The French village of Vouvant




The village of Vouvant the castle keep

The village of Vouvant the keep

The village of Vouvant

Vouvant is one of the prettiest villages in France it is in the Vendee region a few miles from Fontenay.

We found it quite by chance just driving around i saw a sign in English which said the most beautiful village in France.

We had to turn off and have a look,the village is beside a river which flows round both sides and forms a natural defence moat.

There is some of the castle keep left standing see picture and some of the walls.

It was June 2008 when we visited a very hot day 90f but like a lot of rural france the village was deserted people only come back at the weekends.

It was nice to have the place to ourselves there a very old church some interesting little streets plus free parking.

There are a few shops, bars and a restaurant or two

This house in nearby La Châtaigneraie looks an interesting place to stay If you are visiting the area. I remember driving through the town at midnight looking for the gite we had rented. It is one of the reason I got a sat nav. It dose make finding places a lot easier
