At an altitude of 600 metres La Appassionata is Nestled in the quiet Hamlet of Le Maizouniaux within the heart of the beautiful natural Park des Millevaches. As well as offering you the opportunity to discover the tranquillity of the Creuse area, it boasts many cycle paths and walks of differing lengths and capabilities. Travel the exceptionally quiet roads and visit the many historical and beauty sites on offer. Close by you will find Lac de Vassivière and Lac Lavaud Galade, the latter ideal for lazy days fishing swimming and kayaking. Valliere, just 10 minutes drive away, offers a variety of local shops including a traditional boulangerie, pharmacy and one typically French brocant. 30 minutes out you will find Aubusson, strewn with french coffee shops and bars, and the world renowned Tapestry Museum. Follow the back streets and find hidden gems that allow you to sit and enjoy views of the river creuse while sipping that glass of red or a more subtle coffee with maybe a cognac chaser! For the days when the weather may not be so kind pay a visit to the new beautiful indoor swimming pool. Other towns close by both offering fantastic weekly markets are Bourganeuf and Felletin. Site seeing finished, relax in the garden, overlooking our meadow/garden and woodland. or enjoy the local walks to be found on your doorstep. The area is a haven for those seeking the peace and quiet to allow for reflection, or writers that wish to lose themselves within their own thoughts.
