The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The Poitou- Charentes region has one of the mildest climates in France with an annual average of over 2,000
hours of sunshine.
The Deux Sevres department is easily accessed by road and the airports of Poitiers, La Rochelle, Limoges and Angouleme are within a short drive.
The area is largely rural and the slower pace of country life provides a welcome contrast to the hectic bustle of the city.
Attractions such as Futuroscope, Marais Poitevin (Green Venice) and La Vallee des Singes (close encounters with monkeys) are all nearby.
The vibrant market towns of Lezay , Sauze Vaussais and Melle offer a wide range of shopping, eating and leisure activities including excellent open air heated swimming pools.
There are pretty fishing lakes in nearby Sauze Vassais and Chef Bouton which are great for walking, picnics or BBQs and have play and activity areas.
As well as the local swimming pools the river Charente provides safe family bathing areas, a variety of boat trips and a good selection of water sports.
Melle has several notable Romanesque churches as well as ancient silver mines which are open to the public and once supplied silver to the Kings of France.
