The Poitou-Charentes region
With the sunniest climate in Western France, this area is one of the most unspoilt in the country. The Atlantic coast has gentle sandy beaches, with bridged islands like Oléron and Ré, to be explored just offshore.
For the children (and adults!), only half an hour away a visit to Puy de Fou in Les Epesses, Vendee is a must! One of France's largest attractions it features gladiators in horse-drawn chariots in a huge amphitheatre and much, much more, including spectacular fireworks in the evening. (Book in advance for the fireworks)
Extreme thrills, images in giant-screen format, breathtaking shows, interactive adventures that will delight your senses, and more at Futuroscope, just north of Poitiers.
Catch yourself a giant at Pescalis, the largest fishing resort in Europe is only half an hour away.
Swing through the trees at the Foret d'aventure at Chantemerle.
Le Cadre Noir – is the French equivalent of the Spanish Riding School. The riding display is amazing and you can tour around the 400 stables where top riders from all over the world come to train their horses.
At just over an hour away, L'Audbaudiere is also within easy reach of the beaches of the Vendee for a days outing.
Discover the famous vineyards & chateau of the Loire valley just 40 minutes away at Saumur.
L'Audebaudiere du Lac of which The Lake House and Farm on the Lake is part of, is situated in the Poitou Charente region, close to the borders of the Loire and Vendee regions. This property is close enough to drive to comfortably, yet far enough south to enjoy the warmer climate. Located just half a mile from the small village of St Aubin du Plain with its local shop, bar/restaurant and indoor tennis court.
There is a riding school just one mile away and lots of scope for walking, bird watching and cycling (bring your own bikes).
Four miles away is the market town of Argenton Les Vallees ( formerly Argenton Chateau ), restaurants and a beautiful lake for boating or just playing in the sand.
There are several chateaux to visit locally and the large Chateau town of Bressuire is approximately seven miles away with many shops, restaurants, two hypermarkets and an international tennis club.
The wildlife is quite amazing; lizards, rabbits, hares, field mice, deer, otters, wild boar, giant buzzards, owls, kingfishers and each evening a spectacular aerobatic display by thousands of starlings coming to roost by the lake – a must for any keen bird watchers.
