About the neighbourhood
Cussay is a small village mid-way between Descartes and Ligueil. It has an excellent boulangerie (bread shop) and a fantastic restaurant.

The gardens are part of the local Parc des Loisirs in which there is an excellent outdoor swimming complex, crazy golf, canoeing on the river and children’s play area. Within the park there is an area containing llamas, donkeys, sheep, rabb...
