Bussière Poitevine - a market town by the River Gartempe

Bussière Poitevine is a charming small town that lies along the side of the River Gartempe in the lush countryside of the Limousin. With its picturesque setting, authentic atmosphere and attractive local shops, this little Haute-Vienne town makes a lovely, peaceful base for anyone wanting to escape to the simple pleasures of rural France.

First class boulangerie and much more besides

Bussière Poitevine is just a small town, with under a thousand permanent residents, but it has a good collection of local shops which include that most French of delights, a first class boulangerie where you can treat yourself to freshly baked baguettes, croissants and delicious pastries and cakes. Most of your everyday needs are available within the town, as apart from its many small shops, it has bars and some charming restaurants. There is a twice-weekly traditional market too, as well as a larger market held on the 5th of each month. Small hotels and gites are available for holiday rentals.

Enjoy the slow pace of life

It's not difficult to occupy yourself in and around Bussière Poitevine, although it must be said that if it is a rowdy nightlife that you are seeking you could be in the wrong place! The pleasures of life here are quieter, and taken rather more slowly than those found in the big cities and towns of the UK. So settle down to enjoy a spot of fishing, walking or gentle cycling and finish your day with a tasty meal in a welcoming restaurant or have a relaxing night sitting outside under a canopy of stars enjoying a bottle of good and inexpensive wine.

Out and about

There are any number of interesting places to visit in the region, and you could do far worse than start with a trip to the capital city of Limoges. If you want a poignant reminder of the horrors of the war, visit the tragic village of Oradour sur Glane, scene of a terrible Nazi massacre which has been preserved as a national monument. The region abounds with pretty towns and traditional events, and during the summer months especially you will find many villages holding fêtes which are always a colourful way to discover the local culture.

How to get there

The town lies within an hour of both Limoges and Poitiers, so it is easy to get there by air or by rail. Drivers will find the town very close to the fast N147 road, along the D942.
