Places to visit in Romagne & the surrounding areas.
La Vallee des Singes
A beautifully landscaped sanctuary for 30 species of monkeys that allows visitors to walk amongst many of the breeds and observe them at feeding times in a natural habitat.
A 'must see' in this area and just 10 minutes by car from Le Jardin de Rose.
This theme park is like a futuristic universe packed with rides, shows and exhibitions on land sea and in space, some of which are the only ones in the world.
This famous park is just to the North of Poitiers and about 40 minutes by car from Romagne.
Oradour sur Glane
No one can prepare you for the effect this village and museum will have on you.
The old village is left just as it was after the Waffen SS arrived in 1944 and murdered almost all of the 600+ inhabitants, then set fire to all the buildings.
It's about an hour away and well worth the visit.
Poitiers has an attractive historical centre with many shops, cafes and places to visit.
Poitiers centre is within easy walking distance of several cheaply priced car parks and railway station.
Traditional French Markets
You can't leave France without visiting one or more of their wonderful markets.
The sights and smells are just typical of what this area is about and allow you to witness how the people live, sell and buy on a daily basis.
This is a beautiful area that starts about half an hour North West of here and covers a large area towards La Rochelle.
There are hundreds of pretty tree lined canals criss-crossing the area which can be enjoyed on punts available for hire at various points.
One of the many quick and easy to reach pretty towns in the area with a spectacular viaduct over the Vienne river.
