The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
Our nearest village is Montrollet, which is 2km away and has a bar/restaurant overlooking the lake. The market town of St Junien is a 10 minute drive away and features various supermarkets and retail outlets as well as some very interesting shops in the centre of town. Every Saturday morning there is a market and every 3rd Saturday of the month there is a very large market taking up most of the town. The city of Limoges is less than 30km away and is well worth a visit.
We have a large selection of leaflets available, which include places of interest as well as activities for children. Oradour Sur Glane is a village preserved since 1944 when the SS invaded and is only 8km away, but is worth a visit. A visit to Bellevue near Limoges is for all of the family and features train rides, mini safari, toboggan rides, mini-golf, carting etc.
A must is a cycle ride on the Velo-Rail either from Confolens or Bussier-Galant taking you through some wonderful landscapes at your own speed.
The Aquarium du Limousin in Limoges is fascinating for all the family with over 2,500 species of fish! Horse riding is available at Brigueuil, which is 8km away either for the experienced or beginner with randonnees through the forest.
Canoe and kayak trips along the river Vienne can be arranged.
For those with the need for speed why not have a go at outdoor carting near Chalus, comprising of a large circuit in excess of 1200m, which also features a restaurant.
The Parc du Reynou is a safari parc near Limoges within 45 hectares and includes a chateau to discover as well as some fascinating lakes and rivers.
A visit to Limoges would not be complete without a visit to the Maison de la Porcelaine. Why not tour the factory for free of over 200,000 items on display in a 1000m2 factory shop!
For those keen to fish, there are numerous lakes within the area for carp fishing either for the day or for the week to include equipment hire. We can make enquiries for you in advance if you so wish as well as making any bookings for any of the above and more.
There are also various châteaux for you to visit from the Chateau de Peyras at Roumazieres-Loubert or the Chateau de Rochebrune at Etagnac, both of which are not very far. The medieval town of Confolens is worth a visit, especially during the folk festival celebrations which take place during the middle of August and features lots of street entertainment, artists, market traders and various concerts.
For those who are keen to discover the area by foot or bicycle (we have two bikes that we hire out for €5 a day for both). We are adjacent to the Brigueuil Forest where there are various chemins (tracks) to explore, which incorporate some lovely lakes, pine forests and villages. We have maps available as all of the chemins are coloured accordingy to the distance you wish to travel.
