NIORT WALKSNiort is a charming city to visit when travelling down the Poitevin marsh or Atlantic roads. It is known for its atmosphere and for Richard the Lionheart's double dungeon which watches over the "angelic" city, named for the umbelliferous plant well-known to gourmets. The built-up banks of the Sèvre Niortaise form a "green belt", while the public path from the third millennium traces a lovely 50 km loop. Furthermore, Niort - a regional centre for fine crafts - teems with artisans and designers.
POITEVIN MARSHGo and explore the Poitevin marsh: it's located very near to the hotel. Listed as "Grand Site de France" since 2012 and "Grand Site d’exception", the Poitevin marsh remains the second most humid vast area in France behind the Camargue. One can explore by boat, following the 4,000 km long network of channels, by bicycle on 800 km of paths, or on foot, along the meadows lined with poplars and willows. The wet marshland, and its labyrinth of channels, stands in stark contrast to the vast flat expanses of the dry marsh leading to the sea.
THE FUTUROSCOPE IN POITIERSLocated at Chasseneuil-du-Poitou, just an hour's drive from the hotel, Poitiers' Futuroscope invites you to fly, to fall and to exit the solar system without having to leave your seat: here, digital technology transports you into the 4th dimension, where science and simulation combine to let you get a glimpse of the future. This spectacular amusement park, with an architecture that is just as amazing as its attractions, has been captivating both young and old since 1987 through its giant interactive screens that awaken curiosity, emotions and the imagination.
