About the neighbourhood
Our gite is located in the 2nd sunniest part of France known and the 'Golden Triangle' and has many beautiful town and villages within a short drive. Also this area is well known for its sunflower fields and there are plenty of picturesque walks and cycling routes. Plenty of restaurants, local food & antique markets, places of historic interest, summer car boot sales and outdoor activities all within the immediate area. Plenty to do with local market in Civray twice weekly, cinema, water slide park, Futuroscope, Vallee des Singes monkey park, canoe hire, cycling hire, Velo Rail, bird of prey displays, historic castles and chateaux's all nearby. 4 local supermarkets all within a few minutes drive with plenty of restaurants.
Getting around
Nearest airport is Poitiers (40 min drive to gite). Limoges airport is just under one hour drive. Car hire is available at both airports and would advise you pre book. Nearest train station is St Saviol and from here there is a bus service from the station into central Civray. Approximately 6 to 7 hours drive from Calais. 1.5 hours drive to the coast at La Rochelle. Our gite is located 15 minutes walk from the centre of Civray along the river Charente.
