La Limoise and Pierre Loti
This house is typically Charentaise. It was once owned by Eugènie Duplais, a close friend of Nadine Viaud, mother of Julien Viaud alias Pierre Loti. Mme Duplais' daughter was eight years older than Julien and was another big sister to him. They were very fond of each other and spent many days playing on the property. Pierre Loti speaks of it as a paradise on earth.
The Trizay lake and the Floral Park
Trizay Lake is an ideal place to stop. There is a children's playground, a shaded picnic area, an inn and a restaurant. The upper edge of the lake, on the north side, has been landscaped with gardens called "Jardins de Compostelle" which are open to the public in season.
