Located to the west of Limoges, Aixe-sur-Vienne is part of the Périgord-Limousin Regional Nature Park. You’ll enjoy the charm of this town, with its rich and divers architecture and the large range of activities it has to offer. Fishing and canoeing/kayaking along the river Vienne, cycling and hiking in the surrounding countryside, there’s something for everyone to do here! Our Tourist Office also invites visitors to discover the other towns in the Val de Vienne area : Jourgnac, Bosmie-l’Aiguille, Burgnac, Beynac, Saint-Martin-le-Vieux, Séreilhac, Saint-Priest-sous-Aixe and Saint-Yrieix-sous-Aixe.
Aixe sur Vienne is also an "Ostensions" town. Ostensions are a popular and religious tradition that date back to the 10th century. These processions and festivities take place every 7 years in towns throughout Limousin and they go on for several months. The next ones will take place in 2016.
