Nearby to La Ferme de L’Église we are lucky enough to have a National race circuit, Circuit du Val de Vienne that hosts a wide variety of track events throughout the summer. Being only 40 minutes drive away, through beautiful countryside on fabulous roads, we are well placed to host parties travelling to Val de Vienne and wanting local holiday accommodation, or as a must visit day trip for any classic and/or race enthusiast.
The circuit hosts organised track days for bikes (at a very reasonable 90€) as well as a race driving school with a selection of Ferrari, Formula Renault Campus (mini F1 cars) and Clio Sport cars. Three configurations of track present a 3.7Km challenging circuit with plenty of overtaking spots for some gripping racing.
