About the neighborhood
There are local markets on different days throughout the week. Our annual village fete is always on the 1st Sunday in August, starting with a market then a procession at midday followed by a host of things during the rest of the day & in the evening, finishing with a firework display . Places to visit. These include Bois Pouvreau just 5 minutes down the road. La Vallee des Singes. Lambon park is alway a hit with young children, why not take a picnic lunch then a train ride round the lake, there are pedalo's & canoe's. Beach area & swimming pools. For slightly older children they have zip wires accross the lake. Futuroscope is a great day out for all the family and I have some discount vouchers.
How to get there
Driving & Ferry...Dover-Calais is approx 6 hrs drive. Portsmouth to St Malo or Caen is around 4- 5 hrs hrs driving. Eurotunnel is great if you don't like the ferry & very quick. Budget airlines..Ryanair to Poitiers which is our nearest, around 30 mins drive from Menigoute. La Rochelle is about 1hr 30 mins drive with airlines Ryanair, Jet2 & Flybe. Limoges 2hrs drive away. Car hire from the airports can be easily arranged when you book your flights. Hertz offer a discount with Ryanair.
