100% “Pleasure of the senses” experience

town of foussais payré

Morning departure for the Petite Cité de Caractère, Foussais-Payré. Rendezvous at the artisanal chocolate factory for a 1h30 Taste Workshop (book in advance, places are limited).

From the cocoa tree to the chocolate bar, we explain everything while you enjoy a few treats. Then make your own chocolates to take home. Your 5 senses – smell, taste, touch, sight and even hearing – are awakened…

On your way out, take a stroll around this pretty little Renaissance town. In addition to its architectural heritage, you can admire monumental sculptures in various parts of the village, created by artists with chainsaws to give new life to fallen trees.

Head for one of France’s most beautiful villages, 10 km away, Vouvant, an ancient medieval fortress nestled in the meander of its river. Narrow streets, ramparts and the Tour Mélusine, the last vestige of a fortified castle. To whet your appetite, climb the spiral staircase and admire the remarkable view from the top……

Are you hungry? Various food outlets, including Maître Pannetier’s inn, will delight you at very reasonable prices.

Continue your day at the Tourist Office, where you’ll be given a map. Let yourself wander through the bucolic atmosphere of the narrow streets, the many small boutiques, painters’ studios and art galleries. A dozen artists and craftsmen open their doors to you… Because Vouvant is not only a medieval town, it has also been “The Village of Painters” for several years now.

Back via Fontenay le Comte, with a stop at the Parcabout to let off some steam. Climb and jump safely and freely in nets suspended between trees. Enjoy a unique panoramic view of the city.
