Located in the beautiful Vendée, part of the Loire region, our 'petit chateau' is steeped in history. The entire residential history of the main house is recorded and dates back to 1341. Some of the external features - including a medieval vaulted cellar - date back to the 11th century.
The ideal base for your vacation in south Vendée with easy access to many key tourist attractions - Puy du Fou, 'Green Venice' Marais Poitevin, Mervent Forest with great outdoor pursuits, Futuroscope, La Rochelle, Vouvant and other historic beautiful towns and the spectacular Atlantic coast with it's wonderful beaches and maritime activites, all within an hour away. There is also the amazing Loire valley - famous for its incredible wine and breathtaking chateaux's and gardens.
