This is a very well situated house in a quiet dormitory village sitting on the Vende river and about 5mins drive from Fontenoy. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and rewards walks out and around the village which also has a superb park and sports centre....More

About the neighbourhood
Our village is a charming, peaceful place. It is right on the edge of the Mervent Forest, a vast nature lover's paradise of wooded valleys and lakes perfect for cycling, walking, sailing and canoeing. The beautiful public park stretches out starting just next to the house and covering the length of the village with its fields, running circuit, tennis court, boules pitch and children's play area, all free to use for those staying in the village. The boulangerie for fresh croissants, bread and amazing cakes, is just at the top of the hill in Pissotte, reachable by a 5 minute cycle ride or even early morning jog! The historic capital of the Vendée before Napoleon's time, Fontenay le Comte is only 3km away, with its imposing cathedral, quaint old streets, and all modern services including...
Getting around
Bikes are perfect for many local sights including Mervent forest, Vouvant, Mervent village, and many local cycle paths. (There are some interesting hills in places though!). Bikehiredirect will rent you bikes and deliver to the door if you don't have your own. Cycling is also the best way to see the Ile de Ré if you take a day trip over there, drive your bikes to the La Rochelle side of the bridge and cycle over for free. Or you can hire bikes on the island. Cars are very useful for the less energetic, or further away sights, and parking is free in the main town Fontenay and in most other local villages.
