France Haute Vienne prices seem very welcoming, does anyone have experience with owning a holiday property there?

My husband and I are looking for people with experience in having a holiday property around Limoges. General life, climate, travel to and from England.
We love the àrea of Bordeaux but the summer's may be overly hot there?? Or did we catch it on a scorcher? As for haute vienne the country side is lovely.
