Recommended circuits and itineraries

What’s more pleasant than to be guided on your arrival in an unknown village or corner of France? Unknown, but not for long. Let yourself be guided by recommended circuits and itineraries.

From Limoges, discover the four corners of the département. At your own pace. Car, bike and camping car, organise you day or break. 

Whether travelling by car, bike or camping car the Haute-Vienne opens itself up to you. Lovers of back roads or a desire to roam, we can recommend day or half-day circuits.
