We would definitely recommend a visit to the 'Lake de Vassiviere' which was amazing with beaches, walks, boat rides and a chateau. The closest city, Limoges is fantastic dating back to the 12th century with a very impressive cathedral. The wolf park is a must and for kids there is another beach with loads of water sports in Gueret half an hour away. Lots of markets, cafes and restaurants to visit in lovely french villages and towns. if you like walking and cycling then you'll love this area.
