Viaduc du Busseau d’Ahun

Viaduc de Busseau overlooks the Creuse at 57 metres high and 320 metres in length and was built in 1863 and repaired in 1944-45 following damage during the war.

It’s located in Busseau-sur-Creuse, Ahun, Creuse(23), Nouvelle-Aquitane, France, which is about 15 minute drive from our French Bed & Breakfast.

It’s an iron railway bridge, crossing the Creuse River, that is still in use.

We visited the area recently as part of a drive round the local area and had lunch at the Viaduc Restaurant overlooking the viaduct and gorge.  It was a gorgeous day, lovely surroundings and a pleasant lunch.

The restaurant is situated high up on the edge of the gorge with huge picture windows framing a beautiful view. The food was typical french, well cooked and in a lovely location. They offered an extensive menu including a ‘menu du jour’ which is a cheaper lunch menu option.
