About the neighbourhood
Although we are in a rural location, local amenities are just a 5 minute drive away. The local market town of Civray holds two weekly markets and has several lovely bars and restaurants. It also has two excellent bakers and other shops. Lich bar is great for live music in the summer. For music lovers, Civray also hosts a large music festival, le fils du son at the end of July. There is plenty of canoeing locally and we recommend nearby Ruffec for this. The famous Futuroscope at Poitiers is great for a family day out as is Valleé des Singes, a 15 minute drive.
