NATURE WEEKEND WITH THE CHILDREN
Take in the country air, do nature activities with the children: fishing, swimming, walking in the trees, or sleeping under the stars in a transparent bubble. The perfect programme for this short stay to recharge your batteries.
Family fun !
To unwind and get a taste of the holidays, there's nothing like country air for the weekend. But for the children, it's got to be fun! On the Saturday morning, we took them to Pescalis for a new experience to share with the family: an introduction to ‘no-kill’ fishing (you don’t kill the fish, it’s just for the pleasure of fishing). They managed pretty well. We then visited the freshwater aquarium, before enjoying a picnic by the lake. We would have been quite happy to stay there for a little siesta, but the children had heard about a natural swimming lake, with no chemicals, and a playground, so, we headed for the Val de Scie leisure We spent the afternoon diving, whizzing down the slides, reading on the loungers and having lots of family fun. In the evening, we had dinner in Bressuire at the Côté Jardin restaurant before going back to Les Bulles d'O in Saint-André-sur-Sèvre. We slept in an incredible cabin made of wood and glass. The big windows gave us panoramic views of the sky and the surrounding countryside. David showed us the stars with his telescope, then slowly sliding into the land of Nod, we contemplated them in silence.
In Wonderland: the World’s nerve centre !
In our ‘rain drop’, we were in the perfect spot to admire nature and the animals waking up, together with our children who climbed into our bed. After contemplation, action! Sunday morning, it’s climbing high, jumping into space and testing your balance in a beautiful oak forest. We were very proud to have managed the Tarzan jump and 4 zip-wires at the Parc Aventure Chantemerle. Due to a lack of time, we couldn’t do the laser game or the nets hanging in the trees, but we’ll come back for an adrenaline boost another time. New adventures were waiting! We had a picnic there, before finishing our weekend with a visit to the garden of stories in the village of Pougne-Hérisson. A unique site in France and very surprising, a legendary location in the Poitevin region, this village is the Nombril du Monde. It is said that all tales and the most beautiful lies originated here. Another wonderful memory to add to our family getaway.
WHERE TO SLEEP AND EAT, WHAT TO DO?
If you follow in the footsteps of Lucas and his family, you too can make some unforgettable memories at Pescalis, the Val de Scie leisure centre and the Parc Aventure Chantemerle!
