La Creuse is a department that has long inspired many artists and painters with its beautiful landscapes.
Its natural park of Millevaches is an exceptional site, where flora and fauna are preserved. Stretching over a vast area of water, it is in the Creuse that we find the largest artificial lake in France: Lake Vassivière. Many hiking trails are accessible, regularly used by hikers. The Landes ponds are classified as national nature reserves. Hundreds of plant and animal species can be observed. The landscapes of the Creuse are so striking that several landscape painters have immortalized them, Claude Monet being one of them. The Crozant school, which brought together several of these painters, also saw the light of day in the 1830s until 1950.
La Creuse is also known for its Aubusson tapestries. The museum of tapestry is a must in the Creuse and highlights this art of weaving. UNESCO has even classified Aubusson tapestries as the intangible heritage of humanity! The castle of Villemonteix or Boussac, the church of Moutier d'Ahun or the remains of the citadel of Crozant are monuments steeped in history to visit.
The town of Evaux Les Bains offers a spa and is ideal for a holiday in the Creuse because the area is ideal for beautiful walks. We also advise you to visit: Budelière, a village with an important historical heritage or Chambon Sur Voueize and its beautiful gorges. The Jaumâtres stones are among the unusual visits not to be missed. The site, located in Toulx-Sainte-Croix, offers the spectacle of giant stones placed here and there. This strange and original site offers beautiful walks to do. We also advise you to go through the arboretum of La Sédelle, to get lost in the giant labyrinth of Guéret or to observe the wolves in their daily lives in the Monts de Guéret animal park. The village of Masgot and its many sculptures is also not to be missed in the Creuse!
If you want to stay in the Creuse and enjoy pleasant temperatures for your visits, we recommend you leave between the months of May and September to enjoy the climate of the area. The hottest months remain in July, August and September.
Whether you own a caravan, a motorhome, or a van, get ready for a roadtrip filled with unique camping and sightseeing experiences!
