Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • Visit one of the local markets during your stay with us. It's just so quintessentially French to visit a bustling local market, with the wonderful array of fresh local produce

  • Canoeing is really popular around about here, and you’ll get to see some of the otherwise hidden spectacular views of the region.

  • Just 30 mins away in Angouleme is the great water park Nautilus with 50m indoor pools, diving pools, outdoor and indoor slides, & wave machines.
