The department is a rural paradise; offering rolling hills intersected by steep valleys. The area has plateaux, forests, lakes & rivers - attracting visitors in search of the great outdoors. The woodlands are dominated by oak, ash, chestnut, hazel and prune trees.

Rent a self catering holiday home in Creuse and visit Aubusson, another important Creuse town which is well-known for its tapestry and carpets that have been famous throughout the world since the 14th century. There is a famous collection of Aubusson tapestries at Vallon-Pont-d'Arc. The Creuse River runs across the department from the northeast to the northwest and it was the clear waters of the Creuse that enabled Aubusson to become a centre for making the coloured dyes used for tapestries & rugs.

A historically rich and traditionally rural lightly-populated area with beautiful preserved landscapes, ancient and typical art de vivre, original stone architecture, no major urban centre and many heritage site such as castles, abbeys and Celtic stone monuments: the Creuse department has become a Green tourism destination since the late 1990s.

The major tourist attractions for those who rent a holiday house in the Creuse include the tapestry museum in Aubusson and the many castles, notably those of Villemonteix, Boussac, and Banizette. The monastery of Moutier-d'Ahun has exceptional wood carvings from the 17th century. Creuse is also home to a large animal park named Les Loups de Chabrières containing some of France's few remaining wolves, held in semi-captivity. It includes European Grey Wolves, Canadian White Wolves and two Canadian Black Wolves in five distinct enclosures.
