Les Salles Lavauguyon
Les Salles Lavauguyon is situated in central southwest France between, and within easy reach of two historical cities. Angouleme to the west, Limoges to the east. This small tranquil village can be found nestling within the Haute-Vienne region of the Limousin, and on the perimeter of the 'Pays de la Meteorite', where 200 million years previously, the landscape had been created by the impact of a huge meteorite.
The village, which is also on the route 'Richard Coeur de Lion', boast a national treasure, a Romanesque church that contains some of the finest frescoes in France. Its adjoining small medieval Priory is a building of equal interest. The church also played host to Pilgrims travelling to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain
The surrounding region, offers the best that nature can give, from the contrasting seasons, to the abundance of wildlife, fresh air, and the peace and quiet still found in rural France. The nearby lakes at Videix, Massignac, and St.Mathieu have sandy beaches, safe swimming, boating and wind surfing. This part of the Haute-Vienne is also a protected area as it is situated within the boundaries of the Perigord-Limousin Natural Park, and so for walkers, fishermen, cyclist, artist and bird watchers, it's quite breathtaking.
