A car (or rental car) is a good way to travel around France and useful if you want to visit slightly remote places. The roads in France are of good quality. On the highways it is regularly indicated where the nearest petrol stations / restaurant, picnic areas are. Please note that you have to pay toll on the French motorways. You can pay by credit card or cash at the toll gates.
Furthermore, you must be in possession of International Insurance Certificates or the green card if you are going with your own car. In France it is mandatory to have an alcohol tester in the car.
A Dutch driving license is sufficient, so an international driving license is not necessary.
This is a bit more difficult, you can fly to Lyon, but you must have a rental car. Moulin de Chez Joyeux is actually a difficult destination to go to without a car.
The official language in France is French. Each region speaks its own dialect. In the tourist area you can go as a tourist with English.
Just like in the Netherlands, people in France pay with the Euro. You can go to most banks with credit cards and Traveler’s checks. With a Dutch bank or giro debit card which has a maestro or cirrus sign, you can go to the ATMs. American Express, Diners Club, Via, Master and Eurocard passes are accepted in almost all restaurants, shops and petrol stations.
Limousin is a region on the west side of the Massif Central in France. Limousin and the capital Limoges have a mild climate. The sun already starts to shine in spring, the summers are wonderfully warm. Because Limoges is located on the Massif Central, it can sometimes be rainy for days. However, the average rainfall per month never exceeds 100 mm.
