The village of Saint-Georges-Nigremont, perched on the Nigremont (Black Mountain) at an altitude of 746 m and at the end of a small, winding road, offers an exceptional panoramic view of the Crocq region and the Monts d'Auvergne from its orientation table.
Go for a walk around this village, a typical example of the expertise of the masons of the Creuse area. Its terraced gardens and panoramic views of the Monts d'Auvergne are worth a visit.

2 points of interest

  • Small patrimony


    The bakery of the former presbytery, restored and very complete, with its oven, its bujadier (ancestor of the washing machine), and its vegetable garden cut in granite is characteristic of the know-how of the masons of the Creuse.
  • Heritage site

    Fontaine de Grancher

    In this granite land where water flows everywhere, the fountains mark the village’s identity. Right up to the twentieth century, a tradition continues: that of giving a gift to the fountain every New Year’s Day to ensure its good flow.


Depart from the church square. Go down the terrace steps, cross the municipal road, and to the left of the cross take the "schoolchildren's path" which runs alongside the cemetery.

  4. After the village, follow the path on the right.
  5. Turn right again onto the path that leads to the Grancher brook.

  8. After the wood, turn left onto the path that goes back up, and go through the village of Les Ecures.
