About the property

FR21798

Traditional gite in idyllic setting, in peaceful established garden overlooking small lake, available to fish & well stocked with Carp & Roach etc. Ideal for the keen fisherman. Bicycles are available to use free of charge yet is within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and markets of the ancient 'Cité d'Ecrit' on the River Gartempe. Free WiFi is available. Walking, cycling or just browsing in old bookshops. Local public swimming pool within a 5 minute walk away consisting of indoor & outdoor pools. Truly rural yet within 1 hours drive of beautiful Limoges and Poitiers. Local attractions are plentiful such as kayaking & velo-railing. Nearby is the market town of Chauvigny with a huge and bustling market on Thursdays and Saturdays by the river bank. Above it, in the old town, are five medieval castles to explore as well as the brightly painted St Pierre church. In the main square are two very popular restaurants. The high-tech film and science leisure park Futuroscope (http://en.futuroscope.com) with its towering cinema pavilions set in landscaped, fountain-filled gardens (the latter are the focus of a sunset laser show), is definitely one of the star tourist attractions of the Vienne. You need at least a day to see it and as well as all the attractions it has plenty of restaurants and cafes so you can stop and re-fuel along the way! There are a number of animal-themed attractions too.

A great day out, especially if you have children, is the Vallée des Singes, where a variety of monkeys and apes including gorillas lives in natural surroundings. Nearby is the new La Planete des Crocodiles, where you can see 200 of the reptiles from all over the world, in five biospheres (glass domes) that reflect their native continents. Given its history, it’s not surprising that the Vienne is known for its Romanesque architecture, the most famous site being the Abbey Church of Saint-Savin-sur-Gartempe, a UNESCO world heritage site that’s nicknamed the ‘Romanesque Sistine Chapel’. For those who love messing about on or by the water, the Vienne river offers plenty of choice with prime places for fishing as well as swimming, canoeing and even yachting. There are also a number of fine golf courses near Poitiers and elsewhere in the Vienne. And of course, this being France, you’re guaranteed good food. A local speciality is goat’s cheese – make sure you try Chabis or Chabichou, both of which have been awarded Protected Designation of Origin – the French AOC. Another major attraction is the wine of the Vienne. Wine has been made in this region for hundreds of years. And though the wines of the Haut-Poitou as they are known don’t quite have the cache of those further north in the Loire Valley, there are some excellent red, white and rosé wines to be found here.
