Trip Planner: Europe / France / Nouvelle-Aquitaine / Creuse / Franseches / Les Amis de la Pierre de Masgot
Les Amis de la Pierre de Masgot is a 19th-century village that was transformed by stonemason Francois Michaud into a sculptural garden filled with granite animals, human figures, and decorative forms. Through his time, skill, and dedication, Michaud turned a common village into a museum of three-dimensional art. Here you will find statues carved into walls, roofs, and gates.

The House of the artist, with the hiking trail that bypasses the village through woods are probably the most interesting points of this stop. It should be noted the presence of a tourism office, supposed to inform visitors; What a pity that the young attendant, yet not overwhelmed in the beginning of September, we have appeared tired, very tired in the morning, so tired, so tired that she could not leave his seat to present products of his shop we were talking about that she has not even thought to offer audio guides. It's heartbreaking!

Not to be missed if you are in the Creuse b
Sylvie LSeptember 1, 2017We first did the Terra Aventura circuit in and around the village. Then we have solved the riddle of the crime to the village of the Masgot. That was awesome. Kudos to the people who do live here with as much dynamism. Very friendly staff. Lovely place. Eager to return to a course of sculpture...
Jean-Marie MeyerJuly 20, 2017Very beautiful village, the visit is that feet, cars remain outside the village. Possibility to eat on the go and have a drink.
