MORE DAYS OUT AND ABOUT

CHÉNÉRAILLES - Château de Villemonteix –Medieval civil building in the middle of the Creuse district, furnished, well worth a visit , beautiful tapestries from Flanders and Aubusson.
Open April to October tel: 55623392

TOULX-SAINTE-CROIX - This is well worth a visit, the Roman church is beautiful and the view from the observation tower is elevating. The Les Pierres Jaumâtres are close by and Boussac is not far either. Makes a great day out.
Several Roman remains.
The church and its separate bell tower, dating from the eleventh century.
The ancient stone cross on the square.
Megaliths known as "Les Pierres Jaumâtres".( listed seperately)
A fifteenth-century château at the hamlet of Maisons.
A fortified manorhouse at Chanon.
The observation tower constructed in 1932 by Abbé Aguillaume.


LES PIERRES JAUMÂTRES - This is a display of 40 rocks scattered on the top of Mont Barlot. An interesting and unusual formation of granite stone is somewhat of a mystery as nobody is quite sure how they arrived here and why they are such a strange shape. Linked to legends of King Arthur, as well being a favourite spot with George Sand and Chopin.



CROZANT - The ruins of the citadel cover a large part of the spur, with several successive ramparts, a square 15th-century donjon and two 13th-century towers plus a chapel and a "tour de l’eau’’ from where water could be raised from the river whilst covered and safe from attack.
The ruins were acquired a few years ago by the commune. A major reconstruction programme was undertaken, with funding from the state, regional and local councils, resulting in the reopening of the site to the public.
From the nineteenth century, the area around Crozant inspired many painters. Perhaps the first was Paul Castans (1823–1892), who inspired Armand Guillaumin (1841–1927), to choose Crozant as his residence of choice. They give birth to the Crozant School (in French, L'Ecole de Crozant).

SEDALL - The Arboretum de la Sédelle (10 hectares) is a private arboretum located in Villejoint, Crozant, Creuse, Limousin, France. It is open FROM 1st May to 31 Oct 14 h00 to 18 h 00
an admission fee is charged. Its a beautiful place and well worth a vist and very clost to Crozant so a nice day out to encompass both.

The arboretum was established in 1980 by Nell and Philippe Wanty on wooded lands along the Sédelle river valley. Maples were the first plantings. Today the arboretum has grown to contain more than 370 taxa of woody plants, including major collections of Acer (130 taxa including 90 species and subspecies, with the remainder cultivars), Viburnum (27 taxa), Quercus (27), Cornus (23), Euonymus (15), Rhus (10), Tilia (9), and Liquidambar (4).
