribe, the Lemovices, who had a major site in the area. The region’s economy is essentially agricultural, well-known for its herds of cattle and oak orchards, used to make Cognac barrels. Until the 16th Century, the official language of Limousin was Occitan, and is still spoke by some of the population. Limoges, in Limousin, is one of the most visited locations in the region, with its own University, major sports teams (Basketball, Handball, Football, Rugby etc), and main railway station. The nearest airport is Limoges-Bellegarde Airport, which offers internal French flights and UK flights only, perfect for travelling home or going further afield in France.
The symbol of Limousin is a chestnut, and they have been an important part of the regions traditionally gastronomy. They were the ingredients for many meals and have been used to feed pigs. The most famous local dessert is a ‘clafoutis’, a thick flan-based cake with black cherries, however there have been many variations, using apples, peaches, pears or plums instead. The Limousin region, being located inland in the middle of France, is known for its mild and sweet weather throughout the year. Being surround by mountains means there are very cold winters, and occasionally strong rainfall, but the area can boast 2000 hours of sunshine each year, similar to French departments further south. The region provides France with 25% of its gold production, and 50% of its uranium. It is known as the ‘France profonde’, meaning ‘heartland of France’.
