The house is in the middle of nature, along the walk to Saint Jacques de Compostelle. On the Southern side, the oak deck overlooks the Creuse Valley, known as the "Impressionists valley", as many painters captured this unique light, birds, and natural site. The Northern side is ideal to enjoy summer meals, with its cute garden with hamac and trampoline. All fields and garden around the house are private. 1 mn walk up the road is the hamlet of Chatillon. Driving 3mn to the left, the village of Badecon le Pin offers an amazing butcher, a baker and a convenience store. 10mn drive is Argenton sur Creuse, with a "Carrefour" supermarket, and a typical market on saturday mornings offering delicious local products and specialties. Driving 5mn to the right is the village of Gargilesse, always ranked among the nicest French villages with its artist workshops, castle, church, and unique crypt with a 11th and 13th century fresco. Yummy goat cheese producer too ;)
Many walks or bike rides around the house, providing spectacular landscaped on the valley, waterfalls, or river fishing spots. 20mn drive away is Eguzon, that offers a lake where waterskiing world championship is often held. Fun activities are available for kids at very affordable price.
