A gourmet wine tour by bike or electric car in Mareuil

Tourists can explore the vineyards in the French wine region in the  Lay valley on their own, thanks to a 20-kilometre wine tour circuit. This route can be attempted by bicycle or in an electric car, both of which are equipped with GPS. Following the initiative of this wine tour, the route sets out from the Domaine Mourat, leading us to the foot of a windmill. In this idyllic setting, families or groups of friends can take a break and savour a delicious picnic served in jars accompanied by some Mourat AOC wines, part of the Fiefs Vendéens appellation.

The wine route of the South Vendée on a free ride

Sud Vendée Tourisme has put together a lovely 60 km wine tour for you to take by car... between waterways, wine estates and artists' studios.
Classified as one of the "most beautiful villages in France", Vouvant is the starting and finishing point of this loop.
The next stop is Pissotte, where you will meet the last winegrower of the village: Mathieu Coirier. Then a short stop in the Petite Cité de Caractère of Foussais-Payré.
We take the car again, towards the Marais poitevin and more precisely Vix, to visit the Mercier vineyards.
A little advice beforehand: think of the little stopover in Maillezais to enjoy a flat ride in the canals of the Green Venice and visit its abbey!
