There are 2 swimming pools, both a 15-minute drive. Just right for couples: Visit the beautiful gardens of our local chateaux (4 within a 20-minute drive) or play golf on the 18-hole course. Wander around the quaint village of Bec Hellouin where time seems to stand still. You can buy the monks' hand-made pottery at the Abbey, have a crêpe and a bowl of cider on a terrace restaurant or search for a souvenir in the antique shops. Or if you enjoy sport try canoeing, wind-surfing, fishing, golf, tennis, horse-riding, swimming, or just a stroll in the local shops, mingle with the population, practise your French... ooh la la! Walk in the countryside, grab a bargain at a Brocante (Street Fair), play French boules with the locals, or just sip a glass of wine on a terrace café as you watch the world go by.More
