Mini review – Why I Love Limousin - Limousin

limousin  Mini review   Why I Love Limousin   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceIt might be a very small blog but I am going to review Why l Love Limousin because of the obvious passion Barbara puts into her life in the Limousin and her commitment to update, what is her second website, at least once a month.

Barbara runs Bed & Breakfast, Chambres d’hôtes, a Gîte and painting courses from a beautiful stone farmhouse in the heart of the countryside with extensive gardens and views overlooking wild flower meadows and the chestnut woodlands of the Limousin.

Her website for all that, Les Trois Chênes, is a wealth of information about the area (with some scrumptious looking recipes) and Why l Love Limousin is the icing on the cake!

And it sometimes does worry me that these blog reviews always end up talking about food!




The blog starts in September 2009 with Gréve du Lait The milk strike in Limousin.

limousin  Mini review   Why I Love Limousin   because we all love reading blogs about life in France Barbara show sympathy for the farmers who were givign away their milk in protest at the low prices they received for it.

She said… “This is Constable country – England as our grandparents remember it and we must all back the farmers in an effort to conserve it and keep Limousin alive.”

Another post in the same month informs us about the very active Facebook Page which, in my humble opinion, is pretty much the perfect example of its type.

Dragging myself away from there I noticed that we were being encouraged to Visit Vieix.

Which is the… “Water Sports Centre of the Haute Charente Lakes and sits on the banks of Videix Lake just outside Verneuil.”

And yes, it does look like fun!

I was rather interested in Limousin – Land of Wolves and Witches as that, in a strange way, reminds me of my birthplace, Cornwall!

And there’s a link to a really good Hubpages article about the same subject but in more depth.

Which brings us nicely to a peach of a post… A walk in the snow around Videix which has some wonderful photos of…

A winter wonderland in the Limousin.

We are then reminded that The Medieval Festival of Rochechouart is on 20 August 2011 and, from the pictures it looks like a must visit event!

And did you notice those pigs roasting on a spit?

I counted six of them!

Enough for Breakfast, Dinner and Tea!

Finally, in January at Les Trois Chenes we get some updates and the promise that the blog will be updated regularly.

So, summing up…

Why l Love Limousin really has to be read in conjunction with Barbara’s Hubpages, the Trois Chenes website and the Facebook Page (I think there might even be a Squidoo Lens in there as well!)

There’s also an associated blog called Paint in Limousin which should be a feast for anyone who loves France and likes to paint.

Over al the sites there is a wealth of information and passion for this part of France and I would encourage anyone interested to pour a glass of wine and spend an hour or two delving through the lot.

All the best
