Hi Anthony,

If you are interested in horses visit Arnac Pompadour, its natioal stud and a nice city.

Farther, go to Uzerche, the pearl of Limousin.

Ah, ok.

I was thinking of somewhere like the Parc Raynaud near Limoges. It's like an animal park, less formal than a zoo and great for the family to spend a few hours walking around. It's near the Carrefour at Boisseuil.

I agree about Limoges. We had to pick someone up from the airport and decided to do an overnight stay. What a wonderful surprise, beautiful city. The porcelain museum is stunning, but maybe a bit muich for a 21 month-old!

If you want to avoid big cities, try the Château d'Excideuil. You won't be disappointed!

Spot on Chris. Limoges is a great place to wile away some time. It's doable with a pushchair too. there are some lovely gardens with fountains around the cathedral with bars etc on hand. The museum next to the cathedral is brilliant and free !

The railway staions is superb and well worth a visit just for the architecture. Over the road is the Champ de Mars with gardens and fountains.

The city centre is quite user-friendly too - loads of plaes to explore with bars etc everywhere.

Hi, thank you for your replies, we have one problem our transport is an 8 mtr Motorhome, we have had trouble before when trying to park in Limoges. Hence looking for smaller towns!
