The countryside around Les Cygnes is perfect driving country. Not the winding mountain roads of the Alps, but the winding roads that traverse the gently rolling fields of sunflowers and maize, through woods and across narrow bridges.

We are a 1 hour drive from many beautiful towns and sites of interest and all via empty narrow and twisty country roads. The one constant here is the lack of traffic to hinder you.

You may want to take your car around the challenging Val De Vienne race track or just watch one the many race days. The track is less than an hour away.













Many people visit here to experience one of the finest racing weekends on the classic car calendar, the Circuit des Remparts at Angouleme. Held each year on the third weekend in September on a street circuit, unchanged since it's first event in 1939. The highlight of the weekend is a

race devoted to Grand Prix Bugattis where 20 or more Bugattis race around the narrow streets of the old walled town.

We have covered parking for up to 4 cars, and off-street parking for up to 5 more cars.
