Less than 5 kms from the house is the River Vendée where you can fish and there is good fishing and boating on the canals of Le Marais Poitevin (12 kms). Lac de Chassenon has a beach with supervised swimming. There are several footpaths and cycle paths leading from the house. Mervent adventure park is a must for children and adults and is only 15 mins away. The village of Vouvant was voted the prettiest village in the Vendee with spectacular views
