Mouilleron en Pareds - an historic Vendéen village

The village of Mouilleron en Pareds sits proudly on top of a hill, owning unbeatable views over the land below. It's the birthplace of not one, but two war heroes, (Georges Clemenceau and Marshal Jean Joseph Marie Gabriel de Lattre de Tassigny), and is also notable for its excellent museum. Mouilleron en Pareds has another attribute though. It makes a wonderful place to have a holiday home. The sunshine and beauty of the countryside of the Vendée, the accessibility of the seaside and the ease of travel from the UK, all add to the appeal of this pretty village.

Shops and services available in the village

In addition to its heritage (which is celebrated in the museum, "Musée National Des Deux Victoir"), Mouilleron en Pareds offers a delightful slice of French country life. Although, for the main part, it's a very sleepy and peaceful village, Mouilleron has a very useful collection of small shops and services. Here you can find a boulangerie, a general store, a bar tabac, restaurants, pharmacy and a bank. There's a tourist information office too, which has a wealth of literature to help you discover events taking place nearby, and suggesting the best of the local attractions. It may also be handy to know that Mouilleron has a dentist and a doctor's - because you never know! The more sporty minded can make use of the tennis courts and boules courts in the summer season too.

Outdoor activities to enjoy in the area

If you're wanting to stay around Mouilleron, however, there's loads of choices. Fishing is possible at Lac Rochereau, and at Moncoutant you can try your hand at go-karting if you have a yen for speed. For those who like to take their pleasures at a slower pace, the nearby Forest of Mervent offers many beautiful walking trails. Local riding stables are also on hand to allow you the option of exploring the forest from the back of a horse. The area also boasts several golf courses. Finally, the Theme Park of Puy de Fou is just half an hour from Mouilleron, and in season hosts spectacular shows.

Visit the Vendée's beaches, vibrant La Rochelle and the beautiful Ile de Ré

Whether it's your first time in the Vendée or you know the department well, you'll find a wealth of things to do. The nearest beaches are found at just an hour's drive away, so there are lots of opportunities to enjoy seaside days out with the family. La Rochelle is an exciting and vibrant port town, while Ile de Ré is a lovely and unique place to visit.

How to get there

The airports of Nantes, La Rochelle and Poitiers all have direct flights to and from the UK. TGV trains also run to these cities, as well as to the smaller town of La Roche sur Yon, which is even closer. The ferry ports of St Malo and Caen are the nearest, at around a four-hour drive from Mouilleron. Drivers will find the village from the D949B, on the D8/D89.

Property prices and availability in and around Mouilleron en Pareds
