Creuse holidays

General

  • Quiet Creuse site with woodlands, streams and lakes
  • Two kilometres outside Moutier-Malcard; Guéret 30 minutes' drive
  • Four acres of grounds with a heated pool, games room and kitchen

Anyone in search of a cracking Creuse break should certainly mull over the idea of a stay at Moulin des Forges. Why so? Well, for starters, have a closer look at the scenery: woodlands, streams and lakes (yes, lakes plural) make up the bulk of this four-acre spot, with a smattering of restored stone buildings thrown in for good measure.

It wouldn't be fair to focus only on the backdrop, though, as owners Colin and Christina have pitched in to sort an array of on-site leisure facilities: there's a heated outdoor pool here, plus a fully-equipped games room with wifi access, a snooker table, darts, a games console, DVDs and books. Un petit tour à bicyclette could also be in the pipeline, with two-wheelers available to hire on site for those who haven't brought their own along. Paddleboards are also available for an extra charge if you want to admire the site's watery spots from every conceivable angle.

Strong all-round facilities are another thing that'll keep you sweet at Moulin des Forges: there's a shared kitchen with plenty of space for food prep, plus a washing machine, toilets and hot showers. Barbecues are allowed here; with a bit of clever timing you can combine self-grilled bites with fresh bread straight from a local boulangerie that delivers on Tuesday and Friday mornings.

The village of Moutier-Malcard is about two kilometres away and has a post office and bar. Aigurande (15 minutes' drive) is home to the closest large supermarket.

Directions


Local attractions

What, you may be wondering, is the choice of châteaux like in this rural part of France? Well, here you have quite a bit to keep history boffins busy: Sarzay (30 minutes' drive) has a rather fine 14th-century specimen that's worth exploring, while Meillant (an hour and 10 minutes) has an impressively regal estate still inhabited by a marquis.

For sporting days out, meanwhile, you could trot down to the local riding school (five minutes' walk), putt a while at Hôtel Les Dryades golf course (10 minutes' drive) or try your hand at waterskiing at Sensas'park (10 minutes). This is a watery part of the world, and there are several other lakes around where you can swim or mess about in boats. Lac d'Éguzon (35 minutes) is good for both of these; if you fancy a lake on a somewhat grander scale, there's also Lac de Vassivière (an hour and 20 minutes).

And then there's Guéret (30 minutes), where a mix of cinemas, mediatheques, museums, open-air labyrinths and well-attended weekly markets should be enough to pique your curiosity for a good few hours.
