There is plenty of access to outdoor activities in the immediate area and beyond. Within 5 minutes walk guests can be taking part in gentle to extreme activities whatever their age and ability.
Cyclists will find many short, medium or long routes taking in the towns and villages of the Vienne. We offer special services for cyclists staying with us including bike maintenance and laundry facilities. Touring cyclists can book a packed lunch for their next stage and we can advise on routes and weather.
Hiking is well catered for with 30 trails within the immediate surroundings. Local trails are well signposted with a tourist board Owl motif on wooden signs so it’s almost impossible to get lost. It is also possible to take some nice walks within the villages of L’Isle-Jourdain and Le Vigeant – ask for details.
The Val de Vienne Racetrack attracts many of our guests whether with racecars, motorcycles or as spectators. We are just a few mins (4Km) away from the track. We are a biker friendly bed and breakfast and can provide an early breakfast for race participants or spectators as long as we have some advance notice.
There are plenty of opportunities for water based activities. Learn to waterski at the Ski-nautique Center just 5 mins drive away (or a 10 minute walk along the river). Go kayaking with the Moussac Kayak Center or, if you have experience, take our own kayaks on to the water.
The more adventurous could have a go at bungey jumping from the L’Isle Jourdain Viaduc. Slightly less crazy is the Treetop Parcourse, or take the zipwire across the river (base is 2 mins walk from our house). The zipwire has been recently extended so that it crosses the river twice in two stages. Everyone can enjoy this activity – we have had 10 year olds to 75 year olds giving it a go.
