There are lots of picturesque apple orchards around too, which are a beautiful sight in the spring when they are swathed in blossom.

Coussac Bonneval has a fairytale castle

Coussac Bonneval has a beautiful castle, looking as though it has come straight from the film set of Sleeping Beauty!

Coussac Bonneval offers all amenities

The village has all the usual amenities (shops, village school, doctors etc.), with a handful of bars and restaurants thrown in for good measure! Coussac Bonneval isn't a large town, but it offers most of the things you will need for a comfortable daily life.

Out and about

There are, however, lots of places of interest to discover locally too. The city of Limoges is always worth a visit, and it's great for shopping and dining too if you just fancy one of those city days! Then there is the tragic town of Oradour sur Glane, which was the scene of a terrible atrocity in the war, and which has been preserved as a historic monument.

The TGV goes to Angoulême, so Coussac Bonneval is altogether very easily accessible from the UK. If travelling by car you will find the village about fifteen minutes from the A20 auto route.
