Surrounding area

The cottage is ideally located for a relaxing family holiday in the countryside with walking, cycling, fishing and kayaking on the river Boutonne.

The name of the department Deux Sevres is taken from two rivers named Sevres. One is in the Niortaise area near Niort and the other in the Nantaise areas near Nantes. The village, Le Vert, is right at the southern tip of this department. Dampiene sur Boutanne is the nearest village with local shops. It is an extremely pleasant village with a lovely chateau, bakers, hairdressers and grocers. Chize, in the opposite direction to Dampiene, and has a bank, bar, bakery and newsagent. Aulray is the nearest small town with a supermarket and local market. The beaches are within an hour drive away, and include La Rochelle and Chatelaillon-Plage. Surgeres is a lovely historical town with an unusual church and ramparts. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, bars and supermarkets with ample parking. The house has two adult bikes available (no Bradley Wiggins please.....) and there are lots of further activities to enjoy with details on the house notice board or on request in advance.
