Planning a visit to La Creuse for the first time
Hello all. I posted on here a few months ago about the fact we are currently living in the Charente near Verteuil Sur Charente, but are looking to sell up and move once our renovation is finished. We are planning a trip to La Creuse to check it out as it has been recommended to us by a Brit who used to live in the north west area of La Creuse. We have never been to La Creuse, but we are planning a long weekend trip in early November. We would like to check out the area around Crozant and Fresselines. We are also planning to go to Gueret, Bourganeuf, Aubusson and to Lake Vassiviere in the south. Can anyone recommend any other areas or places we should have a look at?
We are looking for a green landscape with big hills, forests and lots of water (rivers and lakes). We have found our first summer in the Charente to be too hot and dusty. The area of the Charente we are in is also heavily agricultural (arable farming) and this does not appeal to us. I suppose we are looking for a wilder more rugged landscape (like mid Wales but without so much rain!!). We don't mind being remote and tucked away, in fact that really appeals to us.
Cheers Paul and Jackie
