The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The pretty historic village of Moncontour offers river and forest walks and 11th century donjon. In the midst of fields of sunflowers, vineyards, melons, lavender and wild life you will find the area a sensory delight. To the edge of Moncontour is a water sports lake which offers water skiing, mini golf, children's play area, beach and auberge.

Just 30 minutes south from the Loire Valley and its beautiful chateaux and 45 minutes north of Poitiers and its famous theme park Futuroscope. More locally there are historic Romanesque Abbeys including Fontrevraud which houses the tombs of Richard the Lionheart, Henry II and Eleanor of Acquitaine. Also roman bridges and less famous though more beautiful chateaux such as that of Oiron which houses an exhibition all year and events within the grounds.

An ideal location for holidaying, it is also excellent for house hunting and a good stop off point when travelling between north and south of France.

Moncontour, Vienne
