Our properties are in departments 79 (Deux Sevres) and 85 (Vendee).

Moncoutant is a pretty little town, and well served by a variety of shops, bars, restaurants, banks, post office, schools, medical facilities, an impressive array of sports clubs and facilities, SuperU supermarket, etc.

If you need something larger than a standard SuperU, the nearest medium sized market towns with a wider variety of supermarkets, weekly markets, rail links, 6th form colleges, and other amenities are Bressuire 15mins, Medieval Parthenay 30mins, Fontenay le Comte 45mins. The nearest city is Niort 50mins, with its historical centre, lovely shopping areas and even wider range of amenities expected of a small city: Classed amongst the top 20 best places to live in france, in an annual survey carried out by newspaper Les Echos.

Moncoutant is in the geographical region known as the bocage, characterised by small fields, ancient protected hedges, streams, ponds, pollarded oaks and rolling green hills. This environment is an excellent habitat for birds, insects and small mammals, nature lovers will find plenty to enjoy.

For travel links, Moncoutant is 3 drive hours from St Malo, 6 hours from Calais. There are 3 airports within 1.5 hours drive (not to be sniffed at, as the low cost airlines change their routes regularly, so you don’t want to be relying on only one airport). Poitiers has a TGV station with links to Paris and the south. During the summer a tourist train travels from the coast through Bressuire to the Loire chateaux.

The closest coastal resorts are around 1 hour 20, good for day-trips to the beach, La Rochelle and the Isle de Ré have the same driving time. The Vendee enjoys the same sunshine hours as the mediterranean coast, without the stifling heat. The Deux-Sevres benefits from the gulf stream effect, and has a relatively dry warm climate. 

Moncoutant has a cycle/walking path (La Voie Verte) linking the village with Bressuire and Parthenay, using old rail lines. There are forests open to the public in nearby L’Absie and Chantemerle. Europes largest fishing complex Pescalis is 1km away, with fresh water aquariums, restaurants, walking and (of course) fishing. Chantemerle has a carting track and forest treetop adventure park.  There is an open air pool in La Chataigneraie 20 mins.

Twice voted the worlds best theme park (and I agree) : Puy du Fou is 40 mins away. Futuroscope is 1h15. Venise Verte 50mins. Loire wine houses offering tours in Saumur 1.5 hours, or in the Layon valley 1h. Vouvant 35mins with its medieval stone buildings and Mervent 40mins with its valley setting, beach and water based activities.  Don’t get me started on Franco-Roman churches (as I don’t know about them, but there are lots), Mouton-village (yes sheep village) in Vasles, golf courses at Mazieres 450mins, Vasles 50mins and opening soon in Bressuire 15mins. Maulevrier 45mins has a japanese themed garden, the chateau restaurant has a recently renovated ‘potager' garden to rival Versailles (they share gardeners), and the restaurant itself (chateau Colbert) is stunning.

Take a look at our own website as I have only put a very small selection of properties onto French Property Links so far - bocagimmo dot com where you will find over 1200 properties for sale - if you have any queries for any of those please just contact me.

When looking on the bocagimmo web site it is best to look at the French version at the moment as on the English version there are only around 400 properties translated, thus lots more choice on the French side.
