Cycling In The Haute-Vienne (87)
Nestled in the heart of France, the Haute-Vienne is one of the most rural and unspoilt regions of the country.
Lush green countryside is a nature lovers dream, with rolling hills leading to vast lakes and waterfalls, along with out of the way gems to discover.
At its centre, the city of fire, Limoges renowned for its porcelain, stained glass and intricate enamelling is waiting to be explored.
It is possible to follow in the footsteps of Richard the Lionheart, tracking his well documented links to the region, and what better way to do so than by bicycle.
