The nearest larger village with refreshment available is Mirebeau, part way between Loudun and Poitiers.
This ride is a gentle leg spin through the quiet lanes on the plain below Mirebeau. At Savigny-sous-Faye there is a chateau, a luxury break if you need one!
The lanes twist through the forest and farmland with a couple of small rises to keep the legs spinning. These roads are frequented by little more than farm traffic and keep you away from the busy routes running south, a chance to see the real rural France.
