We loved the Wolf Sanctuary close by and the butchers quarter in Limoges with all the old buildings.
Saint Dizier is a very pretty village, Borguaneuf the nearest town was our favourite place with the castle and quaint square and shops. Gueret 30 mins up the road was also nice with a great selection of shops and restaurants.
The surrounding area of Saint Dizier is very beautiful with the forests and the rivers. I tried hard to learn some French before heading out to France and the locals are really friendly and helpful.
I would highly recommend Saint Dizier as a base to discover this beautiful country
