About Robert Shaw

I grew up in London and lived there until I was 27. Having spent many holidays in La Creuse as a child I decided to buy my own property there. I renovated two properties including this one. I am self employed in the UK and divide my time between Worcestershire and La Creuse

Robert Shaw purchased this farmhouse in 2002

Why Robert Shaw chose Viersat

I lived in London most my life and wanted to be somewhere with low population and space. The area and property were ideal. It is quiet and peaceful but Montlucon is only a short drive and provides everything I need.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Being able to enjoy open space and the countryside. Rivers and lakes and country walks. The area is ideal for people with children who wish to explore nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely stay, best house in France. Thanks for letting us share your lovely gite, Hope to be back to see you again. Found some nice places of interest. It was nice meeting Rob and his family, most friendly people. Bob and Margaret



We have had a relaxing and enjoyable week greatly helped by Robert's advice about places to see and restaurants for good meals. We especially enjoyed the Coq d'Or. Food delicious and staff friendly. We have been coming to France for 30 years and have rented over 25 Gites and this is definitely one of the very best. It's roomy,and tastefully and superbly renovated. Everything has been thought of and we would definitely recommend it as a marvellous base to explore the area. It's comfortable and welcoming, and though it was cold most days with some crisp frosts the gite was warm and the fire is easy to manage. John and Molly

There is also a bowling alley and recently an aqua center has been built about 15 minutes away from the property. Near Gueret there is a wolf park. Many of the local towns have a selection of restaurants.

Les Pierres Jaumatres near Toulx ste Croix is an area of outstanding natural beauty and the summit offers stunning views across the Creuse, the rocks are steeped in legend with tales of an ancient lost city, buried treasure and fairies. At the same site is Parcours Aventure, similar to Go Ape. There is also an excellent restaurant here with a large terrace overlooking La Creuse.

The view from the front of the property is across rolling hills and fields. There is a vast amount of Flora and Fauna in the immediate area including many birds of prey, deer and wild boar.

La Creuse is becoming more popular for holiday makers but still remains unspoilt. Some of the attractions include the town of Aubusson, famous for its tapestries.

Great Holiday Cottage, Lovely locaion. Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely. The perfect size with a lovely garden for the kids to play in. A downstairs bathroom with big bath was a god send with 2 babies, 2 children and an additional teenager!!!! Rob and his Dad were fabulous. Very friendly and full of very useful information about the area. Ask Rob's Dad about places to visit, he is better than the tourist information!! The house is really close to local shops for supplies and the larger town of Montlucon is a short drive away. There are some beautiful little villages close by to have a walk round too if that is your thing! We will definitely be returning for another holiday. Thanks you for a great holiday.

Very Happy Parents with 5 happy children!!

Kay, Graham & the tribe!

Charmant gîte en Creuse

  • 3 of 5

location aménagée avec goût, il faut toutefois apprécier la campagne et le calme mais à proximité il y a des visites intéressantes à faire: tout à côté Les Pierres Jaumâtres (accrobranche, poneys...) l'étang des Landes ,Guéret (les loups de Chabrières), Aubusson et ses tapisseries, Ahun et son Moulin , ) des marchés locaux , brocantes etc... , il y a donc à faire et à voir en Creuse contrairement à des idées reçues! N'oubliez pas Montluçon dans le proche Allier avec ses vieux quartiers et son château, Mu Pop musée dédié à la musique visité par Polnareff récemment et Moulins un peu plus loin (musée du costume de scène, maison Mantin etc...)

N.B il faut payer en "pounds" non en euros...
