Luxury Chateau Jautrudon, set in the heart of rural Limousin in France, has much of interest in the surrounding area to make a perfect holiday location.

The surrounding area has lots to offer for those who love the great outdoors. Within the park activities include

- The 'Trim Trail' incorporating 6 exercise stations over a 1,500m course in the forest

- Golf on the 3 hole par 3 golf course (more holes are planned for 2011)

- Just spend a few hours exploring the grounds and forest on many kilometers of trails

Outside the estate the immediate vicinity has miles of well sign posted walking trails. Detailed maps are available at the Chateau and all the routes have information boards in the villages en route. The roads and lanes are perfect for cycling (in fact the Chateau lies on the route of an annual criterium road race that has been won by the likes of Eddie Mercx) so hire some bikes and enjoy a cycle into the village to get breakfast goodies from the boulangerie or try something more adventurous and take a picnic out for a long afternoon ride around the local villages.

If what's on offer at and around the Chateau is not enough then within 1 hours drive of Chateau Jautrudon there are many locations of interest. Here are just a few

 - Visit the Futuroscope but count on a long day of thrilling experiences

 - Visit the apes at Vallee des Signes

 - A cycle ride away in La Trimouille find the Iles aux Serpents

 - Visit Crocodile Planet in its tropical bio spheres

 - No vacation to France would be complete without a visit to the market. Les Herrolles is one of the biggest in France and just a 20 minute drive away.
