Vasles - a village of sheep

The little village of Vasles, in the Deux-Sèvres department of Poitou-Charentes, has an unusual claim to fame. Its population is said to include 1,600 humans, and 18,000 sheep! The sheep haven't taken over the village though, despite the impressive numbers. Vasles has a popular tourist attraction in its Sheep Park where some 21 different breeds of sheep can be seen.

Heritage on offer

Aside from the Sheep Park, Vasles has plenty to recommend it. The village has a rich heritage, both built and natural. In addition to the Sheep Park and beautiful countryside, there are two chateaux, a manor house and a church that's packed with interesting features and artefacts.

Local amenities available
