Local Vendée region

The small hamlet of La Viollière is surrounded by gently rolling countryside made up of fields and small woods. A very rural retreat but easy to find and well connected for exploring, with the lovely coast or Saumur within easy reach for day trips. An ideal area to escape the hustle and bustle but with lots to see & do if you wish.
