Access to the manor grounds
The cottage is situated on the grounds of a 16th-century bourgeoise manor, a haven of tranquillity, ideally situated for adventurers to discover in the most historic area of France - The Vendee. Located outside the small village of Monsireigne, we are found just 20 minutes from the A83 motorway.
The beautiful Vendée region is known for its long summer days, courtesy of its unique micro-climate. Its rolling “bocage” countryside hides a thriving tourist economy, with many local attractions such as the Puy du Fou – voted the world’s best theme park, walking and cycling paths, water sports, fishing spots, fine restaurants, and some of the best sandy beaches in Europe.
There are many activities in the area and suitable for all ages groups.
