About the neighbourhood
Pouançay: close to La Bellevue is the reputed Trésor Belge open for lunch, dinner and ‘happy hour’ between 5pm & 7pm (closed Mon & Tue). A scenic walk (9km/12km) is mapped, starting in front of the Mairie passing by vines and troglodyte caves, while a leisurely potter to the Table d’Orientation particularly spectacular at sun-set, gives an impressive 360° view of the surrounding area, highlighting châteaux and points of interest. St Leger de Montbrillais: (2kms) neighbouring Pouançay is a great little village for pick-up’s, St Leger has a post office, hairdresser, boulangerie (closed Wed), and a highly reputed boucher much favored by ourselves, we highly recommend trying the rillettes d’oie, and be prepared to queue on a Sunday morning!
