Fourteen kilometers south east of Argenton-sur-Creuse, the village of Gargilesse, with it’s charming brown tiled roofed houses packed around the Chateau and the Roman Church, hides in the hollow of the river from which it takes it’s name before joining the river Creuse that flows through a savage, deep gorge a few hundred meters further on.
George Sand was the first person to fall under the charm of the village before many others. Arts craftmen, contemporary and impressionist painters came, as she did to take refuge, work and create.
A result of the spendid isolation of the Berry and Limousine regions. Gargilesse is a village where time seems to have stopped, out of reach of history. Even so, it is in this village where tomorrow’s history will be made, with the marriage of cultural inheritance and creation.
