For buying and selling property in Laurière

Laurière - a well located market town

Laurière is a small market town that is set in the pretty countryside of the Haute-Vienne department, in the Limousin region of central France. Although Laurière lies in rural surroundings, the town makes a perfect base for regular holidays as it is close to the transport hub of Limoges, and also has good access to the A20 motorway.

Well equipped with shops, services and a leisure lake

Although Laurière is not really much more than a village, it is a very well equipped village with facilities more akin to those found in much larger towns. These include a baker's, butcher's, small general store, pharmacy, post office, petrol station, hairdresser's and even a couple of friendly bars where you can enjoy a glass of wine or join the residents for a pastis. Just outside the village there is a great leisure lake with safe swimming and beaches for relaxing. The town also hosts not just one but two traditional markets, held on Tuesday and Saturday mornings.

Outdoor activities available

The Limousin is a perfect outdoor playground as it offers acres and acres of unspoiled countryside where walkers, cyclists and horse riders can pursue their hobbies in idyllic surroundings. The forests and lakes add another dimension, suggesting further activities such as nature trailing, acrobranche (tree climbing and zip wire) and water sports to the list of possibilities.

Enjoy the history and culture of the area

The region is also a goldmine of historical and cultural places to visit. The capital city of Limoges, noted worldwide for its fine porcelain tradition is also a superb city to explore, having an historic centre and many cultural venues and events. Other places to see in the vicinity are Saint Leonard de Noblat, a gorgeous historical town that oozes heritage; pretty Saint Pardoux with its fantastic leisure lake; the memorial town of Oradour sur Glane (a monument to a Nazi atrocity committed there during the Second World War); the listed "most beautiful town" of Mortemart; and several wonderful castles, abbeys and collegiate churches.
