On the banks of the tranquil Vienne

The town of Aixe-sur-Vienne is situated in an idyllic location on the banks of the lovely River Vienne, and the tranquil flow of the river sets the scene for the pace of life in this attractive town. Aixe-sur-Vienne is set in a most green and unspoiled region of France, and if your idea of heaven is to avoid the over populated, touristy spots and find your own little piece of France, you could do worse than take a look at Aixe. The town is perhaps unremarkable in terms of spectacular architecture, but what it may lack in grandeur it makes up for in rustic charm. There are, however, some lovely old buildings in the town and a real sense of its history.

Lots to enjoy

There are a host of good shops, cafés and restaurants to enjoy in Aixe-sur-Vienne, and plenty of opportunities to try the local delicacies which include beef (from the famous Limousin cattle), locally grown chestnuts (from the beautiful woodland which surrounds the area), and perhaps some delicious cepes, which are a kind of strong flavoured wild mushroom which grow in abundance around Aixe-sur-Vienne.

Aixe-sur-Vienne's Friday market

Market day is Friday, and there is a fair held on every first Friday of the month. As ever with rural French towns, market day is the day that the town comes to life, with the townsfolk all turning out early to catch the freshest and best of the produce on offer. Don't lie in bed on market day!
