The Pays de Fontenay-le-Comte features a host of architectural jewels: Fontenay-le-Comte, Vouvant and Foussais-Payré. In Fontenay-le-Comte, explore the Renaissance elegance of the capital of Bas-Poitou, awarded the prestigious title of "Ville et Pays d’Art et d’Histoire" (city of art and history) and making it one of the "most stunning destinations in France". A little further afield is Vouvant, a charming medieval town which, according to legend, was built by the fairy Melusine. It is listed as "one of France's most picturesque villages" and is also on the list of "Petites Cités de Caractère" (villages of character). This second title is also held by the typical village of Foussais-Payré, where the Roman Catholic church boasts a main gate that is unique in western France. The area also has numerous walking, horse-riding and mountain-biking routes stretching from the Mervent-Vouvant forest to the outskirts of the Marais Poitevin.
