Location and Local Facilities: We are situated in a tranquil corner
of the village of Bouin in Poitou-Charentes, one of the sunniest
regions in France. The region is rich in culture and history, with
Romanesque architecture all around.



Situated on the outskirts of the village of Bouin, Maison de Lavande
is within easy reach of Niort which is served by the TGV line and the
A10 motorway (10 minutes) which runs from Paris to Bordeaux. It is
within an hour of both Poitiers, Limoge and La Rochelle airports,
served by the budget airlines, nearest port is 4 hours away. Detailed
map and directions given on booking.
Expect long hot summers and short winters. The region is second only
to the Côte d’Azure in the average numbers of sunshine hours
annually. Poitou-Charente has a warm, temperature climate thanks, in
part, to the Gulf Stream. This is an unspoilt region of frequent
blue skies and warm sunshine.
This region of France abounds in beautiful cities, ancient villages,
rivers and forests.
Deux Sèvres (capital Niort)
Vienne (capital Poitiers)
Charente (capital Angouleme)
Charente-Maritime (capital La Rochelle)

Each of the 4 departments possesses its’ own regional identity,
largely as a result of its geographical location. The western most
region includes both flat, grain-producing plains and coastal
marshland - much of it a protected nature reserve. Inland to the
north lies the celebrated network of tranquil waterways and lush
meadow known as the Marais Poitevin, whilst further south the Cognac
area is characterized by its wealth of productive vineyards supplying
grapes for both the illustrious brandy and its aperitif close
relative, Pineau des Charentes. Elsewhere, in northern Charente and
Vienne, for example, you will pass through gently undulating fields
of sunflowers, maize, rape and wheat. Throughout the region, the
landscape also features coppiced woodlands of chestnut, oak, cherry,
holly and acacia, lending colour throughout the seasons. Here and
there, lone mature walnut trees stand like sentinels. The effect,
whatever the season, is both beautiful and rich in its variety.

The market towns of Chef Boutonne, Civray and Ruffec are on the
doorstep and tourist attractions of Futuroscope (theme park), Cognac
and La Rochelle are within easy reach.



Location and Local Facilities: We are situated in a tranquil corner
of the village of Bouin in Poitou-Charentes, one of the sunniest
regions in France. The region is rich in culture and history, with
Romanesque architecture all around.
The gently rolling countryside is ideal for cyclists who prefer their
bike rides not too strenuous, and there are pleasant local walks.
This is the best way to observe the varied local bird life, which
includes redstarts, golden orioles, hoopoes, and buzzards.

At the nearby town of Chef-Boutonne, the chateau at Javarzay is one
of the most important Renaissance chateaux in Poitou, with park and
fishing lake. About 20 minutes away is Melle, where you can visit the
silver mines of the Frankish kings, and the ‘triad’ of Romanesque
churches, or stroll through the themed arboretum. Within 30 minutes’
drive there are a number of zoological parks, a wide variety of
museums, and golf courses.

A little further afield, but still within an hour’s drive, the Marais
Poitevin offers trips along the maze of canals, the town of Saintes
has Roman remains and Mediaeval churches and offers boat trips on the
river Charente, while at Cognac you can visit the warehouses of the
major Cognac producers.)

At Poitiers, the Futuroscope is a vast theme park with attractions to
suit all ages and special shows during the summer. On the Atlantic
coast you will find a number of characterful seaside towns such as La
Rochelle, with its fine port and towers, maritime museum and
aquarium, or Rochefort, 18th century naval town with its
imposing ‘Corderie Royale’ (rope factory.

For music and culture lovers, the region has a wealth of annual music
and dance festivals, for example, classical music or jazz at Melle
(late May) Saintes (July), or Angouleme (September/October); folklore
at Confolens (August); or cinema at La Rochelle (June/July).
