Landscapes and patterns along the water
By turns rebellious, impetuous, bucolic and peaceful, rivers are an endless source of inspiration here: the Gorges de la Creuse (passing through Glénic, Champsanglard, Anzême, le Bourg d’hem), the classified site “Claude Monet” at Fresselines, the confluent of the Creuse and the Sédelle in Crozant, to the Lac d’Eguzon, Gargilesse, etc.
From Crozant, travel by boat rideor board a canoë with your easel to relive the history of this Creuse Valley.
Nature walk to discover the small heritage
The hand of man here more than elsewhere has shaped the landscape. Modest or majestic, the mills and bridges, these memories of the past, have always attracted artists: the moulin de Piot on the Petite Creuse in Chéniers, the bridge and mill of Vervy or the passerelle du Puy Guillon in Fresselines and finally the favorite motif of painters, the moulin de la Folie on the Sédelle in Crozant.
As for the towers and castles, they are the historical witnesses of the struggles of influence between Capetians and Plantagenets… the Castle of Puy Guillon in Fresselines, the fortress of Crozant, the Castle of Gargilesse, the Rocher de la Fileuse in St Plantaire, etc.
