The additional facilities of table-tennis, snooker table, table football, badminton, and swimming pool, together with a large selection of bikes, provided ample distraction for everyone and the extensive grounds (fields in which to wander, trees under...

About the neighborhood
Guests can cycle to one of the nearby villages for fresh baguette and croissants every morning, or in the evenings to a bar or local restaurant.

Argenton-Chateau is the nearest town (5 mins drive) and has all basic neccessities (small selection of shops) along with a large open air swimming pool and a lake where you can go out on a pedalo. The meandering streets of the town make for a very pleasant afternoon stroll and at dusk there are often otters to be seen around the 'Lac'.

Bressuire is a 15 minute drive and offers a more than adequate selection of supermarkets, restaurants, a town centre market every Tuesday and some wonderful patisseries! There is an old chateau here too, and a bizarre but fantastic antiques and oddities store.
