Floriane Tourrilhes, Glassblower
Floriane Tourrilhes has been based in Lavausseau since 2019 in her studio, which is open to the public from April to December (Wednesday to Saturday / July and August from Tuesday to Sunday).
She likes it when an object tells more than its first appearance and when we can invent stories that bring meaning to our daily lives. It is through the material of glass that she has managed to find her means of expression.
Nathalie Marty, Ronde de Cuir
Nathalie has her workshop in Lavausseau but exhibits her creations all over the department. Whenever she is present in her workshop, she gives a warm welcome to all those who wish to visit.
The Mouton-village park, located in Vasles, on the border of the Vienne and Deux-Sèvres departments, 8 kilometres from Lavausseau, is a place where young and old alike can recharge their batteries in an authentic natural setting away from the pace of the city.
In a 6-hectare park planted with trees, walk in the footsteps of Nicolas and his grandfather, the shepherd, who will tell you the secrets of a story that is played out before your eyes in life size.
La Belle ânée
Between Futuroscope and the Poitevin marshes, La Belle Ânée welcomes you to Jazeneuil and offers you the opportunity to discover the Vonne valley at the pace of a donkey on Mélusine's secret paths.
Take a stroll along the Vonne, have a picnic by the water or listen to the birds singing in the hedgerows. You can choose to go for a walk on your own or with a guide, according to your wishes.
The donkey carries your luggage and your tired young children and accompanies you on tours of 2 days or more, in guest houses or camping.
The Montreuil-Bonnin Castle
An exceptional example of early 13th century military architecture, the castle of Montreuil-Bonnin is an important place in the history of Poitou. According to legend, it was the fairy Mélusine who built this castle and named it "Monstre en oeil" (eye monster) for one of her sons who had a huge eye in the middle of his forehead.
Since 2012, in consultation with the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs (DRAC), a programme of restoration and safeguarding of this heritage, classified as a Historic Monument since 1840, has been undertaken.
Visit by reservation only.
