Moricq has a boulangerie, a bar and a supermarket and the larger town of Angles is a pleasant walk or short car-ride away. Angles has a range of shops and services as well as twice-weekly summer markets and regular outdoor entertainment.
The area: The Vendée has a microclimate which means that the area enjoys up to 2600 hours of sunshine a year. This is almost as many as the south of France and almost twice as many as London! Well-established as a tourist area you will find activities to suit all of the family. From a castle in Talmont-St-Hilaire and a tower in Moricq to a zoo in Les Sables d'Olonne there really is something for everyone. All towns have local produce markets, wonderful opportunities to try local specialities and soak up some of the friendly Vendéen atmosphere. The summer also sees the area hosting many music festivals and watersport competitions. Every four years the world famous Vendée globe race sets off from Les Sables d'Olonne and the Vendée is regularly featured in the itinerary for the Tour de France cycle race.
Situated in the southern reaches of the Loire valley, the Vendée has four main wine-producing areas : Brem-sur-Mer, Vix, Pissotte and Mareuil-sur-Lay. Visits and tastings can be arranged and most restaurants stock local wines for you to enjoy.
For history buffs l'Historial de la Vendée is the place to visit. Telling the long history of the area from pre-historic times to the present day there is also a simulated helicopter ride over the Vendée, exciting for visitors of all ages.
Slightly further afield are the leisure parks of Futuroscope and Puy de Fou both 'must-sees' for the family. For bargain-hunters, Cholet has a designer outlet - Marques Avenue with many popular labels at reduced prices.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Have had a great time at La Bergerie. The gite has everything you need and a lovely terrace on which to breakfast. Angles is worth the walk of an evening - lovely restaurant La Cambuse - friendly and good food. Weather was perfect too! Would highly recommend.
