THE AREA


CYCLING IN THE CREUSE

This has to be one of the best areas for cycling, be it just gentle pedalling or more disciplined road riding or VTT. 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.

CYCLE RACING
- If you are a serious cyclist you will be pleased to know that Raymond Poulidor's training circuit around Lac de Vassivière is close at hand and it is also possible to join in on some of the events, which are numerous in the summer, or just to go along and experience the atmosphere.

CYCLING ROUTES starting from here.
Last summer Martin, one of our camping/cycling guests was kind enough to make 10 routes starting from here and put them on this great website GPSies .com
You can choose from 10 routes. You can upload routes on the navigation system for your bike if you have one . You can also see the length of the route and how many meters you will be climbing. You can click on the route and get a map .
Hope you enjoy it!!

WALKING ROUTES close by.
We have some local walks starting from here and can provide maps. It is possible to walk to Bourganeuf (a beautiful walk ) on the GR4 which traverses the village. Go the other way on the GR4 and you will come to Soubrebost where you can join the Martin Nadaud trail, a way marked 10K walk with many points of interest, including the mysterious 'La Pierre aux neuf gradins'- an outcrop of huge boulders with nine steps carved into the granite.

The tourist office in Bourganeuf offers a good selection of maps for
walking and VTT. You can pick them up at the tourist office & also download them from their web site. They come in different languages, give the distance, time, difficulty and points of interest. These are way-marked routes and are great.

This is also a link for a 65Km route for
walking, VTT or horse/donkey there are suggestions of places to stay on route so you can take as long as you like. The route comes through Chignat so we can also be a starting point.

So good luck and happy walking and if you are part of a club then why not bring a group?
No better place to use as a base, good food, comfy beds, lovely gardens, sympathetic hosts .....

LAC DE VASSIVIERE (Our local tourist hot spot)

A 30 km shore path has been created around the lake for hikers and mountain bike riders.
Don’t worry if you are not a sports enthusiast: there are shorter shore path variants too.

FREE TAXI BOATS operate on the lake every day from April to October. You can go for a walk and use the taxis to shorten your walk.
You can download a booklet
Sentier de Rives for the full 30K walk.

We do not find the Lac de Vassiviere web site easy to negotiate but you can try.

However this is a link for the press PRESS KIT; it gives a good overview and has links for almost everything at the lake.
