Places to visit in the local area

The Vendée is famous for its green countryside, golden beaches and sunshine. The Southern Vendée has as many hours of sunshine as the south coast of France, and is home to the historic former capital of the Vendée, Fontenay-le-Comte.

Fontenay-le-Comte

Just 10 minues drive away - rich with history and architecture. At the heart of the old town with its steep cobbled streets is the medieval fountain which is the emblem of the town. Fontenay has many shops and several parks. The market is held every Saturday and Wednesday morning. Attractions include the Chateau de Terre Neuve, the Museum of the Vendée, Le Donjon des Cimes- a system of trampoline like nets suspended in the trees of Parc Baron, overlooking the old part of Fontenay, and the Eglise de Notre Dame.


La Rochelle

The Pearl of France’s Atlantic Coast, La Rochelle is a beautiful city with a completely unspoilt old port, lined with cafes and restaurants where you can sit and watch the world go by. It is also a vibrant city with excellent shops and there are even a couple of sandy beaches. Well worth a visit are the Aquarium and the Maritime Museum. 1 hour from Bourséguin.
