“Offering a simple and comprehensive service where the little extras make all the difference.”
“What I like about my job is working with my teams and guests, and critically appraising our service every day.” For Nicolas, owner of The Originals City Limoges Sud-Feytiat, the hotel industry is a passion. “A passion for hospitality and the trade, from breakfast to bed!” In a great location (near the A20), in a 2000 m2 verdant setting, his three-star establishment offers simple, comprehensive and quality services. Forty-five recently renovated rooms, a friendly restaurant with authentic local flavours and two seminar rooms, all just a few minutes from Limoges city centre. “I like to give a good welcome and for guests to feel happy here because the human touch is quality product!”
Whether double, triple, for families or mobility-impaired guests, the 45 rooms at The Originals City Limoges Sud-Feytiat are all spacious (17 m2 on average). Understated and modern with neutral tones and sleek styling, the decors evoke a range of ambiances. A reading corner and a welcome kit enhance the sense of warmth. Peaceful sleep and comfortable bedding create a warm and cosy feeling.
Enjoy a generous buffet breakfast in a bright, understated, fully renovated setting. With pancakes, croissants, cereals, yoghurt, honey (local!), milk (also local), hard-boiled eggs and fruit, the day begins with flavours aplenty in the dining room or out on the terrace. Traditional, home-made cuisine is served for lunch and dinner and guests can unwind in the friendly bar at The Originals City Limoges Sud-Feytiat.
From generous buffets of starters and desserts to seasonal menus, everything is home-cooked. “There’s nothing wrong with jingoism here – our chefs showcase fantastic regional produce with a focus on short supply chains,” says Nicolas. “Beef is our speciality. We have an awesome burger!” Open for lunch and dinner.
A treasure trove of art and history on the banks of the Vienne, little-known Limoges is truly worth a visit. Why not make the most of your stay at The Originals City Limoges Sud-Feytiat to explore all it has to offer?
This five-hectare “garden” at the heart of the Cité district is home to six terraces overlooking Vienne. Explore a French garden, a botanical garden with medicinal and aromatic plants and an ecological area presenting Limousin's natural environments. An open-air walk offers unobstructed views over Saint-Etienne cathedral (built over six centuries!).
This unique and narrow road is lined with half-timbered houses and was once home to the butchers’ guild with up to 50 shops! A rich and powerful world apart, it even built a private chapel dedicated to its patron saint: Saint-Aurélien. The guild has since left the road but the old signs remain. Every October, the district gets its appetite back during the Frairie des Petits Ventres® food festival.
World-renowned for the quality of its porcelain, Limoges also stands out with its excellence in the other “fire arts” (stained glass, ceramic, enamel). See for yourself by following the porcelain trail across a city route dotted with works, and visit the Four des Casseaux, one of the last intact ovens, the Royal Limoges factory and the Bernardaud and Havilland production plants.
A symbol of prosperity and development in Limoges, Bénédictins Station is considered one of France’s most beautiful stations. Built in the 1920s, its verdigris dome and 67 metre-tall clock tower rise over the tracks. On the concourse, the stucco decorations and glass walls and roof are reminiscent of Art Nouveau. The plant motifs evoke Limousin. On the main façade, two allegorical sculptures depict an enamel and porcelain figure.
Tucked beneath the hills of Limoges lies a secret world that has yet to be fully explored. The tunnels under the city are estimated to cover 40 to 80 km, comprising antique aqueducts, sewers and networks of caves, sometimes over multiple levels. Most were used to store goods, such as food, wine and grains. During the Second World War, the Nazis used these tunnels to conceal their activities while the people took refuge there during bombing raids.
A few minutes from Limoges city centre and easily accessible from the A20, The Originals City Limoges Sud-Feyriat is a lovely setting for your seminars, conferences, work days, etc. The hotel offers a huge car park, an on-site restaurant and two fully equipped rooms with space for up to 40 people. Other draws include its natural light, the Wi-Fi (fibre-optic), the air conditioning and a new-generation, tactile, wireless screen. Outdoor breaks possible.
