Moncoutant - a riverside town

There is always something about a town that lies on a river, and Moncoutant benefits from just such a pretty setting. On the Sèvre Nantaise River, the little market town is typically Charantaise and charming, in addition to being located in an ideal spot for accessing the many lovely attractions of the west of France. Moncoutant is also a self sufficient place, with a good variety of shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants.

Enjoy the Saturday morning market

Moncoutant has many old buildings and a traditional air, especially on Saturday mornings when the market fills the streets with its colour and cheer. Shopping, whether for daily necessities in a supermarket or a more leisurely wander around the boulangeries, patisseries and other small shops is easy as everything is within reach, and for those relaxing lunchtimes or evenings out you can also find a selection of bars and restaurants.

Riverside walks, swimming and fishing on offer

Along the riverside old water mills are a point of interest, and the riverside walks are never less than a pleasure to discover. Families with kids will be pleased to find the excellent swimming pool where you can take them to cool off and tire themselves out. Fishermen too are drawn to Moncoutant thanks to its excellent fishing centre, Pescalis, which is becoming quite an attraction for holidaymakers and increasing the tourist traffic to the town... good news for gite or B&B owners!

Why not try hot air ballooning?

Apart from fishing, swimming and walking, residents of Moncoutant have access to a wide variety of sports and activities. Cycling in the gently rolling countryside is always pleasurable, while golfers, horse riders and even hot air balloonists can find something to keep them happy nearby.

Explore Bressuire's ruined castle

There are plenty of places of interest within reach of Moncoutant. Bressuire is a delightful town, complete with a romantic ruined castle and many heritage buildings, while around Niort and the town of Coulon, lies the lovely Green Venice area of canals and waterways. Just over an hour to the west you come to the beaches and resorts of the Vendée and the fabulous port town of La Rochelle, which is also a very useful transport hub for getting to and from the area from the UK.
