omgeving camping du lac de bujaleuf




This region, the Haute Vienne department, is often skipped by holidaymakers on their way to the south of France. Fortunately ;) Because the charm comes from the quiet and friendly character. No crowds of tourists or crowded beaches here.

Because not all places of interest in the area are easy to find online, we have already listed a few personal tips for you. These are places and / or restaurants where we like to go ourselves.

Personal tips

There is a small market every week on the village square of Bujaleuf. In the summer months there are also often night markets and broccantes organized in St. Leonard de Noblat and Eymoutiers (15 km from the campsite). However, due to Covid-19, this will be limited or adjusted in 2021.

Aquarium du Limousin

The aquarium in Limoges is very small compared to the large aquariums in modern zoos, but that's exactly what makes it special. It feels like a night dive with cute seahorses, lobsters and strange blind creatures in Mexican caves along the way.
