The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The local micro climate makes the southern Vendee one of the sunniest areas in France.

Vendee Beaches- The coast of the Vendee and Poitou-Charentes is well known for its fine sandy beaches and good weather. Beaches are numerous and are well within a 60 min drive away.

The Puy du Fou - In the north of the Vendee (just 45 mins away) this theme park for young or old is based on the history of the area, displaying events through live re-enactments of the highest quality; this is absolutely fabulous and many guests visit more than once. Don’t miss this!

La Rochelle-A beautiful and historic city just 60 mins away. The port is busy with yachts and from here you can go to the quay which has excellent restaurants. The 17th century town centre has extensive shopping facilities and the aquarium is the largest in Europe and has thousands of species from all over the world.

Wine - The local wines of the Vendee are well worth testing; there are a number of vineyards locally that offer tasting and direct sale.

Fontenay le Comte

'Moulin De Guinche' is situated in a hamlet called Ligne; it is peaceful but not isolated and is near the village of St Valerien which has a small bar/shop just 2 minutes away.

The micro-climate of the Vendee helps to make it one of the sunniest places in France with nearly 2,500 annual sunshine hours on average every year.

The larger Village of St Hermine is a 5 minute car ride away and has a choice of shops and restaurants.

St-Juire-Champion-Situated 4km north east of St Hermine and 8 km from Moulin De Guinche, is a pretty village with a fantastic restaurant! A must if you are visiting the area.

La Tranche sur mer is within easy reach, has 13km of sandy beaches and is a popular family resort, and is a paradise for surfers and wind surfers.

Merchant Forest-The forest and lakes of the Merchant/Vouvant forest have over 12,000 acres of woodland and are just a 15km drive.

La Venise Vert (Green Venice) with its canals and tree lined waterways, a fantastic day out. Boats can be hired and a rowing experince you will not forget. Enjoy a relaxing meal by the canal side and watch the world go by.

There are several celebrated sailing towns that stage regular regattas, like les Sables d’Olonne and Saint-Gilles. One place, however, that most epitomises the region’s close relationship with sea is the Ile de Noirmoutier. This is the larger of the Vendée’s two islands and, with its salt marshes, oyster farms and Maritime Museum, is coastal tradition incarnate.

The town of Fontenay le Comte is a short drive from Moulin De Guinche has several historic buildings and many shops and restaurants.
