Now this charming, solid stone house has been tastefully extended, updated and insulated to modern standards so is ready to provide modern comforts with a proper shower-room, top-of-the-range heating, modern appliances, a brand new washing machine and free WiFi. Retaining it's ancient charm, the massive stone walls guarantee it stays cool in the heat of summer, or with the choice of both a log burner and a new highly efficient heating, it stays warm and cosy during the cooler months. Plus fine quality soft furnishings to provide all the year round comfort. Local amusements for families: The ideal place for both adults and children within easy reach of Monternon is Futurescope. With so much to see so it is probably more than a 1 day visit. On the way to Futurescope you will pass the large and very impressive 15th century moated Château de Bourg Archambault. You then pass through the charming town of Montmorillon. It has a very interesting heritage and architecture, is described as The Town of the Written Word and has a volcanic mineral named after it. the town is set on a river and has many ancient buildings, churches, interesting shops and restaurants and an impressive 15th century bridge over the river Gartempe . About 25 minutes from your Monternon base is Snake Island at La Trimouille with 60 species including alligators, caiman alligators, monitor lizards, snakes, tortoises, lizards, crocodiles, chameleons and mongoose. La Trimouille is a pretty village with a river running through it. At Chauvigny (approx 1 hour from Monternon ) you have Giants of the Sky it is set in the ruins of a Chateau and has amazing displays with many birds of prey. Many of our visitors with family spend a few days on the beach or in the pool at Lac de Mondon which is only 10 or 15 minutes east of Monternon. Google shows you images of the lake and the large open park (free of charge), the swimming pool, the café restaurant etc, There is also another smaller lake at Chaillac which is only 10+ minutes north of Monternon.There are many other amusements and interesting places nearby including the fascinating city of Limoges which is an historic and extremely diverse city, set on the Vienne River and with so much to see really well worth visiting. It is described as the city of art and history and has is tourist train to take you around the city, an indoor aquarium, many historical buildings, a porcelain museum, many porcelain shops, more super shops and restaurants plus so much more. About a 15 minute drive from Monternon is Les Herolles. Here one of the largest open-air markets in France is held every month. There are many hundreds of stands selling everything you can imagine plus a large, traditional animal and poultry market with horses, sheep, goats, rabbits, ducks, geese etc - this is a must see. Our record of repeat bookings from both couples and families says it all!More
