Gite de l'Etang (fishing) is located in Secondigny, Deux Sevres

In Western France, in the beautiful countryside of Deux-Sevres, Secondigny is a pretty town with a peaceful way of life. It lies between the Secondigny Forest, an area of beautiful woodland trails and nature reserves, and the Gatines, known for their rolling meadows and apple orchards.

Just 14 km from the beautiful medieval town of Parthenay, capital of the Gatine. A historical and picturesque town inside granite fortifications. The towns of Bressuire and Thouars, both famed for historical chateaux, are nearby. Various major tourist attractions within 1 hour, e.g. Futuroscope, Puy du Fou, La Rochelle, Marais Poitevin, Pescalis.

Poitou-Charentes is a popular holiday destination primarily because of the climate. The region is south of the Loire Valley and some parts are believed to have the most sunshine hours a year in France, outside of the Med!

With so many tourist attractions nearby, you will need to make time to just chill out and enjoy the peace and fishing.
