Bazoges-en-Pareds is situated in the Bas Bocage region approximatly half way between Chantonnay and La Chataigneraie.
As one approaches this quiet village that nestles in the peaceful
countryside of the South Vendée one cannot fail to see the striking
tower of the Donjon, which can literally be seen from many kilometres away in all directions standing like a castle tower from Don Qixote's Spain.
This X1V century Medieval Donjon, or castle keep, has been restored to
its formal glory, the spiral staircase rises for six floors to the
thirty meter ramparts which give spectacular views of the medieval
gardens, the village and surrounding countryside.
The Donjon is open to the public as a museum, as are the medieval
gardens which contain a good collection of plants and herbs which would
have been grown in medieval times.
There is also an excellent pigeon house which has been restored.
Also of note in Bazoges-en-Pareds is the medieval church and the Restaurant the Auberge de la Donjon.
