About the neighbourhood
Local amenities at Thenezay 10 mins away are a small supermarket/garage, baker, chemist, garage, post office and bank/cash point.
Getting around
To make the most of your stay and enjoy all that is on offer a car is necessary. However our guests remark how easy it is to drive in this area of France with quiet lanes with little traffic. On the other hand good major roads and motorways can get from place to place easily. One of the many Cycling Routes passes nearby and we have a variety of bicycles for hire.
