About this location
The Poitou-Charentes region
The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
Situated on the Argenton in the Anjou wine-growing area. Delightful circular walks in gentle, well-wooded countryside. Wide range of bird- and wild-life. Great for cyclists on quiet country roads with little traffic. Within easy reach of the Loire and its chateaux, (Angers, Saumur, Chinon), Puy de Fou and Futuroscope theme parks, Green Venice and the Atlantic beaches of the Vendèe coast.
Second only to the Mediterranean for sunshine hours, enjoying a mild climate that savours all the seasons.
Argenton Les Vallees
Pretty countryside with many wayside chapels on ancient routes to Compostella in Spain. Bressuire boasts a fine chateau with art exhibitions and riverside walk, and is home to an international Highland games event. A new centre, the Bocapole, stages shows and diverse entertainments.
There are several cinemas and theatres and many local fairs, markets, music events and restaurants. Thouars has a large market, museums and galleries and Chateau Oiron, a magnificent building housing both modern and traditional art.
