Fonclaire: The pool, surrounded by nature

General

  • Small and quiet site with fishing lake, on a former farm in Limousin
  • Monts de Blond within 10 minutes' drive; 40 minutes to Limoges
  • A 10-minute drive from Bellac: restaurants, shops and river walks

Catch a carp, hail the herons and cycle up the Monts de Blond at Fonclaire, a small and secluded site in the Limousin region.

The landscape in this part of central France is a gentle one: forest-covered hills interspersed with multiple lakes, rivers and streams, and the odd castle rearing up from the granite. Fonclaire makes a fine base to see it all from... deer often wander through the pastures of this former farm, while herons and buzzards flap and soar overhead.

Aquatic antics are the name of the game on site: there's an outdoor pool for the splashers and swimmers, while anglers can hang out at the private (catch and release) carp fishing lake (rods and tackle can be provided for a small deposit). Outdoor board games, bike hire, a play area and badminton are also available for guests.

For those who might be more into wandering, the trés belle town of Bellac is 10 minutes' drive away, with restaurants, shops and river walks down the Vincou, or you could head to the lovely lakes at Cieux (20 minutes) and Saint-Pardoux (40 minutes) for canoeing and kayaking.

Market days make a great opportunity for picking up a picnic... and the riverbanks a prime spot for eating your foraged wares...

Directions


Local attractions

The town of Blond five minutes’ drive away is the gateway to the Monts de Blond, an enclave of granite mountains covered in forest and teeming with wildlife. Many of the Limousin’s famed 7,700 kilometres of bike trails thread their way through and around Monts; overheated bikers and hikers can stop off at the clear, refreshing and highly dippable lakes and pools.

For town-based adventuring, you can’t do better than the old walled citadel of Rochechouart 45 minutes away, sitting sits in a dip created by a meteorite (that’s possibly why such a sturdy castle was built here, millions of years later). Wander around here to find the museum of modern art hidden within its thick walls, then up your historical times with a visit to the Roman baths at Chassenon, 40 minutes from the site.

Loaf over to Limoges (40 minutes) to compare their castle (it's heavily castled in this neck of the woods), see the church that took six centuries to finish (builders, eh?) and pick up some porcelain. There are lots of adventure parks in the environs as well: ropes and swinging at Tarz en Arbre, go-kart rides and slides and boat-based antics at Parc Bellevue. Parc du Reynou zoo is within 50 minutes' drive.
