Aulnay, St Jean d’Angely and Matha are all a short drive away, each offering a selection of supermarkets, cafes,bars, restaurants and banks as well as weekly markets which sell fresh regional produce. St Jean d’Angely is the bigger of the three, a beautiful medieval town with a pretty lake & picnic area where you can hire canoes & pedaloes. A go-carting circuit is situated on the edge of the town.
There are usually weekly ‘brocantes’ in the nearby towns during the summer, as well as the splendid ‘foires’ which are huge markets, that dominate the town centres for a few hours. The best are probably Saintes on the first Monday and Rouillac on the 27th of every month.
The chateaux at Dampierre-sur-Boutonne, La Roche Courbon, Crazannes and Panloy are nearby.
The local boulanger delivers to the hamlet three times a week, and usually has a good selection of breads and pastries.
