The Creuse is the green heart of France and also sparsely populated. It is one of the most beautiful areas of France. With the rolling hills, stone walls, wild hedges and lanes of old trees. Mass tourism has not yet reached this region. This is why the region is still really authentic.

Our farmhouse is situated on a domain of more than 13 hectares and consists of lined meadows, avenues with ancient oaks, forests and a babbling brook. It is the ultimate place to relax. Once, the farm was part of the Beaufort castle at the top of the hill.
Because we are halfway up a southern slope, it warms up quickly and there is remarkably little wind here.

As a nature lover, you can really indulge yourself here. Endless walks over quiet country roads and through leafy woods. The rich flora and fauna includes many species that are rare in the Netherlands.
Characteristic are the trees overgrown with oak moss, which is a sign of the excellent air quality. The Creuse has the best air quality in all of France.

We have a small-scale cosy holiday paradise consisting of a gite, mobile home and mini camping site. We also rent out a "chambre d'hote" and serve various meals including breakfast, picnic basket, BBQ and informal dinners a la table d'hotes.

Boussac is a small town 8 kilometres away. Perched on its rocky promontory high above the Petite Creuse valley, the magnificent chateau of Boussac, built in the 12th century and badly damaged during the Hundred Years War, was rebuilt in the 15th century by Jean de Brosse, companion of Joan of Arc. In the 19th century, this romantic place inspired the writer George Sand, who stayed there regularly and wrote her novel "Jeanne". Today, you can discover the waiting room, George Sand's room, as well as the furniture, antique woodwork and tapestries during a visit.
The famous goblin tapestries "The Lady and the Unicorn" come from here and were declared Unesco World Heritage in 2009.
Every Thursday morning, there is a large regional market where the many local products are offered.

The chapel of Saint Martin. Where Toulx-Sainte-Croix is now, there was a settlement of Tullum in Gallo-Roman times. It is suspected that a Gallo-Roman sanctuary once stood where the ruined Saint Martin's chapel is today. The Romanesque church is one of the oldest in the Creuse. The granite sanctuary has sculpted lion figures and limestone sarcophagi from the Merovingian period (450-750).
From the watchtower, you have a splendid view of the surrounding meadows. On a clear day, you can even see as far as the 7 departments of the Berry and the Auvergne, and even the Puy de Dome.

On the mountain Barlot are les Pierres Jaumaitres. These enchanting granite colossi seem to have been put there by someone. There are many wild stories about who that might have been. Some talk about giants and others about witches, druids and fairies. Each rock also has its own name, such as the seesaw, the frog, sugar loafers, the chapel and the devil's cradle.
The moss-covered stone walls and the chestnut forest create a mystical atmosphere.
In the adjacent tree climbing park, you can climb various courses or play laser games. Afterwards, you can enjoy a well-deserved drink on the restaurant terrace.

Other towns worth visiting in the neighbourhood are, MONTLUCON, GOUZON, AUBUSSON, LE CHATRE, EVAUX LES BAINS, GUERET, AHUN, LIMBOGES, ORADOUR SUR GLANE and many others.

We have a folder with all kinds of brochures and leaflets of the places of interest in the area.

..... Or you can just laze around by the pool!

    mevr deze vraag houd geen verband met jullie verblijven maar ik las dat jullie vele dieren houden en vermits 2 van onze kippen zijn overleden zijn wij op zoek naar 2 nieuwe jonge legkippen om die bij onze 2 anders toe te voegen..via le boncoin zijn de afstanden heel ver verwijderd van waar wij wonen(saint palais) 10 km van boussac daarom vonden wij jullie adres om te vragen of jullie nu of in het vroege voorjaar 2 jonge kipjes zouden verkopen aan ons?
    alvast bedankt u kanons berziken via onze mail

    We hebben een super verblijf gehad in le Rianon. De gite is van alles voorzien. Keuken is goed uitgerust, fijn bed en mooie veranda aan de voorkant van het huisje. Het uitzicht is schitterend en erg rustgevend. Wij hebben daar dan ook vrij weinig ondernomen, niettemin zijn er voldoende dingen te doen in de omgeving. De eigenaren zijn erg aardig en komen dagelijks een praatje maken. Het is ook zeker een aanrader om een keertje mee te eten met het gezin. In een woord dus een top verblijf!

    Twee weken bij Rob en Erica gelogeerd in de gite.
    Wij hebben een hele fijne vakantie gehad. Rob en Erica zijn gastvrij. Rob is altijd in voor een praatje. We hebben een mooie wandeling met hem gemaakt, hij vertelt veel over de natuur en dieren.
    Erica kan heerlijk koken, maakt verschillende confiture, erg lekker.
    Le Rianon is een heerlijke plek waar je tot rust komt. Genieten van de natuur en dieren. Zoals het hoort te zijn.
    Geen massa toerisme, een gastheer en vrouw die altijd klaar voor je staan.
    Zeker weer voor herhaling vatbaar!

Restaurants, food & wine

France is of course the Mecca of wines. There are many caves, but also the local supermarkets have an excellent selection of the most delicious wines for every purse.
Once upon a time there were vineyards near SOUMANS but the quality was not very good. And they have given way to agriculture and cattle breeding.

The Limousin is of course famous for its cattle, especially the reddish-brown Limousin cows, but the best are the white Charolais cows that graze outside all year round. This gives the meat a deep red colour and an excellent taste.
Dutch steak is not known here, but a faux filet is a good substitute.
An absolute must is the Fondue Creusoise. These are small bites with melted camembert on top or next to it for dipping.
Chalet Les Pierres Jaumaitres, Bonne Auberge, Central Boussac are recommended in the vicinity.

But you can also join us for a delicious dinner prepared with fresh local produce. Order a picnic basket for a delicious (romantic) lunch on the road. You can also use our breakfast service on your own terrace.


As a nature lover, you will find your heart's content here. Endless walks over quiet country roads and through leafy woods.
The rich flora and fauna includes many species that are rare in the Netherlands.
Walking, cycling, mountain biking, horse riding, swimming, tree climbing, there is too much to do to mention it all.

Enjoy strolling through one of the many markets and brocantes.

Further remarks

On our farm we have many animals, including horses, pigs, dogs, cats, chickens and rabbits. Our chickens scratch around freely in and around the yard for their food and lay the most delicious eggs. Your dog is very welcome but must be kept on a leash in and around the yard.

Horse riding is becoming more and more a lifestyle and why not take your horse with you on holiday? We have enough space on our meadows for this.

This year we have added a few wool pigs to our herd.
