Local Area

Montlucon provides a good selection of shops, supermarkets and restaurants and there is a castle situated in the old part of the town.

The view from the front of the property is across rolling hills and fields. There is a vast amount of Flora and Fauna in the immediate area including many birds of prey, deer and wild boar.

La Creuse is becoming more popular for holiday makers but still remains unspoilt. Some of the attractions include the town of Aubusson, famous for its tapestries. Many chateaux, churches and interesting bridges are in close proximity. If you are looking to buy a property in La Creuse this would be a good base for house hunting. There are also endless farm tracks and forests to be explored on foot or by mountain bike. The nearby town of Evaux les Bains is famous for its spa and there is also a casino there.

Although we are situated in La Creuse, its only a few kilometres from the Auvergne border which also has many attractions including the town Clermont Ferrand built on an extinct volcano. Its famous Gothic cathedral is very impressive.


The property itself is situated in a small hamlet of about 12 homes in the commune of Viersat. It is completely detached and has its own private rear garden with garden furniture and a barbecue.

There is parking for several cars and indoor parking for motorcycles.

Inside the property there are three bedrooms upstairs: a double and a twin both with a window to the rear overlooking fields and forests. To the front there is a room with bunk beds suitable for children. The shower room is also upstairs, with toilet and washbasin.

The entrance downstairs leads into the main lounge dining area, equipped with TV/DVD and CD Player. There is a log fire should you choose to stay in the winter months.

The kitchen is also well equipped. The bathroom is situated off the hall way downstairs with a bath, toilet and washbasin.

There are four mountain bikes available for hire.

We enjoyed the Gite, we are on a working holiday and so have spent little time here. This is the cleanest Gite we have ever stayed in. Sandra and Tony 16th May 2007

Lovely relaxing holiday. Good food and wine. Great walks. Gite cosy and relaxing. Puy de Dome worth a visit. Mike and Sue 6th Oct 2007

We all had a relaxing (almost too relaxing) holiday. Lovely walks in the area and a lovely bread from the van in Viersat. Very clean comfortable Gite. Saw the wolves in Gueret, well worth seeing, thanks for a great stay :) Loz, Wendy, Beccy and Ginnie 27th Oct 2007.

We have had a relaxing and enjoyable week greatly helped by Robert's advice about places to see and restaurants for good meals. We especially enjoyed the Coq d'Or. Food delicious and staff friendly. We have been coming to France for 30 years and have rented over 25 Gites and this is definitely one of the very best. It's roomy,and tastefully and superbly renovated. Everything has been thought of and we would definitely recommend it as a marvellous base to explore the area. It's comfortable and welcoming, and though it was cold most days with some crisp frosts the gite was warm and the fire is easy to manage. John and Molly 3rd Nov 2007.

Eating out
