About the neighbourhood
The Barn at Vijon is located within 14km of Sainte Severe to the North and Boussac (Creuse) to the South. La Chatre is approximately 25 minutes drive and Montlucon around 45 minutes. The Gite is close to the area of the 3 lakes and is less than 30 minutes from Maison De George Sand at Nohant. Restaurants at Sainte Severe, Boussac, Nouzerines and La Celette provide vistors with plenty of culinary delights. The local area is ideal for walkers and for cyclists with quiet country lanes and stunning countryside views. There are many churches, chateaux and historic buildings within the vicinity and our detailed tourist information available at the Gite helps visitors make the most of their time in the area.
