About 20km from the house is the Mervent – Vouvant Forest of 5000 hectares through which flow the Mere and Vendee Rivers. It’s ideal for walking (over 200km of footpaths), mountain biking & riding and there is also the fun park of Pierre Brune. Here there is a nautical centre where you can hire sailing and electric boats, canoes, kayaks, and bicycles. There is also the Natur’Zoo de Mervent an animal park in the forest.
