Deux Sevres Office de Tourisme Guides

Our departments Tourism Office does a wonderful job in promoting the region. Every year they produce a fabulous full colour guide called Escapades which provides suggestions for places to visit and events that are planned to occur in the department during the year.

In addition to the Escapades guide they also produce a guide to walking routes in the department suitable for visitors keen to explore the natural beauty of the region.

Tourist Map of Deux Sevres

They also produce a tourist map of the Department which gives you a great idea of what to see and where to see it.

We have copies of these in the Gite for our guests – you can also view them online, download a copy or order copies for your personal use. Full information is available on the Deux-Sevres Tourisme website.

Play Total WipeOut

We love Parc de Pierre Brune, conveniently located less than 25 minutes drive from our Gite. There is plenty to do for kids of all ages and it makes for a great value day out for all the family. The Parc is very French and has a delightful slightly yesteryear feel to it which makes a visit even more memorable.

Parc Pierre Brune have added a new attraction this year which is similar to one of the challenges in the TV show Total WipeOut. There are differences of course. Firstly you don’t get wet if the sweeping arm knocks you off your perch and secondly you don’t have Richard “The Hamster” Hammond commentating on your performance.

Only 10?

France Today recently published an article entitled 10 reasons to visit the Vendee, maybe they were working to a deadline. It’s a great article to read but we can think of a lot more reasons to come visit the Vendee. Our Gite provides a great base from which to go and explore this beautiful department in France.
