This is a private Hotel and we had to take our own suitcases to the room. This seems to be coming more prevalent on this coach tour. We were fortunate we were on the first floor as it takes quite some time too get 46 persons luggage into their rooms . The organisation at check in was efficient. We found our room very small but adequate. Fortunately we were only here 12 hours and we didn't unpack at all. The room was very clean and the staff helpful. The breakfast was satisfactory and we were generally pleased to be leaving. I would not go there again solely because of the size of the room. Its location in the village was excellent.

Nice boulangerie in the town.
Off to Angouleme. The cathedral was disappointing. Very sanitised. Modernised unsympathetically. Modern glass and painted walls! The town / city was pretty horrible too - grey, dirty and busy. We didn't enjoy the place, but at least we had a good night.
We were moving towards Poitiers, but it ...

We also had several coach excursions organized to the several different sites of interest in the area. These included the ancient fortress town of Chauvigny with its multiple castles and a collection of live birds of prey including ...
... the little villages tend to slow you down a bit. After booking into our hotel we found a Laverie down the road and managed to complete all the laundry requirements. After we strolled around Poitiers for a while, mainly the shopping area, which is quite big and very clean. It was pleasant to walk without the hustle and bustle of the larger cities.
Picked up some supplies for lunch on the road tomorrow and back to the hotel for a hot shower and a reasonably early night.
