For lovers of animals, nature and calm. Spend your holidays in the countryside on a working alpaca farm. Alpacas are very curious and love the attention given them by visitors (especially children).
We are based in the north of Deux-Sevres in the Poitou-Charente, gateway to the Loire, the Vienne, the Charente and the Charente-Maritime. We are only 40 minutes' from Puy du Fou, one hour from Futuroscope, 20 minutes' from the wonderful Zoo at Doué La Fontaine. Whether you are looking to spend time with your family visiting nearby attractions, or are looking to take in a few markets, villages, chateaux and wine-tastings, we are ideally situated.
All commerces are close by, but you will need a car.
