About the neighborhood
If you enjoy eating out, there are a large number of restaurants nearby to suit all tastes and all occasions. If wine is your forte, you will find plenty of opportunities to savour local specialties from the Haute Poitou and Loire regions, not to mention the numerous varieties of goats cheese particular to the area. The pace of life is slow here – you can unwind and relax in the tranquility of this beautiful river valley with its abundance of fauna and flora and many kms of walking and cycling trails, linking the villages and settlements of the Dive. Lots of fishing venues for fishing enthusiasts.... Or maybe you would just prefer to laze by the pool in the sun, with a good book and a glass of wine....
Getting around
Located in the sleepy hamlet of Boucoeur, on the edge of the village of St Varent, Maison Boucoeur is in the unspoiled valley of the River Dive, in the heart of rural Nouvelle Aquitaine where the annual hours of sunshine are only surpassed by those of the Mediterranean coast. This green and fertile valley is encircled by a vast undulating landscape of sunflowers, maize and cereals, interspersed with vineyards and small towns and villages. The immediate region is not only historically interesting, but steeped in legends and folklore, and, although off the main tourist track, is surrounded by an enormous variety of things to see and do. Within easy reach of the chateaux of the Loire, the internationally acclaimed Futuroscope and Puy du Fou.
