Location description from owner

The Poitou-Charentes region

Well known for its mirco climate. The Poitou Charente region has much to offer locally, or within an easy drive away. Local historic towns are St Maixent l'Ecole & Parthenay which are steeped in history & well worth exploring! Poitiers or Niort are within 45 mins drive & likewise well worth a visit, be it to lunch, shop or take in the architecture. There are some lovely local walks & cycle tracks if you are feeling energetic. La Rochelle is a must. Admire the wonderful old buildings & monuments, lunch in the old port, then catch some of the street artist's whilst you......... !

Menigoute

There are local markets on different days throughout the week. Our annual village fete is always on the 1st Sunday in August, starting with a market then a procession at midday followed by a host of things during the rest of the day & in the evening, finishing with a firework display . Places to visit. These include Bois Pouvreau just 5 minutes down the road. La Vallee des Singes. Lambon park is alway a hit with young children, why not take a picnic lunch then a train ride round the lake, there are pedalo's & canoe's. Beach area & swimming pools. For slightly older children they have zip wires accross the lake.Futuroscope is a great day out for all the family and I have some discount vouchers.
