Set in ideal cycling & walking country, we have some bikes available for guests use. The historic town of Fontenay le Comte sitting astride the River Vendee is 15min away with numerous restaurants, château & churches. Superb Atlantic beaches with surfing are within an hour's drive as is the chic city of La Rochelle. Our nearby villages of Vouvant with its artists colony and ramparts and Foussais Payre with its Romanesque church are waiting to be explored.
You can be as active or as lazy : when staying at our bungalow as you wish. Lazing by the pool is good, but we are quite active cyclists, walkers and swimmers, so can share with you details of hilly or flat cycle routes, approximate times, places of interest and places to stop for refreshment en route. We can also give you jogging, run or walking routes of differing durations and standards. If you are bringing your own bikes, there is lots of secure locked storage space in our garage. Alternatively just lie back and enjoy the pool, which we open generally from June to September.
Good food:: many of the local towns and villages have at least one restaurant all waiting for you to discover the richness of the local cuisine: St Hilaire des Loges (3km); St Michel le Cloucq ((4km); Coulonges sur l'Autize (8km), Foussais Payre (8km), Mervent (9km) and, Faymoreau, Vouvant and Fontenay le Comte, all of which are within a 15 min drive.
Places to visit:: We are not really theme park people, but families especially with younger children will love the Parc d'Attractions de Pierre Brune, which is within 10 mins of the bungalow. This is a theme park with a difference set in a beautiful forest glade with slides, swing boats, bumper boats, bouncy castles, rope bridges which will enthral younger children and the young at heart. Further afield is Futuroscope and Puy du Fou.
