Limousin - Historic Region of France

Limousin is a former region of France. Situated on the western slopes of the Massif Central, this is an area often considered off the beaten track where romantic notions of rural French life still exist. The region included the departments of Corrèze, Creuse and Haute-Vienne. With the re-ordering of the administrative regions at the end of 2015, from 2016 Limousin was combined with Aquitaine and Poitou-Charentes to form the region now known as Nouvelle-Aquitaine.
