After dropping some friends off at Poitiers train station yesterday we had to go over to Angles-surl'Anglin, so we decided to go cross-country and see if we could find some roads we had not been on - this is always interesting without a map or compass and certainly no GPS. We decided to leave the D910 main road a little earlier than we would usually do through Chasseneuil de Poitou on the D18 and then on to the D4.
A little up the road were pleasantly surprised to see on our left a chateau that was new to us. It was closed but I took these shots over the wall - looks interesting plus there was a lot of work going on - preparing for the new season we supposed.
It is Chateau de Vayres a private chateau that is available for marriages, conferences, seminars or, as they put it, any 'other gathering'. You can rent the chateau including a tent with a capacity of 700 people and soon after the 2013 work is completed a room with a capacity of 250 people. Do not think we will be needing their services but if you did I'm sure it would make a great venue.
