About the neighbourhood
3 miles away is the world famous Asinerie du Baudet du Poitou (Poitou Donkey Farm) home of the rasta donkeys and Zoodysee wild life park in Chize is a 15 minute drive away.
Water sports, including paddle boarding, water skiing, kayaking and canoeing are a 25 minute drive away
Ideally situated to be within a 60 minute drive of a number of historic and beautiful towns including La Rochelle, Royan and Rochefort as well as equally gorgeous, but lesser known beaches such as Fouras and Chatelaillon Plage. Stunning Charente towns worth a visit include Cognac, Jarnac, Saintes, Niort, and Angouleme .
We provide each gite with a large pack of information on the local area and have range of maps including cycle and walking routes.
