At La Panneterie you can spend the day simply relaxing by the pool, playing croquet or badminton, enjoying a glass of wine or going for a bicycle ride. There is a 60km cycle track less than 1km from the property that will take you through the picturesque countryside of the Entre-Deux-Mers. We also have plenty of outdoor toys to share.
