About the neighborhood
Also for the children, Futuroscope theme park at Poitiers is 1 hours drive, and just minutes away is the Pierre-Brune park with mini karting, slides and rides. We highly recommend Puy Du Fou. A theme park with gladiator arena and medieval re-inactments. For a change of pace, the Marais Poitevin, with its Venise Vert waterways, are just 20 minutes away. For the adults, the local vineyards offer tastings, and the famous Cognac houses are within easy reach. Gliss waterpark opened 2017. Machines de’lle nearby.
Getting around
Car recommended.
