Éguzon (or Chambon) lake lies in the heart of the Creuse valley and covers 312 hectares. At this vast stretch of water surrounded by pleasant, unspoiled scenery, you can either unwind on one of the equipped beaches or get active with one of the many activities on offer: water slide, wind sailing, canoeing, boating, water skiing, pedalos, swimming, rowing and fishing. Coffee shops, bars and restaurants.
A viewpoint on the hillside above the lake offers a beautiful view of the impressive Éguzon dam.
The village is a member of the 'most beautiful villages of France' organisation and perhaps best known as the village where the 19th century novelist George Sand wrote some of her works.
Although it is very small, France This Way highly recommend you visit.
The combination of the pretty houses of the village, the historic castle around which Gargilesse developed, the church and the river, combine to make for a very picturesque village with a great deal for visitors to enjoy.
A small town in a scenic setting on the Creuse river. Originally developed around an important medieval castle.
It is the houses that line the river that are the most scenic highlight in Argenton - many have balconies that further overhang the slow moving water, and the Church of Saint-Benoit and an old stone bridge adding interest to the backdrop.
There are also several small highlights to explore in the town. You can see the remains of an ancient castle (not very extensive - Richelieu did an impressive job of its demolition after the French revolution) and three churches:
The Chapel of Saint-Benoit, dating from the 15th century and now used for exhibitions;
The church of Saint-Sauveur, also dating from the 15th century and with an impressive 19th century belltower;
The church of Saint-Etienne - step inside to see the large painting by Paul Chenavard called 'The martyr of Saint Polycarp'
You will come across a good number of medieval houses as you explore the streets of the historical centre (particularly in the part of the town on the right bank of the river), the most impressive of which are the Hotel de Scevole (17th century) and the 16th century Hotel Duperthuis. Although we can only glimpse the outside of this manor house, near the end of the old bridge, you can see the main tower which holds the staircase and also the watch tower.
Most visits here will concentrate in the older part of the town, where many houses can be seen that were built from the 16th century onwards, when Chateauroux became an important local centre for textile production.
Before you start be sure to visit the Chateauroux Tourist Office to get the detailed guide showing a large number of monuments and buildings of interest in the town, and suggesting two routes to follow as you explore, one focusing on the medieval period (the northern part of the town centre) and the other on more recent history (the southern half of the town centre) - or you can see and print the guide here.
Constructed from the 13th to 15th centuries and stands on a raised area above the valley of the River Arnon, an exceptional castle to visit, substantial yet not too imposing.
There are several features of interest both inside and outside Culan castle.
The castle plays host to various medieval festivals and reenactments during the summer holidays.
While visiting Culan there are other features of interest apart from the castle, including some attractive medieval houses and the arched stone bridge and wooded valley below the castle.
Additional cleaning charges will apply if the house is not left clean and tidy as you find it.
