Ambrieres Les Vallees is also close by and has bakers and good butchers. There are local walks to explore the lovely rural coutryside around us. If you like watching birds there are plenty to see including buzzards, kestrels and barn owls which hunt around the gite and the occasional Little Owl. We would happy to show you the local owls and bats which come out at dusk.
