Barrou

Barrou is a village on the river Creuse, downstream of Yzeures. It has a population of just over 400 people, a Boulangerie, a few other small shops, and a very nice - if somewhat short - terrace and walk along the river.

We have driven through the village a couple of times, usually while taking guests to see the Château at la Guerche. This Christmas we stopped and had a wander along the river. We do like the rivers in this part of France. Coming from a part of Queensland more noted for its droughts than anything else, even after 10 years in London we get a frisson looking at wide, slow flowing water.


Here is a map of how to get there on the picturesque route from Preuilly-sur-Claise.
