This region enjoys the second highest days of sunshine outside the South France and is fabulous for bike riding and walks around it's beautiful lakes and unspoilt villages.

Here are just a few of the local attractions:

Futuroscope has rides, shows and video experiences and a spectacular evening laser / firework display.

Puy du fou is a packed day out which recreates historical scenes and battles and an amazing evening show to finish.

Crocodiles and aux Serpents is another of the nearby attraction.

Finally Poitiers is the capital of Deux Sevres and only 30 minutes away, it has an annual Passeurs Images (Film Festival) between June and August. The city is full of historical architecture with marked walks to make your visit a joy. The city also boasts many traditional restaurants and cafes with great shopping too.

Parthenay

Parthenay is a large town full of historical monuments and modern facilities. It is situated on a rocky out crop surrounded by the River Thouet and during the middle ages was a major stopover for the 'pilgrims of Saint-Jacques' en-route to Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain. Today, it is famed for its large beef cattle market which takes place every Wednesday.

The medieval quarter is worth a foray with the cobbled streets of rue la Vau-St-Jacques leading up to 13th-century ramparts and Pont and Porte St-Jacques, a narrow bridge which joins a drawbridge with tall, twin towers.

Inside the gates there is an attractive medieval centre with many half-timbered houses to be found along the narrow streets. The Rue de la Vau-Saint-Jacques has the best preserved examples.

The Parthenay castle was built in the 11th century with further reinforcements being added in the 13th and 15th century. The castle eventually consisted of nine towers and thick walls to encircle the living accommodation and stables. It's remains today act as reminder of how important the town was during the middle ages.

As Parthenay is full of culture and history let it surprise you with it's weekly street markets and regular festivals such as the lyrique opera of Sanxay on the Gallo Roman site, the music chamber at Lavausseau, plus many other festivals all throughout the Summer period.

“Fabulous brand new rural gite, with excellent on site facilities”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

We stayed here for one week, with our two teenage children. The gite was immaculate, and very comfortable. The onsite facilites were fantastic - the pool was perfect. There was wifi, and plenty of english speaking channels on the TV. The location was very quiet, and the owners were extremely helpful when needed. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property to anyone who wants a holiday in the country. Hopefully we will visit again!

Thanks for your comments, we will certainly remember BBQ night with the snails and of course the Karaoke. Our facebook page will soon be up so you can follow what we have been up to. Hope to see you again. Rose & Neil
