La Moderation

Situated in the south of the Deux Sevres region of the Poitou Charentes, La Moderation is in the ideal position for those wanting to explore this beautiful region, or just to sit back and relax in the sun.

Our gite, is a former barn attached to the end of the main building of this ancient farm dating from the 1800’s which we now run as a small family camping and caravan site in the south of the Deux Sevres. We are in the heart of

the Poitou Charentes region, “La Couer de la Charente”. This area has on average around 2400 hours

of sunshine every year, and is second only to Provence and the Côte d' Azur!  Because it is largely undiscovered, we do not have the crowds of tourists that you will find in some of the other better known tourist regions  in France. This secret area has conserved its tranquility and the unspoiled beauty of authentic rural France.

In summer the golden fields of sunflowers are a real treat for the eyes and the surrounding countryside is fairly flat, open farmland.  There are plenty of pleasant walks along tracks which are also ideal for cycling, with only occasional traffic. There is plenty of wildlife especially the birds of prey and if you are lucky you may see some of the small deer that roam the wooded areas and fields around us.
