The department of La Creuse is a beautiful rural area of France, situated to the north of the "Massif Central" with it's mountains and extinct volcanoes. Boasting 1200 kms of rivers and 1,000 hectares of lakes, many with watersport facilities and safe bathing, it is the ideal area for a relaxing and very "French" holiday. There is plenty going on in the summer months if you so wish. You can have an adventure in thel trees moving through the woods at tree top height (roped up of course) You can visit the wolf park, volcania, Lots of brocantes and Fetes, visit castles galore, markets and lovely walks, the scenery is superb. The nearby "Circuit de Romanticism" gives you an insight in to the life of Georges Sands the famed 19th century diarist, novelist and lover of Chopin. This is a great place to 'get away from it all' relax and unwind.
The nearest man made beach is only 15 minutes away at Chateleus Malveleix. Gueret is the department's capital town with it's many shops and restaurants. It also has a wolf park and labyrinth and weekly market. La Chatre is a quaint and pretty town. With it's cobbled streets, bars and restaurants,Saturday market and beautiful indoor/outdoor swimming pools, it is well worth a visit. Close by, Montgivray, a small and charming village, holds a renowned 2 day Jazz festival in July. There are also many "Brocantes" and special fete days held throughout the Spring and Summer months. Plenty of places of beauty and historical interest to visit including Oradour-sur-Glane the martyred village of WW2, Gargilesse the artist's village and one of France's most picturesque villages, Saint Benoit du Sault, all within easy driving distance.

"Le Chirons: Fantastic"
The house was superb, extremly spacious with all amenaties whilst retaining the true appeal of a French house.
The gardens are very large and child friendly, with the pool a delight on hot summer days.
Terri and Kieth were great hosts, nearby and very helpful with all our questions whilst not being the slightest intrusive.
The surrounding areas are picturesque with huge amounts to do should you wish
I would have no doubts in recommending Le Chirons to anybody, certainly a 10 out of 10
Great to meet you all, thanks for your kinds words and hope to see you again next year!

"Our time at Les Chirons was everything we could have wished for and more!"
The house and gardens were really lovely and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners Terry and Keith. The place was lovely and clean, very comfortable and peaceful. We enjoyed our little trips out in the mornings but always returned to spend the afternoons and evenings back at home. I call it home as there was everything we needed at Les Chirons, we even used the pool during the warm afternoons. The little village just down the road La Cellette (very small but friendly) was a nice quiet place to have a nice cold beer or a glass of nice French wine and they also served good food in the one and only resturant. We had a very nice holiday and will visit Les Chirons again.
It was a pleasure to meet you both and thank you for your kind words.
