This now quiet small village on the edge of the bas bocage was the home of some of the mightiest lords of the region in its medieval past, but even before that time the area was inhabited as can be seen in the Dolmen de Pierres-Folles on the St.Gilles-croix-de Vie road about one kilometre from the village. It is suggested that the footprint of the Virgin Mary can be seen on one of the stones.

The railway brought prosperity to the region in the nineteenth century, but by the end of the twentieth century the line had been closed. Today however it is the starting point for Velo Rail which takes one along the disused railway using your own power.

Without doubt the main attraction in Commequiers is the castle or Château Commequiers which attracts visitors to the regular shows and displays during the summer season, and also those who just like to come all year round an enjoy this most enchanting little moated castle.
