This is an idyllic spot in peaceful countryside, amongst a few other houses so not totally secluded. There are lots of places to visit locally such as the Vallée des Singes (Monkey Valley) in Romagne (26k), Gallo-Roman sites in Rom (18k), boating on the Venise Verte (45k) or perhaps a day at Futuroscope theme park (65k). Lezay holds a market on Thursday mornings (6k) and there's also a lake at Le Lambon (8k) with canoes, kayaks, pedalos, archery and tennis.
