Our area of the Marais Poitevin is also known as the Venise Verte (Green Venice) and is world renowned by artists who come here for the light, the variety in the innumerable shades of green and to capture the magic of this enchanting area. The landscape is criss-crossed by a system of canals lined by willows and poplar trees. The canals are surrounded by green vegetation which is where the name of Venise Vert originates. The river Sevre runs through our area and along the banks are many pretty villages including Coulon (often referred to as the capital of the Venise Vert), Damvix and Arcais. At each of the villages you can hire a flat bottom boat to explore the canals or just take a gentle stroll along the many quiet footpaths. We are just minutes away from some great fishing spots which are a paradise for fishermen and a local nature reserve which can be enjoyed by wildlife lovers.
15 minutes away is Fontenay-le-Comte our nearest town with the old town surrounding the catherdral, the Chateau de Terre Neuve, many shops, restaurants and a market every Saturday morning.

The forest has over 200 kilometres of well marked footpaths and offers some of the best walks to be found anywhere in the Vendée.

La Rochelle the third most visited town in France is a beautiful historic harbour town with numerous restaurants located around the port, a colourful daily food market and cosmopolitan shops.

You will also find one of the largest Aquariums in Europe with an amazing shark tank and marine life from all over the world. Anyone feeling a little adventurous can also take the local bus service from Vix to La Rochelle passing through some of the villages and small towns en route.
Located over the toll bridge from La Rochelle is the stunning island of the Ile de Re, known for its “fleur de sel” (the finest salt), sandy beaches and with over 100 kilometres of cycle routes (you can hire bikes on the Island) it is a paradise for cyclists. On the island you will find many villages and small towns to visit, one of the most famous being St Martin-de-Re which is a lively bustling town set around a harbour filled with brightly coloured boats. There are many chic boutiques to visit, along with a market which is open every morning, or enjoy a drink or a meal at the numerous cafés and restaurants on the harbour front.
