Fontenay-le-Comte, nicknamed the architectural pearl of the Vendée, has been awarded the prestigious "Ville d'Art et d'Histoire" and "Plus Beaux Détours de France" labels and is best known for its Renaissance style. However, each period of history has endowed it with a unique heritage: the arcades of the Place Belliard, the half-timbered houses, the Gobin-Fourestier hotel opposite the Fontaine des Quatre Tias (the town's emblem), the remains of the Parc Baron castle, the Château de Terre-Neuve where Georges Simenon lived.
Nearby in the surrounding countryside: Vouvant, a medieval town among the "Most Beautiful Villages in France" and labelled "Petite Cité de Caractère", as well as Foussais-Payré, in Renaissance style, not forgetting Mervent, a "Station Verte" (green holiday resort). In the Pays de Fontenay-Vendée, enjoy unforgettable experiences... for two, as lovers, with family or friends!
