Driving directions

From Poitiers and the North

From Calais, Dieppe and the Northern ferry ports follow Rouen, Le Mans, Tours, Poitiers mainly on A28/A13 (From Le Havre head for Le Mans first). Poitiers can be reached on the A10 or N10.

La Roseraie is 40 mins south of Poitiers. When you get to Poitiers follow signs for N10 / D951 for Angouleme (don't take A10 to Niort) and follow this for 30 mins till you get to the Couhé (Nord) turn off. This is also signposted La Vallée des Singes and this is a useful sign to follow if all else fails as we are right next to it.

You will drive into Couhé and at the brow of the hill you'll see Intermarché - turn left here. Follow this road and La Vallée signs (D158 then D27) to Romagne (you'll pass through Vaux en Couhé). In centre of Romagne turn right (you'll see church on left and Auberge du Marronnier on right) and take 2nd turning left signposted to Beauvais and Chez Sicault (small pond and Chalet de Neccessité on right). Follow this road for 2 km. You come into Chez Sicault, pass a road to the right and we are on the right - green gates and sign.

From Limoges Airport and the South

Distance : 100 km

From airport follow signs for Angouleme (green) and St Julien via N520 until you are on N141 (3-5 km – dual carriageway)

After 30 km leave N141 at Jct 68 signposted Niort (green) Etagnac and Confolens. Turn right at roundabout on to D941 in direction of Niort, Confolens and Etagnac.

Keep following signs to these places (D941 then D948) and go through Etagnac, Chabrac and St Maurice des Lions.

After 20 km arrive in Confolens – go over river (beautiful bridges) and follow signs to Niort and Poitiers on D948

After 35 km come to Savigne (next to Civray) and pass Intermarche on right (still on D148).  Go straight over first roundabout next to Intermarche (D148) then at second roundabout take first right (D148, Niort), then at 3rd roundabout take 2nd exit signposted ROMAGNE , Poitiers (D1)

You are 13 km away now! Go straight up D1 through Vergne then Champagne Lureau. 2 km after at brow of hill turn left signposted BLANZAY and Chateau D’Epanvilliers (D28)

From this point you will be surrounded by fields and crops and will have always ahead of you and to your left a tall water tower. You will pass two ‘crossroad’ signs (in both cases very small roads to left and right) and then, after 3 km you the water tower will be close to your diagonal left. Here you will see the third ‘crossroad’ sign’ and also two roads to your left but you are going to turn RIGHT where there is a number of small signs including ‘La vallee des Singes’ and ‘La Ferme des Autruches’ (Ostrich Farm) – these are all ‘La Vienne’ tourist signs and there is no road number just lots of fields).

4 km away now. You will see a sign for Labyrinthe Vegetal after about 2 km then will pass through a hamlet called Brehus. Then pass large wooden new barn on left (part of vallee des singes – monkey park) and then lots of fencing/building for the monkey park on your left– ignore first road to right after this (at right angles to road, signposted ‘Etourloubier’) and then take the right fork (left fork goes to ‘La vallee des singes’) which brings you into Chez Sicault (small sign on right – don’t take the left turn) – 200 metres straight ahead you will see the sign for La Roseraie on your left – you’ve made it!

If you end up at the small roundabout at the entrance to the monkey park (La Vallée des Singes) then, with the park behind you, go straight over roundabout (2nd exit), turn left at T junction and you will come into Chez Sicault and again we are 200 metres on the right.
