Gites Near Mervent Forest

The Mervent Forest - Officially known as The Mountain forest of Mervent-Vouvant is located 12 kilometres north of Fontenay le Comte and is the largest forest in the Vendée.
Consisting of over 5000 hectares of mainly beech trees, oak trees  and sweet chestnut trees, it is a haven of tranquility for both people and wildlife alike. The forest has  over 200 kilometres of well marked footpaths and offers some of the best walks to be found anywhere in the Vendée. There are also trails marked out for mountain biking and horse riding. The forest rises steeply from the banks of the lakes and affords stunning views and in several places you can get dramatic panoramic views over the canopy of trees to the lakes and the
river below.
The lakes contain a profusion of Perch, Pike, Carp and Eels and fishermen are plentiful. The lakes also contain the normal amphibians including edible frogs, which are now illegal to catch and kill. The forest is home to a wide variety of birds including Black Kites, Kingfishers, the extremely rare Short Toed Eagle and two rare varieties of Magpie. Among the many mammals both Deer and wild Boar can be found and during the season there is a vibrant hunting community.
Two rivers the Mère and the Vendée flow through the forest and have been dammed in four places to form lakes containing 14,000,000 cubic metres of water.
Attractions at Mervent Forest include:
Fun park of Pierre Brune 
Base Nautical centre - where you can hire sail boats, canoes, kayaks and electric boats, swim. Bicycles can also be hired here. 
Village hall in Mervent is probably the best place see the panoramic view of the forest and the lake.
Park Zoological de Mervent - within its 5 hectares of grounds there are over five hundred animals and a cactus collection. Although small it is very popular with families as they have a small petting farm where the children are introduced to the friendly residents.
The Mervent forest is one of the jewels of the Vendée and no matter what time of the year you visit it will always have treasures to reveal.
