You will find a lot to see and do in the area you could follow the route of Richard the Lionheart, visit Oradour-sur-glane, the martyr village, or you may like to walk or cycle around the Monts de Blond. In high season you can swim in the lakes with man made beaches at Cieux or Lac St.Pardoux with life guard surveillance. Then there is the pretty village of Mortemart less than 2km away where you can linger over lunch or a drink ,and marvel at the dwellings from Jean Jaques café If you enjoy golf there is a course 3km away. Bellac has a swimming pool and supermarkets and Limoges is a must for the fine porcelain and Aquarium.There are many markets ,brocantes and depot ventes to search through, if you like looking for bargains, maybe a french bed or armoire.
Why not sit by the lake with a glass of wine whilst you decide. Your hosts Phil and Lyn who renovated the accommodation will be happy to help with questions about living in France or putting you in touch with experts who can help if you are house hunting and/or renovating.
