The area I cover will be in and around Uzerche, since the 14th century known as the Pearl of the Limousin. This beautiful region offers lots of possibilities for recreation: fishing, hiking, mountain biking, parasailing, canoeing, horseback-riding, you name it. There are plenty of lakes for swimming, relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. Uzerche is a pretty village built in a curve of the Vézère-river. Like most surrounding villages, it is a lively town with a lot of activities and festivities all year round. Everyone knows about the numerous flea-markets (vide-greniers) and I always enjoy the Harvest fairs and exhibitions of old cars and working agricultural machines at the Auto-Retro. But my favorite evening-out is in Uzerche: the Friday-evening market of local products in July and August. There, you can buy the ingredients for supper and you are invited to prepare it on the BBQ’s and dine together in a pleasant atmosphere. Tip: bring your own plates, tablecloth etcetera for a colorful evening meal. Ofcourse, Uzerche has restaurants, a cinéma, an art gallery, a small gym and the former boys-lycée provides room for karate-classes and other activities. In winter you can find everything for celebrating Christmas at the Christmas-market in the renovated paper mill, called the Papetterie. These beautifully restored buildings are also used for exhibitions, musical performances and such. Tulle and Brive-la-Gaillarde are the bigger villages and are half an hour’s drive from Uzerche, Limoges, capital of the Limousin, is less than one hour. Last but not least…..The countryside. Only a stones throw away you can find yourself surrounded by a mix of woodland, pastures and fields with corn or grain, larded with little streams and ponds. There is Le Plateau de Millevaches, a Parc Régional, situated in the mountain-range Les Monédières with a variety of wild life and flowers. You will find Mont Dore, beautiful in summer for hiking and in winter (up until about March) for excellent skiing less than 2hrs. away! The Corrèze is rural in the best sense of the word: practically unspoiled. In other words…I love it here and I hope you will, too.
My name is Jet de Heer and I am a Leggett-agent since 2016. Although in Holland my husband was doing very well as a self-employed woodworker and I was working as a substitute-teacher, we decided to go for a less stressful life. Looking for more space, open views, better weather and tranquility, my family and me moved to France in 2013. The center of France was our most logical option: Not too far away from family and friends, calm but not desolated and a slower pace of living. After a long search, which started in the Dordogne, we have found our home three years ago in the Corrèze, in a nice community where we met all kinds of friendly Frenchmen, willing to help us in all kinds of ways. Now, after three years of living in France while getting used to the calm, relaxing way of life and becoming a part of our community, I felt it was time to share this great experience with others who are toying with the idea of living (partly) in France. That is where Leggett-Immobilier came in. I will do my best to find the property that suits you most, making a selection of properties with the help of your (specific) wishes and requirements.View Limousin Information Homepage
