Explore the Local Area

Having explored the local area with two young children, the Owners of La Vue have put together this list of great places to visit. They have also included useful websites to help you get to know the area and plan special days out.

La Ferme des Fillaos

For a rustic adventure head to La Ferme des Fillaos.  You will be sure of a warm welcome from the friendly owners of this small farm located approximately 25 minutes from the hotel. Enjoy learning about the resident goats, donkeys, pigs, cow, chickens and rabbits.  Extra special during the lambing season.

Base De Loisirs Andre Mermet

A lovely outdoor park approximately 20-30 minutes away from the hotel. Benefitting from an idyllic setting on the edge of the Charente, Base De Loisirs Andre Mermet offers eight hectares of parkland with shaded  picnic areas, slides, swings, skate park, volleyball, football and rugby courts, pyramid of ropes, wading pool and an 18-hole golf course!

La Courtine

Located close to the park mentioned above the wonderful La Courtine restaurant is family friendly, serves excellent dishes, has a great terrace and we think is a true gem.

Toboggan et cie

For an indoor activity to keep little ones entertained Toboggan et cie is an extensive soft play centre, approximately 35 minutes from the hotel, at Limoges, on the north side of Angloueme. During our visits we have found the facilities to be very clean and ideal for younger children.
