Situated close to the Mervent Forest just 12kms north of Fontenay-le Comte, this attractive village has an old church and a beautiful château with a moat.
The church dates from 1445 and while renovation work was carried out in
1886 they discovered the funeral chapel, built in the Renaissance style,
of the young Marie du Puy-du-Fou. It has the most delicate and
exquisite of decorations.
The Chateau was until recently the property of the Marshal Lattre
Foundation and one could walk freely around the grounds, but now the
château is in private hands and one can only view the grounds from
outside of the château gates.
