At the point where the prairie rolls over into the bocage just east of Fontenay-le-Comte lies the village of St. Hilaire des Loges.

This pleasant village has a wide and open square at its centre, the ancient church, strong and large is typical of the area. There is an interesting 19th century market hall built in the style of Victor Baltard who built the 19th century markets in Paris.
Towns like nearby Fontenay-le-Comte were strongly Protestant and the Loges de Brion 1570 was used by the cult. Confiscated during the Revolution it passed into wealthy local hands before being aquired by the local community as the Maire.
