Log cabin in country setting, fully equipped for your self catering needs including towels and linen. Large solar heated swimming pool. Laundry. This is one of four log cabins in the park.

La Coterie Lodges is situated at the edge of a quiet hamlet, but just 20 minutes from Gueret, the capital of La Creuse, or 30 minutes from Aubusson, Limousins centre for tapestry. Our setting is in the countryside, but we are only 4km from the N145, the main east/west route through France, enabling easy access to your daily destinations, and total peace and quiet, if you prefer to spend the day by the pool.

Our lodges are ideally located for exploring market villages, chateaux, and the lakes, which also have beaches and water sports in the summer months, or visit the mysterious Rocks of Jaumatres which has been a great hit wth previous guests, particularly the tree walking activity in the park which adults and kids alike have enjoyed. Other great hits have been the Giant Maze in Gueret which also has plenty of activities, and Vulcania situated in the Volcanoes of the Puy Dome, which although comparitively a long drive, has been well worth a days visit.

Spend the day strolling around the country lanes or visiting one of the local towns, then return for a late afternoon swim in our large pool (which also has a sliding enclosure which means you can swim even in rain) Relax with sundowners on your private terrace and an evening meal listening to the owls and watching the moon rise over your lodge, or try one of the fantastic restaurants in the area.

Alternatively, if you are a horserider, join me on a trail ride on one of 2 available horses for hacks. Please bring european insurance cover for horseriding activities and your own riding gear. Let us know when booking that you are interested in horseriding. Over 13's only. 13-15 year olds must be accompanied by a parent either riding or walking.

Cycling is also an excellent activity in the area with quiet lanes and well maintained farm tracks. Cycle hire can be arranged and local ordnance survey maps are available.

The area is also excellent for fishing with 2 public fishing lakes within 8km. Licences can be easily bought at the local bar/tabac and we hold maps showing all the fishing areas.

The Limousin region

The Limousin region boasts beautiful countryside, and woodland, and river walks through gorges on the Cruese river and around the 3 lakes of the the Creuse.

Lac Vassiviere, the largest lake in France covering 1000 hectares, 300km of walks and 45km of shoreline is approximately 1 hours drive to the north of the lake.

The chateaux of Boussac and Villemonteix are within 20 minutes drive.

The tapestry town of Aubusson is within 30 minutes and Limoges, famous for its enamelware is 1 hour's drive.

We have an interactive map on our web site which will enable you to find us and locate the many activities, sightseeing, restaurants and shopping there is in the area before you arrive.

Additionally, we provide a welcome pack on arrival which contains suggested days out and places to visit, plus we keep a number of brochures on site.


Gueret is the capital of the Creuse department and boasts a large town square and a pedestrianised shopping area. Markets are held in the town square every Thursday and Saturday morning and are well worth a visit.

Lac Courtille in Gueret provides pleasure activities in summer including boating and pedalos, and has a beach and children's play area.

The wolf park and maze in Gueret also provide a great day out for the kids.

La Coterie has 3 lakes nearby in Chatelus Malvaleix, Jarnages, and Chenerailles, all containing children's play parks, beaches, and some contain cordoned off swimming areas for children and adults alike.

The Rocks of Jaumatres are a fascinating and mysterious walk through large granite rocks sculptured by the ice age and are 20 minutes drive. Alternatively try the Cascades d'Augerolles which is a medium walk through gorges and forests finding ancient watermills and the waterfall that feeds the area - approximately 45 minute drive.

There are many walking, cycling and horseriding routes around La Coterie which provide various terrain from lakes, to views, to pretty hamlets. There is also an opportunity to explore the local area from horse and cart - a family outing of 5 max for 2-3 hours.
