Tourist sites for the whole family

The Monts de Guéret animal park, the Labyrinth, the Senator’s Museum, 3 of the most visited sites in Creuse. The complex offers a range of outdoor activities or… when it rains.

The animal park, often called “Parc aux Loups” is a must. The fascination exercised by these animals is very real and works on both young and old. Our advice: don’t miss feeding time and the times of year (June) when the little cubs of the year leave the den.

The labyrinth is an opportunity for a family walk guided by questions of general culture. Once out of the meandering vegetation, you can practice the many games (18) more or less traditional…. Fun guaranteed. If you are more sporty, an accrobranche park adjoins the labyrinth.

The Senator’s Museum houses Dutch, Flemish and French paintings (including some from the Impressionists Valley), Celtic and Gallo-Roman archaeological collections. A room is dedicated to Asian arts. Note the natural history cabinet where you can see hundreds of naturalized animals.

A nature sports offer that will amaze you!

The Monts de Guéret offer the possibility to practice several activities related to the three elements: water, land and air.

Some examples…. Water with swimming in Courtille, but also sailing, canoeing on the Creuse in Glénic, stand-up paddle and sailing (initiation), fishing. The air with paragliding, climbing with several spots in the open air labelled FFE. The land with the FFC labelled mountain bike area, hiking or trail trails. The nature sports school offers packages for groups (all year round) and individuals. A qualified guide is at your disposal to discover disciplines such as mountain biking, orienteering, fishing, etc. The school also offers equipment rental (mountain bikes for example).

The advantage of the Monts de Guéret nature sports school also lies in the range of offers for all ages and its proximity to leisure facilities. Also, it is not uncommon to see the pitchoune initiate archery with a state-certified instructor while the parents relax on Courtille beach or the mother goes for a short walk/notch walk in the nearby Maupuy. For clubs, the Monts de Guéret nature sports school offers tailor-made “all-inclusive” courses, so contact them!
