Ré and Aix.
The village is on the edge of a large forest and there are lots of places to walk and cycles.
Less than 5 kms from the house is the River Vendee where you can fish and there is good fishing and boating on the canals of Le Marais Poitevin , better known as Green Venice.
Lac de Chassenon has a beach with supervised swimming, it is great for the young children.
The Vendee apart from its beauty is filled with historic and fine architecture, notably the Abbaye of Maillezais or the Abbaye Royale in Nieul.
Within an hours drive of our cottage are the sandy beaches of the Vendée, including La Rochelle, Ile de Ré, Les Sables d'Olonne and La Tranche sur Mer. If you want a change of pace then the tranquil setting of the Marais Poitevin, with its Venise Verte waterways are just 20 minutes away. For kids of all ages the Futuroscope theme park is an hour away near Poitiers, and for the adults the famous Cognac houses are within easy reach for tours and tastings.
