OFFERS MORE THAN YOU THINK
The Creuse is one of the least populated regions in France.
Silence and wild nature are what makes this region unique.
However, this region does offer a large choice of activities, places to visit and attractions,
for adults and above all for children. On this page you will find a few, all a couple of minutes by foot to 45 minute in the car from the Abbaye. For more information you can click on the official websites.
CYCLING, CYCLOCROSS, MOUNTAIN BIKING
The Creuse department is rich with single-track mountain bike slopes.
You can find around 2300 kms of marked trails.
For those who prefer pedaling on the asphalt: the roads are well maintained and there is (almost) no traffic. We do not have the steep passes, but it is never flat, so you will easily reach your desired elevation gain.
It is possible to rent (electric) mountainbikes. It is a must to make your reservation well in advance.
On this website you will find over 200 commented tracks withGPX-files to download.
HIKING: 5, 10, 15, 20 OR MORE KMS
La Creuse, the green heart of France with its hilly side-wing scenery, is a true paradise for hikers.
There are over 2.500 kms of hiking trails. Long distance trails as well as short walks for a day or an afternoon.
Some trails start from the abbey. Others can be reached by a short car ride.
On this website you will find over 132 trails with their GPX-files to download.
