The village of Bazoges en Pareds



Places to see in Bazoges en Pareds

The French village of Bazoges en Pareds is just 15 miles from Fontenay in the Vendee region.

We rented a farmhouse 1 mile outside the village it took us longer to find the house than drive the 350 miles from Calais or so it seemed.

The village proved to be a good choice for a base to tour the Vendee area there was lots to see and do within 1 hours drive.We liked the coastal areas around the Port of La Rochelle.

The village of Bazoges en Pareds the tower

The first picture shows the old tower keep build in 1300s and still in good condition.

Bazoges is like most french villages every body works away in the week so it is very quite.

So We were surprised to find at the back of the tower an information shop fully open with english speaking staff.

Who gave us the key to the front door of the keep to and have a look around.

The keep was about 6 floors all with furniture and knight`s armour swords bows.

The view from the top of the tower is well worth the effort of climbing all those stairs

The village of Bazoges en Pareds picture

When we visited the area in June we needed a Gite for 8 people for a week

We found our Gite for 200 GBP for the week a bargain.

If you are visiting France outside of July and August you can find some good deals.The Vendee covers a fare sized area of France on our next visit we are going to stay on the coast near to St. Gilles-Croix-de-Vie.

Which looks a good area to stay. We liked the look of this cottage a short distance from the beaches

Vendee gite to rent picture

This attractive stone cottage is situated in a quiet rural hamlet, just outside Aizenay, and 20 minutes from the beautiful beaches of St. Gilles-Croix-de-Vie.

The building features exposed beams and stonework, and the under-floor heating and log fire makes it a cosy retreat for out of season breaks.

It has its own sunny terrace and garden as well as a shared Jacuzzi for 5-6 people.

The surrounding area offers plenty of holiday activities - day trips to the coast
