Description

Chateau de Montare sits in 36 hectares of private grounds and is hidden away, surrounded by forests and country side. Dating from around the 1450s, Chateau de Montare had always been in the same family until the current owners bought it and lovingly restored it.

This family friendly environment is perfect for children as they will love the outdoor areas. It is also completely safe, meaning parents are able to relax as they watch their children play. From the chateau, there are walking trails of up to 3 hours through forest and small tracks.

Area description

Chateau de Montare is 40 kilometres north of the 2000 year old city of Limoges - the 'Capitale des arts du feu' (The Capital of the Arts of Fire) or the capital of fine porcelain and unique ceramics.

Stretching back to the Middle Ages, today porcelain is a thriving industry here, yet it has never ceased to be an art. The industry can be traced back to the 10th century when goldsmith monks became very creative with enamel.


Haute-Vienne
The Haute-Vienne is the department in which Chateau de Montare is located but the entire area is called Limousin, which is essentially a green area dominated by forestry, pasture and water. The trees found in this area are Oak, Chestnuts, Beech, Cherry, and Firs, which cover 31 per cent of the grounds. Due to the vast amounts of forestry in this area, it is also famous for all its delicious wild mushrooms, chestnuts, walnuts and apples. From fruit bushes come the delectable blackberry, red currant, black currant, raspberry and strawberry, which are made into liqueurs. There is even a chestnut liqueur.

On the subject of food, we must not forget that the Limousin cow is one of the best known for its beef. The area is also known for its abundance of sheep and the 'black bum' pig. The Limousin cow has given the region a well-known traditional trade in leather, especially for its haute couture ladies gloves.


Le Lac du Vassiviere
One of the greatest lakes in France, 'le lac du Vassiviere', is one of the thousands of water surfaces in the area. The lake Vassiviere has a surface of 1000 ha. It is very wide, with 45 km long banks and 108 millions m3 (cubic) of pure water.

The water activities available in this area are wind surfing, water skiing, rafting, canoeing, kayaking and sailing. There is a vast variety of activities available in addition to water sports such as hiking, horse riding, mountain biking, bike riding, golf, mini golf, tennis, fishing, and tree climbing.
Lake Vassiviere is approximately 50 km from Chateau de Montare. However, the property has its own lake of one hectare and borders a lake of approximately 4 hectares, where fishing an take place. The Haute-Vienne has 2242 km of rivers, 1956 km of first quality and 286 of second quality. This is one of the reasons fishing is so prominent here. Trout and Carp of excellent quality are in abundance as well as fresh water Salmon, which is known to exist in only the cleanest waters.


The Landscape
This beautiful landscape, interchanging between forest, rolling hills, deep valleys, land rich in minerals, purest rivers and hundreds of lakes, is why the location of Chateau de Montare is so perfect.

The soil is not rich enough to be used as a profitable arable land but it is highly rich in minerals such as tin, lead, gold, copper, coal, quartz, uranium and kaolin. Kaolin is white fine clay, the real reason why this area is so famous for porcelain.


Architecture
Chateau de Montare is unique in many ways besides its surroundings. It is extraordinary, in the 21st century, to be able to stay in a chateau that dates back to the 15th century, owned by the same family until it was purchased by the current owners.

Lovers of architecture will enjoy exploring this typical Limousin area with its outstanding examples of life as it was in the Middle Ages.Its churches, towns and, above all, castles, which are open to the public, are a delight to explore. There is a very picturesque route, 'Richard Coeur de Lion', which is worth taking.


Falling Stars
Another interesting historical feature is the site of the meteorite that fell in Rouchecourt 160 million years ago. It is the only meteor site in the world where its crater and foundation can be observed three dimensionally.


Museums
There are 24 museums in the Haute-Vienne - 8 in the Creuse and 22 in the Correze. In the Haute-Vienne you can discover contemporary art, archaeological collections, vintage cars, distilleries, history, photography, sculpture and, of course, porcelain. Monet also painted many paintings of the Creuse and Renoir was born here.


Local Markets
French Markets have always been a special attraction in themselves and there are food markets every day during the summer and speciality food markets throughout the year. Medieval markets take place during the summer where visitors can enjoy medieval activities, performances and, sometimes, foods. There are also various antique markets, flea markets and great shops full of fascinating items.
