The town boasts the Musée de la Chemiserie - the Museum of “elegance Masculine” , as well as a swimming complex & tennis courts.


Museum
In nearby St Marcel, the Argentomagus is a “must do” visit reflecting the area’s ancient Galo-Roman history. The Roman city of Argentomagus was located in the Mersans plateau, at the strategic point where a Roman bridge once traversed the River Creuse. The Latin name of the city meant "Silver Market." The modern city of Argenton takes its name from the ancient site of Argentomagus. See here for more information. 

The Brenne National Park
The Brenne national park is a 1,672 km2 (646 sq mi) area located in the département of the Indre and was established in 1982. Originally, La Brenne was a region in the old French provinces of Berry and Touraine, lying west of Châteauroux and east of Tournon-Saint-Martin. The park is cut in two by the Creuse River. Through the southern half flows the Anglin River. Historically, the southern part of the regional park is not really part of La Brenne. This part is called La petite Brenne. Historically, it was part of the Boischaut region. For more information see here.

Lake Chambon
The Lac de Chambon (Chambon Lake) is an artificial lake on the Creuse River, created by the Eguzon dam, a hydroelectric dam. Beaches have been created around the lake, the largest in the Centre Region. There is a sailing school on the lake near Eguzon. Canoes, kayaks and pedalos can be hired in season. The lake is also very popular with waterskiers and anglers.
