Civray Holiday Rental Villas & Gites - Civray Apartments

Civray is a commune in the Vienne department in the Poitou-Charentes region in western France. It’s positioned on the banks of the Charente and has been a busy centre of commerce since Roman times. The town is built around the Romanesque church of Saint-Nicolas, which was built in the 12th Century. The façade of the church has many sculptures, including the impressive and ‘Wise and Foolish Virgins’ - well worth seeing when renting a holiday gite or villa in Civray, France.

The old part of the town boasts numerous buildings worth visiting when you rent Civray self-catering holiday accommodation. They are all testimony to the administrative importance of Civray in pre-Revolutionary times.  The impressive l'Hôtel de la Prévôté, on the tourist route, is an example of such a building.  

When you holiday in Civray you can also enjoy a panoramic view of the town and church from the ruins of the fortified castle. Civray also has several interesting paths along the Charente river. Be sure to stock up on delicious local produce at the markets on Tuesdays and Fridays, there is a fair the first Tuesday of each month – another reason to stay in a Civray rental villa!

The town is close to picturesque gardens such as that at Parc de La Belle, which has around 20,000 plants over a 10 acre site, and the opportunity to spend a night in a cabane (treehouse).  Le Jardin de Faisans is a flower garden and animal attraction, with 40 species of pheasant.  Le Jardin de Rocaille is a rock garden with 800 plant varieties over a 4,000m2 site.
