The property is just at the edge of a village with basic shops and is about 12kms from the town of Fontenay-le-Comte.
This historic town is truly one of the most beautiful in the Vendée, perhaps even one of the loveliest in France. Walk the 'mille ans d'histoire' route, and discover for yourself a thousand years of history encapsulated in the architecture and the ancient street names. Then enjoy the more modern pleasures afforded by the numerous excellent restaurants, shops and other leisure activities.
Fontenay-Le-Comte is in fact three cities in one, laid out as it is in three concentric circles. Each circle represents a different era of the town's history. The inner circle, which is walled, contains the oldest part of the town, dating back to mediaeval times. This is surrounded by the Renaissance city, built in the 15th and 16th centuries, and finally there is the outer city, the modern commercial centre.
This is the ideal area for the great outdoors. In the Poitevin marshes, known as the Green Venice of the West, it is possible to punt along the canals and obtain a fascinating insight into the flora and fauna unique to this unusual environment. Then, for a totally different experience, walk, ride or cycle in the beautiful Mervent forest.
