Ladignac le Long lies in a beautiful setting

The village of Ladignac le Long is set in the glorious unspoilt countryside of the Perigord/Limousin National Park, in the Haute-Vienne department in western-central France. Typical of its area, with distinctively shaped Perigordian stone houses and a rural feel, this village benefits from its own leisure lake as well as from being close to the many attractions of the Limousin, Poitou-Charentes and the Dordogne.

Well equipped offering most amenities

Ladignac is well equipped with shops, providing for most of your day to day needs, and has essential services such as doctors, dentists, a garage and a primary school. There is a little bar, and also a restaurant for those days when you want to treat yourself to the delicious local cuisine but don't want to travel far. Just a short distance away is the delightful small market town of St Yrieix la Perche, which offers further amenities. Various events make up the charming social calendar of the village, with picnics beside the lake, fireworks and dancing for Bastille Day in July and exhibitions of art in the delightfully named "Room of Water".

Admire Ladignac le Long's architecture and beauty

The village is historic as well as pretty, and offers things to do and see in terms of its patrimony and architecture in addition to its natural beauty. There is a lovely 12th century church, built in Romanesque Limousin style, complete with porch and arches, and also many traditional buildings about the village. Ladignac le Long is also notable for its serpentine columns and collection of statues dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries.

Explore the Perigord/Limousin National Park

Ladignac's greatest glory, though, lies less in its history and architecture and more in its beautiful, natural setting. The village lies in the Perigord/Limousin National Park, one of France's prettiest swathes of countryside. This is a land of lakes and meadows, of woodlands and wildlife. Nature lovers will find the environment nothing short of paradise, with guided walking trails where you can catch sight of wild deer, coypu and other fauna and flora so rarely seen in the built up UK these days.

Enjoy lakeside activities

Ladignac le Long sits on the edge of a pretty lake, where you can enjoy long sunny days being as lazy or as active as you like. Here you will find pedaloes, always popular with children (and often with "grown up" children as well!) and facilities for swimming (supervised in the summer, so ideal for families), sunbathing, walking and fishing. There is a children's playground beside the lake, a climbing wall and picnic tables.

Out and about

The location of Ladignac le Long is on the borders of the Limousin and the northern Dordogne (not to forget Poitou-Charentes!). This makes it perfect for exploring not just the Limousin region of lakes and porcelain, but it also enables you to discover the stunning scenery of the Dordogne and to enjoy the theme parks and historic cities of Poitou-Charentes as well.

Visit the Parc de Reynou and mediaeval Ambazac

Places to go include Limoges, capital of the region with the National Porcelain Museum well worth a visit, and the Parc de Reynou wildlife park. Or visit one of the fascinating villages and towns that are so abundant in this region, perhaps Chalus, with a castle and lively markets, mediaeval Ambazac or the tragic memorial village of Oradour sur Glane. For those who like to be active on holiday, the area offers golf, horse-riding, cycling (with cycle hire), walking, fishing, swimming, tennis and more.
