Limousin is situated at the far northwestern point of Massif Central. It is the least populated region in the country. The countryside remains relatively un-spoiled, as it is still new territory to tourists. It is abundant in rivers, torrents and lakes, making it a haven for fishing and sporting enthusiasts. Auvergne, east of Limousin, is a region steeped in history, stretching across most of Massif Central. With its extinct volcanoes, mountains reaching 1900 m in altitude, and narrow and wide valleys, Auvergne is one of the most interesting regions in the country, and is sadly often missed by tourists. It is characterised by vast natural reserves, thermal springs and remarkable historical sites.
