Walking in the Creuse

The Creuse is a paradise for walkers, with footpaths of all kind criss-crossing this beautiful countryside. From Chez Jallot’s doorstep you have access to kilometres of walking and running trails, from the sedate 20-minute stroll to give to you an appetite before dinner, to 3- or 4-day hikes following some of the official French long-distance footpaths. One of these, GR4, passes Chez Jallot only 500m up the road and around Lake Vassivière, there is a complete web of footpaths to explore. There is something to suit all levels of walker.

There are hidden treasures to find, flora & fauna to see and often history to unearth. As a family activity, geo-caching is also very popular and well-organised across the department (see Terra Aventura for more details) and can be incorporated into many of the walks. You can even hire a donkey (a favourite with families) and have it as a companion on your walk!

I even offer a number of multi-day walking packages that may be of interest (“Waterfalls, Moors and Peatlands”, the “Voie de Rocamadour”, “A Taste of GR4” and “Three Days Heading North or South (GR46)”)…

Each footpath below details the maps required, if any, however, I have a selection of maps here at Chez Jallot that I make available on loan. If you are considering a day-walk, then I am more than happy to provide picnics and depending upon how busy I am, if you would like to attempt a one-way path, I will certainly endeavour to provide a pick-up service for you.

Come and enjoy the walking the area has to offer…

The Creuse is by no means a mountainous area but walking the undulating countryside and forests will definitely be exercise. Forest tracks can be muddy and in places strewn with tree roots, so a pair of walking boots or ankle-supporting shoes are recommended for the longer paths.
