Many road-maps are available for walkers. A nice starting point for an adventurous walk is the viaduct de Rocherolles, a 54 m high railway viaduct over the river Gartempe, built in the middle of the XIX century. You can follow the river and there is a chance you may see a kingfisher or a black-bellied dipper. You might even be really lucky and see some otters. Walking in the  ‘Monts d’Ambazac’ provides you with beautiful views of the countryside.  Here you can walk for hours without seeing anybody. On your walks you can often meet deer. And why not follow a part of one of the Limousin routes of the pilgrimage of St. Jacques to Santiago de Compostella.
Art-lovers; If you are an art-lover, you will enjoy being surrounded by art, while sitting in the gallery having breakfast.

Birdwatchers are perfectly placed on the terrace in front of the apartment or somewhere in the garden to see among others the following birds;  goldfinches, hedge-sparrows, several kinds of tits, robins, black redstarts, stonechats, spotted flycatchers, linnets and twites, greenfinches, etc. In summertime the sky is full off swallows and sometimes House Martins, they come to drink and bath in the little pond. You can see green woodpecker as well as great and lesser spotted woodpecker and if you are lucky the hoopoe and the golden oriole, the red-backed shrike, the hen-harrier, the red and black kite, kestrel, and of course the buzzard Near the river Gartempe the kingfisher and the black-bellied dipper may also be seen. In the evening all kinds of owls can be heard. Early springtime and in the middle of automn cranes come over on their migration route to and from Extremadura in Spain. Unforgettable.!!
In the garden you can find his sculptures and fountains in bronze.
