Our Location

The house is situated close to the historic village of Faymoreau with it's own mining museum and 15 minutes from the medieval village of Vouvant. The River Mere flows through the village which is surrounded by a large forest with cycle routes, picnic areas and lakes for watersports. A fishing permit can be obtained from the Mayor's office locally to fish the local lake 5 minutes from the house. There is also a local golf course - The 'Renaissance' town of Fontenay Le Comte is 20 minutes with bars, restaurants and shops. Le Puy du Fou, Futuroscope and Pierre Braum theme parks are all within one hour's drive and there are many superb restaurants locally where the pleasures of French cuisine and wine can be experienced. Faymoreau is in the Vendee region which is located on the west coast of France. The sunny climate of the Vendee has been compared with that of the Cote d'Azur. The local area offers many interesting places to visit. The Atlantic coast port of Les Sables D'Olonne, from where the Vendee Globe yacht race starts and finishes, is one hour's drive away. It is a vibrant port with miles of golden sand and also has a zoo and an aquarium. La Tranche sur Mer and L'Aiguillon sur Mer are both a forty-five minute drive away and also offer miles of golden sand and are ideal for swimming and families. La Rochelle is an ancient, historic port with ramparts, towers and palaces. It is a bustling port and there are many waterside cafes specialising in freshly caught seafood where you can sample the local cuisine. On a Sunday morning, local French artists exhibit and sell their wares on the waterfront. La Rochelle has beaches, an aquarium and many other attractions including the Ile de Re which is well worth a visit and can be reached by a 3 km long bridge.
