We are a Dutch family who decided to move to France, the holiday destination par excellence. Our dream was to start a chambre d’hotes, so we decided to make the bold move and came here to Journet. Here the countryside is still pristine and unsullied, with every opportunity to enjoy peace and quiet, cultural activities and, if you need them, plenty of exciting adventure pursuits.
Why have we chosen Journet?
Journet is a small village in the department of Vienne, close to the department capital, Poitiers, and located in the region of Poitou-Charentes.
It’s a small, peaceful village in an area where the winters are mild and summers are long with agreeable temperatures. From Journet it’s possible to embark on any number of day trips and activities.
What do we offer?
Journet is located in an area with lots of choice. There are many established pathways for those who love to hike and/or cycle, sited in a gently rolling landscape with picturesque old French villages and towns. The nearest town is Montmorillon, also called the Cité de l’écrit, where in the old part of the town you’ll find numerous bookshops and art-material stores. For our guests who prefer more exciting activities you can go bungee-jumping, climbing, rafting or kayaking.
All these activities are located within 30 kilometers of Journet.
