Native of Dordogne, I knew the Creuse more than 20 years ago when I was a student in Bordeaux.
It is thanks to my friendship with a Creuse woman that I discovered this legendary place. Intrigued by the story of my friend, I only wanted to discover it by myself. We won’t lie, it’s the anecdotes and the legends woven around the place that attracted my curiosity 😉
And then I couldn’t wait to see this famous stone that supposedly holds in balance 🤔
The 1st time I went to the Pierres Jaumâtres assault was in September, late September. At the tip of Mont Barlot the tone is set. The reddish autumn sun bathes the site in a magical atmosphere. The atmosphere is magical, I have no doubt: fairies have lived here for sure! All the legends come to life in my head and I imagine them, playing, dancing, going here and there in total carefreeness.
I am conquered, under the spell, I fall in love with this place directly! It is not without surprise that I say that this is not the last time I come here 😍
