Fontenay-le-Comte

  • English
    • A very pretty town, nestled on the edge of the Vendée bocage. Rewarded by the labels "City and Country of Art and History", as well as "The Most Beautiful Detours of France", do not miss to stop there to enjoy the beautiful facades of villas and mansions of the 16th century. To fully appreciate the architectural gems of Fontenay-le-Comte, stroll through the historic heart by following the 42 signs on offer like a discovery circuit. The medieval alleys, the arcaded squares, the half-timbered and half-timbered facades, the Quatre Tias fountain… For aficionados of new technologies, there are 2 walks to do with an audio guide. Available at the Tourist Office

      • There is a Museum which is also an Interpretation Center in Fontenay-le-Comte. There are archaeological collections, costumes, paintings and temporary exhibitions.

      • The Château de Terre Neuve, which dates from the 16th century, can be discovered on a free visit in a fully furnished environment. What will surprise you is that it is still inhabited and all year round! Guided or free tours, to do with the family while enjoying the gardens, the shop and the small museum.

      • Unusual: Observe (cannot be visited) the 8-level, octagonal Rivalland Tower, a Freemasonry construction that will arouse your curiosity…

      • Children will let off steam at the Dungeon of the peaks, in a green setting. And if that's not enough, there is a nice trampoline park: the Parcabout in the pretty Parc Baron, flanked by round towers and sections of ancient walls.

      • East of Fontenay-le-Compte, take a detour towards Nieul-sur-l'Autise to discover a pretty little village and the splendid Abbey of Nieul-sur-l'Autise which has a beautiful museum trail for her discovery.
