Spring edition 2021

Welcome to the Spring edition of ‘For You’

In this edition, our spotlight shifts slightly and refocuses on the Limousin and the area around the city of Limoges. Rural Limousin is a landscape of rolling countryside and agriculture contrasted with an upland forested area and dissected by many river valleys. Tranquillity, open space and freedom all spring to mind as you tour this charming region that has played such an important part in France’s long and often dramatic history.

We meet a Dutch couple who decided to take the leap and emigrate to France and the local area; we explore the old Roman city of Limoges, now perhaps best known for its porcelain pottery; we visit a renovated farmhouse with a lot more potential for someone who is looking for a future income stream, and we take a trip into the kitchen to make one of the famous desserts that adorn the region’s tables.
