Éguzon-Chantôme is a commune in the Indre department in central France.

It is situated on the Creuse River. A nearby hydroelectric dam (the Eguzon dam), opened in 1923, provides electricity and also creates a lake (Chambon Lake) that is used for leisure and watersports.

Geography[edit]

The river Abloux forms all of the commune's western border and the Creuse, with the Chambon Lake, forms all of its eastern border.
