Éguzon-Chantôme (Limousin: Aguson e Chantòsma) is a commune in the Indre department in central France.

It is situated on the river Creuse. A nearby hydroelectric dam (the Éguzon Dam), opened in 1923, provides electricity and also creates a lake (Lac de Chambon) 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.
