Its position on the river Vienne, the half-timbered houses of the medieval old town, and the city's museums, myriad of shops and art galleries make Limoges a popular place to stay, as well as the perfect base for exploring this fascinating region. For the ultimate freedom on your visit to Limoges, car hire services are available at the airport.
Our Vehicles for Hire in Limoges
The Enterprise branch in Limoges offers a wide range of vehicles to suit your requirements and budget. For a short city break, solo or with a partner, a car in the mini class will have you zipping through the streets in style. Stretch your legs a little more with an economy or compact model, which gives you extra space for luggage and souvenirs. If you're bringing the kids, give them some space in the back seat by hiring one of our standard cars, or go large with an estate or minivan. An estate, minivan, or monospace car is also a great choice if you're travelling with friends, since these vehicles will seat up to five adults in comfort. An SUV gives excellent road handling alongside a spacious interior and boot, making it a good option if you plan to cover a lot of miles on your holiday. Do things your way and choose from a range of options, including power steering, cruise control, and ABS, with a petrol or diesel engine. With cars from Citroën, Peugeot, and Renault, to name but a few, you can experience French roads in a French car.
Attractions in Limoges
For many, the main attraction of Limoges is its famous porcelain. As well as seeing examples of historic manufacture in the town's museums, and picking up a souvenir or two in the shops, you can tour a factory and watch porcelain products being made in the traditional fashion. The cathedral, which dates from the thirteenth century, is another draw, as is the Gare des Benedictins railway station with its stained-glass windows and impressive architecture. Wander the narrow streets and admire the half-timbered houses of the old town, or stroll through the botanical gardens. Limoges has both an indoor and an outdoor market, selling fresh produce and regional specialities, including locally brewed beers. There are a number of museums, including the Musée National Adrien Dubouche with its collection of porcelain, paintings at the Musée Beaux Arts, and the Musée de la Resistance, which tells the story of occupied France during the Second World War. Limoges is easy to get around by car.
Places to Visit Outside Limoges
A hired car really comes into its own when you set off to explore the many sights of this region, giving you the freedom to roam the countryside and stop off at points of interest. Take a trip to a vineyard, and perhaps pick up a bottle or two, and nature lovers can enjoy a drive or walk through one of the area's national parks. The village of Rocamadour, which seems to defy gravity as it perches above a rocky gorge, is a popular tourist attraction, as are the caves at Lascaux II, with their reproductions of the ancient cave art found nearby. The medieval town of Cahors and the fortified village of Sarlat are both must-sees. Limoges is a gateway to exploring the Haute-Vienne and neighbouring Dordogne.
