The Owner Recommends

What to do

There is a local market in most surrounding villages where you can buy local cheeses, breads and meat and veg.

Les Geants du Ciel..(1 1/2 hrs)
One of the best attractions we tell guests
about. Displays of birds of Prey throughout
the day. Everyone comes away thrilled.
Vallee du Singes..(30mins) This is the 2nd best attraction.
Monkey Village, where they are all around
you, babies and all. You can watch them being
fed. And sit and watch the naughty chimps
from the other side of the lake!!!
Futuroscope ..Just the top side of Poitiers. It is a park
with symulator rides with a fantastic night
show.
