Whilst there is no private garden with this property, Vouvant is officially recognised as one of France’s most beautiful villages as well as a ‘petite cité de caractère’. It is exactly what you imagine when you think of authentic medieval french towns. Surrounded by the verdant countryside of the Vendée, Vouvant is extremely pretty and there are lots of outside spaces to just sit and enjoy the sunshine or the shade and watch the world go by.
Situated within a large bend in the river Mere, historical buildings, including the Melusine Tower and ancient 11th Century ramparts and an integral part of the town. Wandering around the quaint little streets and artisan’s workshops, cafés, bars and restaurants are all part of the charm. There is a strong community spirit and the locals are clearly very proud of their town and in July and August there is a wonderful Medieval festival.
If you are keen on outdoor pursuits, there is plenty in the area to enjoy - lots of walking trails, horse-riding, cycling, golf, tennis and the beach is just an hour away for keen swimmers, sailors and surfers.
La Rochelle airport is just over an hour away, and is served by Easyjet, Jet2 and Ryanair. La Rochelle is also a stop on the TGV. The closest ferry port would be Saint Malo which is a 3hr 15mins drive.
