Le Marais Poitevin, also well-known as the Venice verte, very lovely, boat hire available to explore the small rivers and canals, great for a day out.

Futuroscope, an interactive theme park near Poitiers interesting for all ages, great fun.

Vallée de Singes, (the valley of the apes) keep hold of your hat and sun glasses!

There are many small zoos, animal parks and theme parks to visit.

The 'Velorail', traveling by pedal power, have fun and get fit!

Aquatic centre, with diving, hamman facilities and a good restaurant, Numerous medieval towns, Romanesque churches, chateaux and gardens are all worth visiting.

Horse riding centre, tennis courts, swimming pools, kayaking/canoes for hire on the River Charantes, lake fishing, and lake beach are all close by.

The area is well known for cycling and hiking, there being 2 cycle routes just 50 meters from our entrance to choose from.

We do have a number of bicycles on site, for hire at reasonable rates.

Alternatively another wonderful way to explore the countryside is cruising in a classic convertible. We have two for hire at daily or longer term rates. Great fun with that ‘wind in the hair’ experience

Through-out the year there are festivals and traditional markets within easy driving distance.

In the gite there is a folder with extensive information about markets, places of interest and leisure activities.

Or maybe you prefer to stay home enjoy a massage and relax. A great way of easing some of the tensions of modern life.

We are always available to help and advice, please don't be shy, it's what we are here for.
