Near our  gites, the River Gartempe with its verdured banks is one of the Vienne's most beautiful rivers. Home to an abundance of wildlife it offers a variety of activities from a quiet boat trip fishing to an exciting day out canoeing or kayaking. The river winds its way through several historic towns including Saint Savin with its remarkable Abbey which is famous
for its beautiful Romanesque frescoes listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. 
For those staying in our gites with more therapeutic relaxation in mind take a trip to La Roche Posay - one of France's leading Spa towns where the curative waters are used in an array of healing, beauty and relaxation treatments that are available as single treatments or can be directed into a more personal programme lasting over a number of days. Visit on route the charming village on Angles - sur - L'Anglin with it's beautiful medieval houses, exquisite gardens, and cobbled streets all winding their way around the tranquil river Anglin - such picturesque scenery awarding this village the title of 'Prettiest village in France'.
Our gites were once a meeting place for the resistance during the second world war. Our 18th century farmhouse combines old style character and warmth with modern comforts. With a stunning fireplace in the bed/sitting room this gite can accommodate two people either as a twin or a double. Gites facilities include a kitchen containing fridge, washing machine and cooker and a separate bathroom with toilet. Enjoy the pleasant grounds for an evening stroll before eating 'al fresco' on the terrace where you have full use of excellent BBQ facilities.

With a tradition of writing, illustrating, engraving and paper manufacturing Montmorillon is a city for lovers of literature and beautiful objects. With workshops still practising some of these ancient skills a fascinating day out of exploration is guaranteed. Enjoy just for its exquisite architecture and graceful intimate streets this beautiful riverside city with its 11th century churches and monasteries. A worthwhile bonus to your visit will be participation in some of the many local festivals and fetes which unite locals and their display of traditional music, song, dance and food with visitors to towns and villages over the summer.
