The towns of Cognac and Saintes are half an hour's drive away. The delightful medieval town of La Rochelle with its harbourside cafes and shops, and the gorgeous sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast, are roughly an hour's drive from here.

The Ile d'Oléron, linked by a bridge from Marennes, makes a wonderful day out and takes you into another world. Well known for its oyster beds, the island has enormous unspoiled charm and splendid beaches. The Ile de Ré is another island near La Rochelle, scattered with whitewashed houses covered in roses with sandy beaches and hidden coves around the coast. The little roads that cross the island have been designed specifically with cyclists in mind.

Bordeaux, well known for its world famous wines and lively cultural life, is just over an hour away.
Other local attractions include Futuroscope, the science and technology park near Poitiers and La Palmyre Zoo, voted European Zoo of the year.
