Limosin is a region in central France. It is in the very centre of France; major cities in the region include Limoges, Tulle, and Gueret. Overall it is a very rural region of France; you’ll see a lot of agriculture, cattle and sheep farming, and a regeneration of foresting. Limousin is also well-known for its enamelware. You can visit both an enamelware factory and the Adrien Dubouché ceramics museum, dedicated to the porcelain art. If you’re a fan of rugs, the Aubusson factory in Aubusson is an interesting place to visit for the textile history.
The easiest way to get to the Limousin is to fly to Limoges from either Paris or the UK. However, that isn’t the cheapest; the most inexpensive way to get here is by train from anywhere around France or the UK. You will likely have to change trains along the way. To get around the region, you should probably hire a car; you can do this at the Limoges airport.
Hostels in the Limousin can be found in the main city of Limoges or in its environs. Outside of the city, hostels cater to hikers as well as backpackers but you might find them difficult to get to without your own transport. Hostels in the remote regions will cater to trekkers and hikers as well as off-the-beaten-track backpackers.
The region has long been inhabited. It was first settled by the Lemovices tribe (from whom it took its name) but fell under Roman rule in the early 1st century AD. As a Merovingian and Carolingian region, it had important monasteries but it was fought over by rival kings. It continued to be fought over as the English fought for control in France; under Henry the II and Eleanor of Aquitane, it became an English territory, then went back and forth between the two countries for the next four hundred (or so) years.
Some of the highlights in the Limousin region include the Crypt of Saint Martial, the Cathedral Saint-Etienne de Limoges, a beautiful Gothic-style cathedral in Limoges which took over six hundred years to construct, and the remains of the amphitheatre. Limousin is also one of the best places in France to hike, sail, kayak or canoe. As an adventurous traveller, though, you will find plenty to do!
