Buying and living in Limousin part of Nouvelle-Aquitaine

Looking for an area with ground level property prices but a sky-high quality of life – welcome to Limousin Welcome to Limousin


Rural France doesn’t come better than this, a fact not lost on generations of second-home owners, and those looking to escape the rat-race. Limousin is the least populated area of France, and is dominated by rolling farmlands, lakes and forests . Expect to find markets dominated by fresh, seasonal produce, and village bars where the locals are a better source of important news than any social media feed. Beautiful properties are as abundant as the fields and meadows – from a stone barn to renovate, to a glorious chateau, there’s something for everyone.

Transport and Access

Limoges-Bellegarde airport is incredibly popular with UK travellers. British Airways, Easyjet and Ryanair all use it, with flights to Gatwick, Stansted and five other UK cities.

Limoges also has excellent rail links to Paris, Bordeaux, Toulouse and Lyon. The A20 motorway leads directly to Paris (northbound) and Toulouse (southbound), whilst the A89 connects to Bordeaux. There are much more scenic routes to all these destinations though – why not take your foot off the accelerator, you are in Limousin after all.

The market

For an in-depth analysis, read our latest Nouvelle Aquitaine market comment (below), which includes average prices in all the major towns and cities.

Last year, prices rose between 5-6% in all four departments, which is exceptional for the area. The Limousin is renowned for its stable property market, and sharp rises/falls are uncommon. It is a popular holiday home area for both French and International buyers, due to the exceptional value for money on offer. The most noticeable trend last year was the increase in American buyers at the 150-250,000 euro price range, as they took advantage of the strong dollar. At the top end of the market, enquiries for chateaux are almost entirely from the UK, no doubt stimulated by the popular Channel 4 series Escape to the Chateau (https://www.channel4.com/programmes/escape-to-the-chateau) and Escape to the Chateau DIY (https://www.channel4.com/programmes/escape-to-the-chateau-diy)

The beautiful city of Limoges. Don’t make the mistake of thinking it is all about the airport – take time to explore the historic centre, and particularly the wonderful Gothic cathedral. We also defy you to leave without picking up a few pieces of porcelain, renowned throughout the world for gracing the tables of kings, queens, presidents and emperors. Outside of the city there are a plethora of national parks, forests, lakes and rivers to explore. Try the vast Parque natural regional de Millevaches en Limousin and you will never want to leave. If you can’t find romance in this beautiful, unspoilt, area then perhaps the country life is not for you!

    Limousin :

    Limousin, is made up of four departments and is renowned for its picturesque landscapes and unique architectural heritage. The region boasts a range of local building materials, including granite, sandstone, and limestone, which have been used to create a variety of distinctive house styles for centuries.

    One of the most prevalent types of homes in Limousin is the traditional, stone-built, house, which is commonly found in rural areas. These homes are constructed from local granite and sandstone, and are characterised by their thick walls, small windows, and steeply pitched roofs. The use of local materials ensures that these homes blend in seamlessly with the surrounding countryside.

    Limousin is also home to a range of grand chateaux and manor houses, which often feature ornate detailing and intricate stonework. Many of these majestic buildings were constructed using locally sourced limestone, which has a distinctive pale colour which is particularly attractive in the French sunshine.

    In addition to traditional styles, the region also offers a range of modern homes that make use of local materials like wood and stone. These homes often feature large windows and open-plan living spaces that take advantage of the natural light and countryside views.
