The Pays de la Loire region

The Vendee is the southern most department in the Pays de la Loire region. Sitting at the edge of a rennowed microclimate, we enjoy beautiful summers and mild winters. You can reach the chateaux of the Loire valley within one and a half hours, the North Vendeen coastline. and Ile de Noirmoutier. The famous Vendeen theme park Puy du Fou is 1 hour drive away. Closer by are lakeside beaches, the ancient forest at Mervent, with a zoo and adventure parks and many picturesque smalll villages (petites cites de caractere).

We are fortunate that our village sits right at the edge of the Marais Poitevin. Also known as the Venise Verte (Green Venice) this is a vast area of a network of canals which were reclaimed from the sea. Abounding with wildlife, lovely walks, cycle paths, there are also many port areas close by which offer the opportunity to take a boat out on the Marais, whether independantly or as part of a guided tour the choice is yours.

Oulmes is situated very close to the neighbouring departments of Deux-Sevres and Charente-Maritime, both part of the Poitou-Charente region. The departments have lovely inland scenery and a beautiful coastline including the port city of La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Fort Boyard, Fouras and Ile d'aix.

Within 1 hour drive you can reach the cities of Poitiers (with he Futuroscope theme park), Nantes, and Tours.

Fontenay-le-Comte

Withiin a 5 minute walk you can reach all the facilities of our village including, bar/tabac, park area, post office, bar/restaurant with take away pizzeria, boulangerie with groceries, hairdresser and garage.

The neighbouring village of Nieul sur l'autise boasts the Abbey of Eleanor d'Aquitaine, a lovely park area with walks along the river, two restaurants, a chemist, doctor, butcher, bakery, post office and grocery store.

If you don't feel like the hour drive to the coastal resorts of the South Vendee then a 20 minute drive will take you to the Lac de Chassenon which has a paddling area, water slides, cafe, toilets, picnic facilities and playground. Under lifeguard supervison in the afternoons during the summer months, this is a very popular site with local residents.

Don't forget the port areas of the Marais, including Coulon, Maillezais, Le Mazeau, Azire...
