Welcome to Ségur le Château and Kim's art
Here you can discover more about this beautiful and picturesque area of France. The Limousin comprises the departments of Correze, Creuse and Haute-Vienne. Largely agricultural but with the major exception of being the home of porcelain.
If you like bright lights and discotheques then this is not the place for you. If, however, you crave beautiful scenery, history, unspoilt villages, gastronomy including duck, foie gras, apples, chestnuts, to name but a few, then look no further. This is la France profonde. In bucketloads.
This medieval village is just one of the "Plus Beaux Villages de France" in the area. Thankfully not spoilt by becoming a tourism honey pot it remains largely as it has for decades. Vibrant during July and August thanks to the local tourist committee, but peaceful and calm for the other 10 months of the year. I hope you will enjoy a visit to the village whatever time of year you come.
Now see the new website for the village: Segur is here
You can also get a taste of Kim's wonderful artistic talent. Her favourite medium is watercolour but oils, acrylics, pastels and pen and ink often feature in her work. Her gallery in the village will be open most afternoons in July and into September. You can see her work on other pages here.
Another of Kim's talents is Doll's Houses and the like. In the gallery you can see a lovely old village shop full of goods, an old uncle's garden potting shed, a Salon de Thé and she may well be working on her latest project when you visit - a 3 storey Regency town house.
Information on commissions and lessons are here to tempt you. If you have any questions about the village, the area or Kim's art feel free to contact us by e-mail using the address - segurvillage@gmail.com - in your system.
