There are loads of interesting places to visit and things to do (if/when you tire
of just lying around La Vieille Grange’s pool !), including sleepy villages and livelier
towns, beaches, chateaux/wine tasting, nature reserves, a new bird sanctuary, outside
activities (for those into them!) including fishing, horse riding, walking and bird
watching - or just sitting outside bars watching the world go by!
Within easy striking distance are : Chatelallion Plage, La Rochelle, Ile de Ré, Ile
d'Oléron, St. Jean d'Angély, Angoulême, Royan, Rochefort, Cognac, Blaye, Saintes,
Niort and even Bordeaux all within 1 hour drive.
