The hamlet of La Viollière is just 2kms outside the village of Breuil Barret, which has a bar/restaurant
with outside seating, a good boulangerie/épicerie, tennis court, lovely old church and two hairdressers!
Several marked walks being from the village centre.

Banks, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and good outdoor swimming pool are to be found at our nearest town, La Châtaigneraie (6kms). The local leisure lake, for fishing and woodland picnic area (with café & pool during high season) is just minutes away.

We are very well placed for wide and varied exploring. It is approximately1hr 15mins to the long, sandy beaches of the West Coast, 1hr 20mins to Saumur, chateaux and vineyards of the Loire Valley and about the same distance to Poitiers and Futuroscope. The tranquil water ways of the Venise Verte and Puy du Fou (famous parc of Vendée history) are both about 45 minutes drive.

There are many local activities too, such as walking, cycling, horse riding, boating/
swimming in the forest and lakes of Mervent or, for the more adventurous, Micro-
lite 'baptism' flights, go-karting and tree-top adventure courses! The area is full of
interesting towns, villages and sites, such as the picturesque medieval village of
Vouvant or Fontenay le Comte (ancient capital of the Vendée), the donjon at
Bazoges en Pareds and there are chateaux, museums, weekly markets and
small local wine producers to visit.
