Overlooking the Petite Creuse valley from the top of its rocky promontory, the magnificent Boussac castle, built in the 12th century and then seriously damaged during the Hundred Years war, was rebuilt in the 15th century by Jean de Brosse, companion of Joan of Arc. This romantic place was in the 19th century a source of inspiration for the writer George Sand, who used to stay there regularly to write the novel "Jeanne" among other things.
Nowadays, visitors have access to the Guards' Room and George Sand's bedroom, and can enjoy seeing the furniture, wooden panelling and old tapestries.
During the summer season, the castle exhibits contemporary Aubusson tapestries.
