Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

This area of France is reported to have the 2nd highest level of sunshine in the country.
The region has a rural farming feel to it, with agriculture being the main occupation of the locals. This gives the area it's lovely open feel with vast fields of wheat, oil-seed rape and sunflowers. Hugh skies are the product of a softly undulating landscape, giving rise to wonderful sunsets and stunning night-time displays of stars.

An hours drive takes you to La Rochelle with its lovely old port and marina, many great restaurants and narrow shop-lined streets. Nearby are the Islands of Ile de Re and ile d'Oleron, as well as some great beaches.
The historic city of Poitiers is about 45 mins away, with a self-guided tourist walks through the city, passing some wonderful Romanesque architecture. The theme park of Futuroscope is also worth a visit.
The canals of Marais Poitevin, known as 'Green Venice' are just 30 mins away. Here you can hire a boat and drift along the river at you own pace, watching the wildlife.
La Vallee des singes (monkey Valley), just 50 mins away, is a must for children and adults alike. Here, you can see the 30 different species of monkey running free in a natural setting.
Cognac, going south is about an hour away. The beautiful river Charente runs through the city, and here you can visit one of the many Cognac distilleries and even have a tasting too.

A folder containing information of local attractions and restaurants is available in the house.
