Go to the house. Take the path that goes down to the left next to this house. Cross the Gartempe. At the crossroads you will meet, first turn right, then left before going straight on to Chironceau. You arrive behind a house at the corner of which you turn right and then immediately left to take a very old sunken lane.

At the first intersection turn right, then straight ahead until you go along the Genête pond. At the road, turn left. Follow it for about 500 m before taking a path on the right a little after the house. At the end of the path you will discover a cross with its lime tree called "de Sully". Planted under Henry IV for reforestation purposes, lime trees marked the entrance to Catholic villages and their unification. Take the road on the right. Cross the village and follow the road to reach the Vedrenne. Just before the farm, take the path on the left. Follow this same track to Rissat, then the road to reach Theil.

Take it on the left to Mazemiard where you turn left in the direction of Lines. Go down the first path on the right. At the intersection, go left. You will then pass another path on the left before joining the road. Turn left and take the first road on the right and go up to the village of Maisonniesses.
