Chantonnay - an attractive, friendly town

Chantonnay is a peaceful and attractive town, with some graceful architecture to enjoy. It has a spacious design and a warm, friendly atmosphere, and is keen to encourage tourism throughout the year as well as offering a welcome to those who wish to live there full time. The practicalities of life are well catered for in Chantonnay, as there is a well stocked supermarket as well as an excellent range of other shops and restaurants.

A rambler's paradise

The typical Vendeen countryside around the town of Chantonnay is perfect for walking. The 'bocage', the gently undulating hills, make walking a pleasure rather than an athletic challenge. There is, however, a challenge available to those of an energetic nature, as in May Chantonnay hosts the 'Four Days Walk'. This is as much a social event as a walking event, but if you are going to walk for the full four days be prepared for a blister or two! The event attracts walkers from afar as well as being enjoyed by the locals. Walking is the perfect way in which to discover both the pretty countryside and the lovely buildings of the town and its environs, with their red tiled roofs so typical of the region.

Leisure and Pleasures in Chantonnay

Anyone who loves the gentler pleasures of life will enjoy Chantonnay. There are beautiful parks and lakes to explore, with activities such as sailing, swimming, windsurfing and canoeing on offer at the Lac de Rocherau.The country park of Moulin Neuf is ideal for family outings, and has a safe swimming lake with beaches for sunbathing and picnicking. It is important to remember, however, that Chantonnay is less than one hour away from all the fun of the Vendée coast, where glorious sandy beaches with water sports, bars and other tourist attractions can be found.
