Bienvenue to Limoges, the potter’s paradise set on the banks of the Vienne. Breeze through Southampton airport to Limoges and destination dining awaits, as does a history rich in art – Renoir was born here – and of course the finest French china and enamelware synonymous with the Limoges name.

Once a Roman city, Limoges has a compact and walkable centre with a pretty historic quarter of half-timbered houses, art museums and galleries. Explore the Gothic Cathedral and shop for porcelain on the Boulevard Louis Blanc, picnic in the pretty parks by the river, catch the little tourist train. In Limoges, even the actual train station is a mesmerising sight. 

Head out of the city and you’re in an area of outstanding natural beauty - the Limousin. Find the trail of Richard the Lionheart, or take a rod and hunker down to catch dinner, the trout streams are bursting with this tasty freshwater fish. Famous for its beef cattle, Limousin takes its food very seriously, so settle in to the region’s gastronomy and tuck in to a slice of life in Limoges.
