WALKING WITH DONKEYS - You can hire a donkey to take with you which can carry your picnic and belongings. A lovely thing to do especially if you have little children as they can enjoy the ride.

CLING IN CREUSE - This has to be one of the best areas for cycling, be it just gentle pedalling or more disciplined riding. The lack of traffic, the large number of country lanes, the pure air and the varied stunning countryside make it hard to beat for a venue for cyclists.

HORSE RIDING - Part of the Limousin region in southwest France, the Creuse département is known as the ‘Green heart of France’. It’s full of the wide-open spaces that a rider dreams about. With a population of around 125 000 (there are however, over 400 000 cows!) in an area of 5 563km2 you can ride along the roads for hours and meet only a tractor or a stray cow or two. In the 145 000 hectares of forests you'll meet, apart from the odd mountain biker or walker, deer, boar, rabbits, birds of prey…. In fact you'll be an integral part of what makes the Creuse special – Nature.
Whether you prefer open fields or ancient forests, majestic castles or quaint medieval villages, the Creuse has it. And the Creuse Tourist Board has devised a way for riders to explore the département while enjoying the liberty that a horse can give you. They have created 6 circuits that you can follow at your own pace. Each circuit has been carefully planned so that you see the maximum of the département while indicating where you and your horse can stay overnight.

FISHING - The fishing in the Limousin is reckoned to be second to none in France. There are just so many lakes and rivers to choose from. With so little industry and such small scale farming, the water is clear and unpolluted and you can virtually have a lake or river to yourself.
