l'Oliverie - 79200 - SAURAIS - Naturism in Gâtine Vendéenne

Parthenay, a listed French “ Pays d`Art et d`Histoire “ ( “ Country of Art and History “ ) due to the richness of its heritage, has preserved the atmosphere of a medieval town. The castle, with its massive fortifications seemingly growing out of the granite bedrock contrast with the delicate sculptures of Romanesque churches, cut out of the limestone. The pilgrim’s way of Saint-Jacques de Compostel traverses the town. From the XII century onwards there were many pilgrims passing through and the memory of their passing is still prevalent in Parthenay`s streets today. la porte St Jacques à Parthenay

The 7-9 ( Deux-Sèvres French department 79 ) saw the building of Pyramids in Neolithic times, the invention of graffiti in the Middle Ages, and was home to burgeoning powerful townships well before the Renaissance. You will certainly be surprised! Finally, the tourist information office in La Ferrière en Parthenay is only 5 minutes from L`Oliverie, and there you will find a warm welcome and lots of help with choosing what to see in the area. From June to September their staff can propose a variety of exclusive guided tours and day trips ( for example the “ Logis de Saurais “, the vineyards and cellars of Haut Poitou in Doux, the organ-builder in Thénezay, etc…)
