About the neighbourhood
There are local markets on different days throughout the week. Our annual village fete is always on the 1st Sunday in August, starting with a market then a procession at midday followed by a host of things during the rest of the day & in the evening, finishing with a firework display .
Places to visit. These include Bois Pouvreau just 5 minutes down the road. La Vallee des Singes. Lambon park is alway a hit with young children, why not take a picnic lunch then a train ride round the lake, there are pedalo's & canoe's. Beach area & swimming pools. For slightly older children they have zip wires accross the lake.
Futuroscope is a great day out for all the family and I have some discount vouchers.
