The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

Situated on the Argenton in the Anjou wine-growing area. Delightful circular walks in gentle, well-wooded countryside. Wide range of bird- and wild-life. Great for cyclists on quiet country roads with little traffic. Within easy reach of the Loire and its chateaux, (Angers, Saumur, Chinon), Puy de Fou and Futuroscope theme parks, Green Venice and the Atlantic beaches of the Vendèe coast.

Second only to the Mediterranean for sunshine hours, enjoying a mild climate that savours all the seasons.
