We had a blast during our flight. We even went above the clouds for a moment. Especially the landing was convenient, there was a guy on the ground to pick us up.

Musee Auto Moto Velo

Reviewed By Karl S - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Enjoyable range of bicycles, motorbikes and cars. Lots ofvehicles as well as historical stories, photos and bits of engines Some old posters and a couple of other Exhibitions including a room of swords and guns made in this former arms factory. A reasonable walk near the town centre but has its own free parking areas. Only 5 Euros entry. Walkabout the factory area and you can find a circus school, a pair of enormous chimneys you can take a staircase walkway up and around the exterior. From the top you can see the scope of the old factory. There's a canal end which will have been how they'd have delivered production down river and locks to view. The whole place sits an the river and the neighbouring Forge is being refurbished to be openedcas what looks like can ice rink.

Très beau parc où il est agréable de se promener le long de la Vienne jusqu'à la pointe de Forclan. Les rives sont magnifiques avec des arbres majestueux. On rejoint les rives du Clain. Promenade agréable également en vélo.

Venus début mars, nous n'avons pas hésité à pousser les barrières qui n'étaient pas cadenassées pour profiter du site et de la signalétique très accessible mais pertinente et instructive.
Sur le site, les périodes d'ouverture s’étalent du 02/06/2018 au 16/09/2018.
Ce site mérite une visite, ce sont les ruines d'un théâtre de 10 000 places d'une ville couvrant 70 hectares. Tout près, vous trouverez en accès libre et gratuit l'Echiquier de Moussais la Bataille, qui relate l'affrontement en 732 entre CHARLES MARTEL et ABD-ER-RAHMAN.

Le Loft

Reviewed By simoncbn - Chatellerault, France

Nice and new still, attractive looking bar, though we did not use it. We went to watch a film in English in the afternoon, and we had the cinema entirely to ourselves; a private showing, so it was great. Comfy chairs , good sound, etc. The only problem was they put on the lights early, and, being a suspense film, that meant that we now knew the end was coming which spoilt it a bit. Otherwise, great.

Aven’Thure

Reviewed By F H

We visited Aven'thuré on one of the hottest days of the year! The guides were very welcoming. We hadn't booked though we would do another time. Despite what the website says, they were open in the mornings too.
Great circuits for younger children only 1m off the ground, all the way up to the "black runs" which are really very technical.
At 20€ per adult it's a great day out!

Pont Henri IV

Reviewed By Pierre L - Tours, France

C'est Catherine de Médicis qui décida de la construction de l'ouvrage qui débuta en 1572
La construction fut réalisée par le frère de celui du Pont Neuf de Paris
Ce pont long de 144 m large de 21 avec neuf travées dites en " cornes de vache " enjambe le Vienne
Coté rive gauche deux imposantes tours rondes coiffées d'ardoises , donnent un aspect majestueux a l'édifice , les tours carrées de la rive droite sont détruites
Le pont Henri VI mérite le détour ; il est situé en centre ville face à Chateauneuf et la Manu

Eglise Saint-Antoine

Reviewed By Chaktori - Poitiers, France

Construite aux 15e siècle et 16e siècle, l'église Saint-Antoine de la foucaudière est classée en 1910 et les restes de l'ancien cloître sont classés en 1913. Le porche est abrité et au dessus s'élève le clocher.
L'entrée est particulière, puisque l'on pénètre dans la partie restante de l'église du 14ème, la chapelle Saint-Antoine, qui donne accès au chœur, à une chapelle édifiée par Charles Martell et au reste du cloître.
Il ne reste que la partie orientale de l'édifice, l'immense chœur servant d'église paroissiale. Beaucoup de choses sont à découvrir dans cet édifice gothique flamboyant : Sculptures, statuaire, portail et toute l'architecture du chœur et des chapelles ainsi que de magnifiques vitraux.

Eglise Saint-Sulpice

Reviewed By Chaktori - Poitiers, France

Construite au début du 12ème siècle et classée en 1914, son architecture originale transporte le visiteur en Espagne.
En effet, sa façade et une partie du côté sud sont enveloppés par une galerie ouverte sur l'extérieur, avec colonnes et arcature. Cet élément architectural unique dans la Vienne, on le trouve fréquemment en Espagne, un peu en Bourgogne et en Iles de France.
L'ensemble est vraiment très harmonieux, et l'intérieur l'est tout autant. Des fresques, des peintures, 20 chapitraux sculptés, des statues et des vitraux modernes très intéressants.
