The one bedroom apartment is situated on the ground floor of a former parsonage (presbytère) in the heart of of a beautiful town in the stunning department of La Creuse.
The living room comes equipped with a television and DVD player, so should you fancy a quiet night in you can watch a film, or play your CDs. It has a very comfortable 3-seater sofa, which can be opened out for use as a second bed, and an armchair. The whole room is light, airy and bright.
The kitchen has everything you should need, including microwave, toaster, kettle, etc. The breakfast bar is the perfect place to eat at any time of the day, or to hang out and play games, or just have a chat over a glass of wine (or three).
The bedroom is comfortable and spacious enough for an armchair, should you want to sit by the window and read.
The shower room is of a good size, is modern and clean.
Outside the entrance is a very wide footpath. Whilst this is not private it is not used very often by pedestrians, and we have spent many an evening having a drink outside, and have even had a barbeque there.
The apartment is set back from a quiet road, with ample parking and is less than a minutes walk away from the beautiful town square, with it's cafés, pizzeria, restaurant, small supermarket and banks (with cash machines). The post office is just a minutes walk away. The train station is only 2 minutes walk away, and taxi office only a minute away.
Felletin is the gateway to the plateau de Millevaches and is surrounded by beautiful countryside, forests and lakes. La Creuse is a great destination for walkers, cyclists, anglers and (due to it's year round beauty) photographers. Felletin is the perfect base to explore the region, and with it's beautiful churches, and other buildings, it has a lot to see without going anywhere.
The water in Felletin is eau de source which means the water coming out of the taps is the same water you buy in bottles... no chemicals this comes straight from the mountains. It is this water which helps provide Fellis with it's lovely flavour - the beer is brewed in a microbrewery in the town.
The town hosts a world music and dance festival many other fêtes, and special journées in the summer months and hosts a bustling market every friday. In winter there is a Christmas market. In the autumn the whole region goes "champignon crazy", as mushroom picking is taken very seriously here.
The town square, and the quiet cobbled streets that lead from it, has everything you need; cafés, bars, restaurants, boulangeries, pâtisseries, two small (but surprisingly well stocked and reasonable) supermarkets, banks, gift shops, and a tourist information office. There is also a larger supermarket on the town outskirts, which is also walkable.
The churches are really worth a look for the architecture, and the town has various other little delights such as a former diamond processing plant.
Felletin is as renowned for it's tapestry as it's neighbour Aubusson, and you can go and see how it is done.
The river Creuse flows by Felletin, and many a fantastic evening can be had sitting on the banks of the river sipping a glass of champagne, and eating some locally produced cheese on delicious french bread.
La Creuse is a wonderful place to visit. Not only do you get to explore the best of the Limousin region, you are also on the border of the Auvergne. You are only an hours drive from the Puy de Dome. This breathtaking area is well worth a visit. Stunning.
La Creuse is one of the three department that makes up the region of Limousin in the centre of France. It is right next to the Auvergne region and the Puy-de-Dôme (a beautiful range of volcanoes) are only a one hour (rather scenic ) drive away from Felletin (it is well worth a visit).
La Creuse is a beautiful, tranquil, and rural part of France. It is underpopulated and still undiscovered by many British and other tourists, which means that even in the summer months you don’t get stuck in traffic.
It is perfect for people who like touring in their cars, motorbikes or bicycles or walkers and hikers. There is plenty for the nature lovers to look out for and the spectacular Plateau de Millevaches is a great place to spend any season.
La Creuse is known as the “French lake district” and has hundreds of lakes. Those who enjoy fishing, kayaking, windsurfing or boating will not be disappointed. Lac de Vassivière is a huge lake, which has all your watersports needs catered for, including hiring of equipment.
You will find lots of fêtes all through the year, and in the summer months there is barely a village or a hamlet that isn't offering something to see. From music festivals, to bread festivals, from antique markets to normal markets there is always something going on somewhere!
Come and check out Felletin "the gateway to the Plateau de Millevaches", we will be happy to be your hosts - you won't be disappointed.
