Le Dorat is located in the département of Haute-Vienne, which forms a part
of the Limousin region of France. Limousin is a rural and agricultural area, bounded
on the west by Poitou-Charentes and on the east by the Auvergne.
The main attraction of this region has to be its beautiful and unspoilt
countryside - small villages full of character tucked away off the beaten
track, lakes where fishing is popular and permitted, woods, fields and rivers.
The regional capital, Limoges, is the place to visit if you wish to see a wide range of
the famous Limoges porcelain.
However, there is also a porcelain outlet here in Le Dorat.
"The Limousin is a land of upland pastures,
forestry and pure water,
springing from the region itself or just a
little higher in the Massif Central.
Springs and fountains, rivers and streams, flow into the Loire
or south into the Garonne, irrigating the green fields and
flowing through woodland and gorges..."
