With some great day trip options in the surrounding area, renting a car makes sense. Without one, it’d be much more difficult to explore everything that Niort, 40 miles away, has to offer. Chateau de Niort, House of the Marais Poitevin and Luka Land alone make the drive out here worthwhile. Don’t miss Cravant-les-Coteaux either! Just 45 miles away, Chateau d’Usse, Royal Fortress of Chinon and Forteresse Royale de Chinon are must-sees here.
