Experience

Experience what the Limousin has on offer, its lifestyle and its inhabitants.

Besides the regular markets, there are also many special markets such as flea markets or other car boot sales (vide-grenier), farmers’ markets with only local made products or foods.

Experiencing Limousin also means eating in one of the many restaurants dotted around the area. Almost every village has a restaurant. Food is very important to the locals.

Because people often eat in a restaurant, quality standards are high, hence you can have an all inclusive lunch menu including a glass of wine for about 15 euros.
