About this location
The Poitou-Charentes region
The Deux Sevres region is situated in the south west of France and it is famous for its micro climate and unspolit countryside where driving/riding is actually a pleasure.
There are many places to visit of historical interest and we are very centrally located to places like Cognac, for its several distillaries offering guided tours including the famous Hennessy, Martell and Remy Martin, La Rochelle for its fantastic harbour, shops and harbour-side restaurants offering moule and frites and of course many other restaurants offering different menus. Tours, Royan and Futuroscope and also very close.
We are only a short drive away from the Marais Poitevan or "Green Venice" where you can go cycling, walking or boating along the canals. Its a lovely typical french place to visit and has many restaurants and souvenir shops.
We are 15 minutes drive from the large town of Niort with is cinemas, shops and many restaurants, bars and cafes. It is a fabulous place to just go and sit outside one of the many bars/cafes and people watch and enjoy the sunshine or of course hit the shops and then enjoy a cool panache or beer in afternoon sun. There is a weekly market selling all types of produce from meats, vegetables, plants, clothes and of course poultry. It is well worth a visit. You could also visit the chateau/dungeon or just walk along the river and enjoy the ambiance.
There is also karting and an ice skating rink here in Niort.
