Wild and authentic nature

The Creuse is here, generous and authentic.

A mischievous river flirting with the granite, chestnut trees playing with the sun’s rays, bursts of laughter around a tasty piece of beef, a child amazed at his first trout, a landscape of moors nimbed with dew, the imprint of history revealed at the bend of a path… The setting is set. It gives you the gift of its riches, it’s up to you to cultivate them, in complete freedom, according to your desires…

Great spaces, hilly landscapes,

Sometimes wise, sometimes wild, Creuse takes shape, discovering its remarkable landscapes that give it this personality so endearing. Horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking… the Creuse is a real breath of fresh air for sports buffs and lazy addicts.

Some must-see spots: the Millevaches Natural Park, the steep landscapes of the Painters’ Valley Impressionists, the forest massif of Chabrières, the Landes Pond Nature Reserve, the lac de Vassivière our “little Canada” or the many rivers and waterfalls that dot the entire territory…

In Creuse, the green and blue country, the border between landscape and garden is tenuous. Many gardens have the same desire, to make visitors aware of the diversity of the plant world in the natural extension of the landscape, to design a fluid and gentle garden architecture that accompanies the natural movement of the walk.

“In Creuse, I am in my element, I am in the middle of nature, in my environment… I am as a man, an element of that!”
