The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
This region has as many hours of sunshine as the south of France. To the south of Mareuil-Sur-Lay there are the flat fen lands of the Marais Poitevan, a haven for marsh wild life and birds, and where the famous green Venice and pretty towns of Coulon and Vix can be visited. Close by, the countryside becomes small rolling hills covered in vines for the local and little known Mareuil label wines. To the West are the golden Atlantic beaches stretching for miles behind forests of pines. The historic towns of La Rochelle and Fontenay Le Compte can be visited, and the newer towns of Les Sables d'Olonne and La Roche Sur Yon. The parks of Puy Du Fou and Futurscope are within easy reach.
Mareuil sur Lay
Visit Le Puy Du Fou, Futuroscope, the Aquarium at La Rochelle, Atlantic Water Park or the Museum of Motoring. Visit the local vineyards to sample the wines of the area. Enjoy the local markets and fairs. You can eat out in many local restaurents where a three course meal is reasonably priced.
