Mining city classified "Small city of character", the village and its corons, museum center mining
Faymoreau

The village of Faymoreau nestles discreetly and quietly in lush greenery, at the bend of a small road.

A bucolic universe, fishermen's paradise with its pond lined with small pontoons and wooden cabins full of charm. A mining village where time seems to have stopped when one strolls in the small streets marked with chalk, flanked on each side with identical houses, with window sills or door thresholds delicately blooming.

One day in 1827, a modest sabotier discovered, while digging a well, a vein of coal. From there begins for the whole region of Faymoreau, a great adventure that will last 130 years (1827 to 1958). People from here and elsewhere, united by courage and solidarity, arrive in the mining basin to extract the "black gold" of the time.

Men, their sons, and their grandsons descend into the bowels of the earth at the risk of their lives.

The headframes shape the bocage landscape. Companies such as the glassworks and the power plant come into being to consume coal. The working village, organized by the mining company a few steps from the old town, is developing with the construction of corons, the direction, the chapel, schools… February 28,1958, the mine closes permanently. Today, mining history is not forgotten. The corons are still inhabited and the cultivated gardens, the windows of Carmelo Zagari illuminate the Chapel of Minors, the museum located in the former dormitory of glassmakers brings back the glorious industrial past of the mining basin Faymoreau.

Reopening after work of the Musée Faymoreau Mining Center in June 2018

Welcome to one of the largest swamps in Europe !

Straddling Deux-Sèvres, Charente-Maritime and Vendée, the Poitevin Marsh, which covers 111,200 hectares, is France's second largest wetland area after the Camargue. The area is full of diverse natural habitats and exceptional biodiversity, and is a stopping place for many migrant birds…

The landscape mosaic of the Poitevin Marsh Regional Natural Park is unique, with the coastal area alternating between sandy beaches, dunes and forests, but also cliffs and mudflats on the Bay of Aiguillon side; the wet marsh and its famous Green Venice, a listed Great Site of France, where countless conches (narrow canals) and wider tree-lined canals can be seen; the dried marsh, with vast expanses of crops and meadows; and the edges of the marsh, with plains covered in cultivated fields.

A favourite destination for nature-lovers, the Poitevin Marsh is home to incredible wildlife ranging from the European otter to the European tree frog through the purple heron and the greater horseshoe bat. No fewer than 250 species of birds, 38 species of fish, 60 species of dragonflies and 80 species of butterflies are listed there!

To discover the charms of the wet marsh, a destination in the Poitevin Marsh that's highly prized by lovers of romantic getaways, nothing beats a boat trip in the heart of the mysterious Green Venice, on peaceful canals interwoven with greenery: you are guaranteed a change of scene, where trees and other plants form a kind of vault between water and sky! Many visitors to the Park choose to explore it on foot or by bicycle, to take the time to savour the beauty of the wild, unspoilt countryside at their own pace.

The Poitevin Marsh Park also boasts a rich water industry heritage, and invites you to discover its harbours, locks, hydraulic works, footbridges, fountains and washhouses. For more urban sightseeing, you have the choice between its charming, characterful little towns, such as Arçais, Coulon or Nieul-sur-l'Autise, and gateway cities like Fontenay-le-Comte, Niort, Luçon and Marans. Religious architecture enthusiasts, meanwhile, won't want to miss a chance to visit Maillezais Abbey and see its remarkable relics, a listed Historic Monument.

During your stay in the Poitevin Marsh, you should also make the most of the local gastronomy. Authentic and flavoursome, it gives pride of place to the products of fishing and shellfish farming, not to mention specialities such as farci poitevin, a delicious terrine of green vegetables, frogs' legs, snails, coypu and ham with mogette beans!

Priory of the twelfth century
Grammont - Saint-Prouant
02 51 66 47 18

Cultural Site of the Department of Vendée

In the heart of the Chassay forest, the Priory of Grammont is a miniature abbey in a green setting.

In the twelfth century, thanks to the numerous donations of the Plantagenets kings reigning over Poitou, a new monastic order was established, the order of Grandmont.

Around 1197, Richard Lionheart, very attached to this province, decided to continue the business of his father by founding a new grandmontain monastery. Thus the priory of Grammont is born, in the heart of the forest of Chassay, on the site of an old parish.

Soon, the monastery is supported by the community of Grandmontains monks, who apply the strict rule initiated by Etienne de Muret.

The end time of the observation is decided freely and individually by the trainees. In the summer, a night of observation can easily end at 4am, but everyone stops the observation when they wish. Hot drinks and "snacks" during the night are offered.

A two-day internship

Depending on the weather conditions and your trainee desires, the schedule may vary. Different themes can indeed be developed in these courses (History of astronomy, history of astronomical navigation, astrophotography, art and astronomy…).

2 mills with majestic wings on the heights of the Small City of Character of Pouzauges
Rue du terrier marteau - -Pouzauges
07 68 26 23 23

These two twin windmills spread their majestic wings on the heights of the Small City of Character of Pouzauges.

On the hills of Pouzauges, in a site with a remarkable panorama, are two windmills dating from the 18th and 19th century. They have a slightly frustoconical shape. They reach 8 m in height. The conical roof is 5 meters high and weighs 4.5 tons. The roof is mobile and is therefore simply placed on the body of mill. It can turn to move the wings of which it is integral.

The two mills turned for a century for the manufacture of flour. The industrial age is changing the situation with the emergence of mechanical mills. The Mills of the Marteau Terrier do not work as much or more at all. They could have fallen into ruins like all the other mills if the Fleury-Michon company had not bought the mills in the 50s. A person is then responsible for making them work. After a more difficult period, especially when the wings break in 2016, the mills turn again thanks to the investment and the motivation of the volunteers of the association "The Friends of the Twin Mills of the Marteau Terrier".

After 15 years of sleep, their majestic wings once again reach the heights of the city.

Wheat crushed at the mill becomes flour and some days the baker turns it into bread that he bakes in the wood oven for the happiness of the visitors.

The mini-farm captivates the children, while the biggest discover the wheat route and the life of the mills.

7,000 years of Vendée history in 6 dedicated rooms, innovative and evolving museum
Allée Paul Bazin - Les Lucs-sur-Boulogne
02 28 85 77 77

Cultural Site of the Department of Vendée

The museum, which was founded on the banks of the Boulogne, is innovative and largely influenced by North American institutions. The museography was imagined and conceived by a service of the Departmental Council of Vendée : The Departmental Conservation of the Museums of the Vendée.

Five main principles have been retained for the design of this museum of a new kind :

Strong presence of interactivity and new technologies

"Desacralization" of the museum by the permanent alliance between knowledge and entertainment

Interest in very young children, considered a full audience

Theatricalization of the exhibitions and the art of the staging with a respect of the standards of conservation of the collections

Museography consisting of large architectural decorations, audiovisual projections, lighting and shows

In a constant concern for scalability, the architects have designed flexible spaces whose main element is a technical grill that overlooks museum spaces more than 6 meters high.

The Historial is the first French museum with such a device, like those found in television and movie studios.

On Fridays and Saturdays, from June to mid-September, the fabulous Cinéscénie show brings together no less than 1,200 actors who bring the history of the Vendée back to life from the Middle Ages to the Second World War. Grandiose !

The Grand Parc Puy du Fou, which covers 45 hectares, is really something to delight young and old, with its historic villages such as the medieval city, the village of the eighteenth century, the fort of the year millet and the village 1900, and its shows such as the Sign of Triumph, the Secret of the Lance, the Gladiators, the Vikings, the Ball of the Ghost Birds, the Musketeer of Richelieu, the Organs of Fire or the Last Panache.

A wonderful trip in the past !

Our family estate is located in the heart of the Vendée Bocage. The vineyard of 30 hectares is distributed on the slopes of the Lay in Chantonnay.

In addition to a diversity of soils, we enjoy an oceanic climate and a privileged sunshine.

Our wines have other ambition than to reflect our terroirs, our grape varieties and the work of men. They are the result of manual work and vineyards cultivated with respect for the environment.

Geographic location

The estate is located in the heart of the Vendée near the Atlantic Ocean. The vineyard, under oceanic influence, enjoys the highest temperatures in the Loire Valley.

Its main originality is the diversity of terroirs linked to fragmentation (Fiefs). There are four of them on the highest Lay de Vendée slopes, which contribute to the complexity of our wines.

Monday to Friday: 14h30-18h

A family, a passion…

… a know-how, a signature

The history of the Vignoble dates back to the Gallo-Roman period. The clay-limestone hill on which our vines are planted was once an island. By visiting our Domaine, you will notice that from the cellar, one benefits from an exceptional point of view on the whole marsh poitevin, formerly covered by the sea.

The Mercier family has been dedicated to the wine-growing tradition since 1890. The development of the Domaine is closely linked to the activity of the Winegrower for whom family know-how is universally recognized.
