      This is the route of the Trois Ballons loop, which begins in Champagney and ends at Planche-des-Belles-Filles, passing through several passes that have become famous thanks to the Tour de France.

      The last Tour of this Collection stretches over 44 kilometers, for nearly 600 meters of elevation gain.From the eighth kilometer, I recommend that you stop to visit the Château de Boussac, a well-preserved building with a rich history.By continuing for about thirty kilometers on the roads of Creuse, you arrive at Chambon-sur-Voueize, and finish the loop of this Tour de Creuse. Before leaving Chambon, enjoy the rich architecture of the city, its old houses and its Roman bridge, listed as a Historic Monument.From here it is easy to get back to Montluçon from where direct trains run to Limoges, Clermont-Ferrand and Bourges.

      This Tour is one of the shortest, but also one of the steepest, with 640 meters of elevation gain and nearly 600 meters of descent.The first twelve kilometers consist of 3 small passes to climb and descend. In Pouligny, you will find the tile-making ecomuseum which offers many activities during the summer season. About ten kilometers further, you reach Bonnat, a small town halfway along the route, where you can find something to eat. At kilometer 34 is Châtelus-Malvaleix, a town that is home to several remarkable houses, fountains and washhouses. Nearby is a pond with a supervised beach in summer, ideal for taking a short break!The Tour stops between the municipalities of Clugnat and Boussac, as some of the nearby accommodation is in each municipality. In all cases, it is advisable to book, as capacities are limited.

      This 47-kilometer Tour has less than 500 vertical meters, one of the least demanding of this Collection.Around the tenth kilometer, take a break to admire the Château de Saint Germain Beaupré. A pretty building which unfortunately cannot be visited. At kilometer 24, do not miss the ruins of Crozant. These ruins are spread over a very large area, which makes it possible to imagine the scale of the fortress when it was in operation.Continuing a few kilometers further, you reach La Celle-Dunoise, a small village located in the heart of the Valley of the Impressionist painters of the Creuse. This valley which stretches to the north of the Creuse has won over many painters, including Claude Monet. "This landscape is so rich that the painter does not know where to stop," said George Sand, discovering the valley of the Creuse at Crozant.At La Celle-Dunoise you can find accommodation nearby, which should be booked.

      This 43-kilometer Tour features more than 500 meters of elevation gain, almost half of which is in the first six kilometers.From the start, you cross the Châtelus bridge and walk along the beach of the same name, along the Thaurion. The beaches are not very numerous in the area, so make the most of them if the weather permits!After six kilometers of ascent, some descents and more modest climbs await you: the roads of Creuse are never flat! Rest a little in Bénévent’Abbaye: this small village full of character is rich in history. Visit its typical Limousin Romanesque abbey and don't miss the Scénovision, which retraces in video the journeys of local personalities from the beginning of the 20th century.The Tour ends in La Souterraine, a town where you will find all kinds of shops and accommodation, as well as a pretty church known for its underground crypt, which gave the town its name.

      This 54-kilometer Tour includes nearly 600 meters of elevation gain. In Creuse, we rarely cover several kilometers of plains without climbing!After visiting Royère-de-Vassivière, I suggest a stop at Lac de Vassivière, which is undoubtedly one of the major tourist attractions of Creuse where you will find water activities, hikes, restaurants and campsites, but also many calm and wild spaces.Continuing for about thirty kilometers, you reach Bourganeuf, a pretty medieval town. The city also offers guided tours of the town, which is very rich in history.About twenty kilometers further, you arrive at Châtelus-le-Marcheix, which offers a stopover and campsite, which I advise you to book.

      The second stage of this Tour is shorter than average, but also a little steeper, with more than 700 meters of elevation gain.Before climbing, visit Aubusson, a city recognized internationally for its historical expertise in tapestries. About ten kilometers further, the Tour takes you to Felletin, a magnificent historic town which is home to many old and well-preserved buildings.After about twenty additional kilometers, I suggest a stop at Lavaud Gelade lake. The place is rather wild and very calm, on the other hand it is only possible to go around the lake on foot or possibly by mountain bike.The Tour ends in Royère-de-Vassivière, halfway between Lac de Lavaud Gelade and Vassivière.

      This first stage starts from Chambon-sur-Voueize, which is located about twenty kilometers from Montluçon via the v87 cycle route. From Chambon, 56 kilometers and around 500 meters of elevation gain await you to reach Aubusson.On the road, the Landes pond and its nature reserve will allow you to observe the local fauna. About ten kilometers further, another body of water punctuates the route with the Pinaud pond.You will see more ponds than towns along this Tour, so plan to eat. On arrival in Aubusson, however, you will find restaurants and accommodation.
