AREA: The area offers much to explore and has a good sunshine record thanks to its micro-climate.  Vouvant, one of the prettiest villages in France is 10 minutes away. Puy de Fou, recently voted the worlds finest and Futuroscope theme parks are within easy reach and are worth a visit. Local lakes and the Mervent forest are within a few minutes drive. Mervent has an adventure course and canoeing facility. Horse riding is popular and the Atlantic coast, an hour away, is good for surfing. The area is great for walks and picnics. Day fishing cards can be purchased in high season.

The area has many places of interest. Faymoreau is an old mining centre with a museum Nieul sur L'Autize is close by and has connections with Eleanor of Aquitaine. It is included with Vouvant and Foussais-Payre for 'nuits musicales' in the high season and Maillezais with its famous abbey is only 25 mins drive. Niort is 26 km from L'Atelier, while Les Herbiers is 48 km from the property.
