Weather

Sunshine during the day. One thunder and lighting display, but no rain one evening. During the whole week I did not wear a jumper or a coat. Got caught in one very sharp shower mid morning.

Holiday

Excellent. This place is a treasure not to be missed.
Stayed at a very quiet secluded B & B just north of Fontenay le Comte (Maison Neuve Marsais Sainte Radegonde). Excellent hosts, great food and wine.
Perfect location for touring around.
Night life suited us--relax on the terrace after an evening meal with a glass of superb wine from the local Pissotte vineyard.

Weather

For 16 years we had a small house in the Vendee, in a village called Fontaine, near Angles.

We spent many happy holidays there, usually a week in March to open up the house, then two weeks during the summer, and another week in September to close the house for the winter.

During those years the weather was generally good, definitely warmer than in the UK, and we only once experienced freezing conditions. It rained sometimes of course, and there were the occasional thunderstorms. But never enough to spoil our visits to the area.

Holiday

We always enjoyed our trips to Fontaine and had very good neighbours who looked after the house and small garden during our absence.

No shops in the village, but Angles was 5 mins drive or 20 mins walk away. Nearest big towns were La Tranche-sur-Mer (long stretches of sandy beaches), Les Sables d'Olonne and La Roche-sur-Yon, about 30 mins drive away and a great shopping location.

Not much English spoken by local people, but if one tried to speak at least a little French they were very helpful and welcoming.

Fontaine and the surrounding area is on the edge of the Marais Poitevin and at St. Denis de Payre there is a wonderful wild life reserve where one can watch the coming and going of many birds through telescopes provided in the location.
