    Hi. Just wondered if anyone has done this region at this time of year and what kind of weather we could expect.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers Chris

    Hi Brain and Chris, its worth the extra couple of hundred miles to get some sunshine, Ken and Steph live at parc verger and a couple of years ago sat in snow, last year they went south. :Wink: :Rofl1: Bob.

    Our first winter here was fantastic. Only two weeks of snow at 3" deep. It was sunny and very dry. Even walking in the snow our feet were dry, the snow was like sugar!
    This year we can't get to Spain, it is very wet at the moment but it could change! We have been in t shirts and shorts in January. :thumb:

    Our nieghbours have a seconed home in the limousin area and they havn't ventured down there at Christmas weather just to cold and icy roads. Why don't you go down to Benidorm quite a gang of funsters that way forChristmas.:Smile:

    We have lived in the Limousin for the past 4 years. The coldest night temperature we have had has been -12 degrees and -4 daytime. It has also been at +18 degrees also so anywhere between is to be expected. We live at 250 meters above sea level if that helps.

    Hi ken and Steph, sorry to hear that, we will have to try and call in, maybe on the way back. :Wink: when it warns up a bit. :Laughing:
    Keep looking at the blog Ken, :RollEyes: is there going to be a next chapter ?

    We were in Brantome a couple of years back at Christmas, it was -8 without the wind chill, but perfectly dry and clear blue skies.
    Make sure you choose sites with well insulated water supplies, easy access in case of bad road conditions and good walking nearby to enjoy the winter scenery...sounds like an advert for Parc Verger.
