Compreignac - an old fortified town

Compreignac is a small fortified town lying on a hill overlooking the green countryside of the rural Haute-Vienne. Peaceful and authentic, the town is ideally located for accessing the city of Limoges and the many beautiful villages, monuments and lakes for which the area is noted.

Explore the town's heritage

The heritage of Compreignac can be seen in the remains of the fortifications and the stunning fortified church, said to be one of the most beautiful of its type in the region. Most of the town's houses and buildings are authentic and give an attractive, olde worlde air to Compreignac.

Amenities on offer

Although the town is small, it does offer some basic facilities, with a baker's, a butcher's, a tabac and a very useful little supermarket. Much greater facilities and amenities are available in the surrounding area, with Limoges, the capital city of the region, just half an hour's drive away. Restaurants can be found just outside the town.

Enjoy the wonderful countryside

The Haute-Vienne, and indeed, the whole Limousin region, is a treasure trove of things to do and see whether you are seeking holiday entertainment or activities to add another dimension to a permanent new life in this pretty part of France. The region is known for its vast, unspoilt areas of countryside and farmland, and especially for its stunning lakes which are perfect for fishing, swimming, boating and more.

Get active

How to get there
