Description from owner

The double bed Ancienne Ecurie is one of two gites which together with the main house formed a busy hotel and bar until the mid 1900s.

Situated in the centre of the pretty village of La Trimouille on the banks of the River Benaize you have everything you need on your doorstep starting with your morning croissant or pain au chocolat from the local boulangerie to lunch or dinner at one of the restaurants. If you prefer to cater for yourself, the local shop has most things you need.

This former stable has been recently renovated to provide gite accommodation and is a great base to visit the many tourist attractions in the area or to explore the countryside and medieval towns by foot, car or bike. Cycle hire can be arranged for you, please contact us for details.You will discover hidden chateaux, mills and glimpses into the past at every turn.......Or you could simply enjoy the slower pace of rural French life and relax with a book and a glass of wine around the pool or in the garden.

The Poitou-Charentes region

The Vienne Valley is an unspoilt paradise for walkers, cyclists, anglers and lovers of nature. Bordering the Brenne National Park, there are many activities on offer such as horse riding, canoeing and watersports .The charming medieval towns of Montmorillon, Chauvigny and Angles sur Anglin are all within easy reach and Futuroscope theme park near Poitiers is also only an hour away.

Being France, there are many gastronomic specialites to try including the farci poitevin, a mix of herbs, cabbage and bacon, chabichou du poitou, a soft cheese made from fresh full cream goat's milk or the delicious broye butter biscuits and macaroons. The cognac vineyards can be found to the south and west of the Vienne and local wine is produced in the vineyards to the north of Poitiers using Sauvignon and Chardonnay vines for the white wine and Cabernet and Gamay vines for the red. Pineau des Charentes is a white, red or rose drink made from grape juice and cognac and is usually served as an aperitif.

La Trimouille

On the borders of the Poitou, Berry and Limousin departments,you will not be short of things to do in the Montmorillon/La Trimouille area.It has a rich heritage with numerous manors, mills, castles and medieval towns.

Montmorillon is just 15 minutes away with more shops and restaurants and a Wednesday market. Wander around the cobbled streets and soak up the atmosphere of the City of Writing (Cite de l'Ecrit) in the old town. 15 minutes in the other direction is the town of Le Blanc, the main town in the Brenne National Park.

The medieval towns of Chauvigny and Angles sur l'Anglin are not to be missed. Chauvigny has a spectacular show with birds of prey flying around the castle ruins and there is also a great market on Saturday mornings. Angles sur l'Anglin has wonderful views across the Gartempe and Creuse valleys.

Horse riding, archery, rock climbing, bungee jumping and other sports are available at various centres in the area.

Animal lovers will not be disappointed with parks dedicated to monkeys (Vallee des Singes), snakes (L'Ile aux Serpents), crocodiles (Planete aux crocodiles) to mention but a few.

Finally, Futuroscope, which is just an hour away and is an amazing day out for the whole family with spectacular rides, 3D adventures and interactive activites. Do not leave before the evening fireworks and lakeside show.
