Couleuvre is a small village, about 10 km. from the huge Tronçais forest. The village has a small swimming-pool, tennis-court, playground, (all of them free admission) restaurant, cafe and a shop. The Tronçais has 3 big lakes which provide all sorts of water recreation and beaches for swimmers. There are many inexpensive restaurants in the area, lots of cultural events and brocantes, and lovely authentic villages and towns. This is the perfect place for hikers, with many signposted walks.The hills are small, traffic is low, so biking is good, and last but not least, so is the weather, on the whole..
