About the neighborhood
L'Oulerie is a small hamlet set in the beautiful Vendée countryside.

Luçon is only 10 minutes away and makes a nice day out with a visit to the 600 year old cathedral or a saunter around the Jardin Dumaine. Here you will find many shops, bars, restaurants and a weekly market.

The area is full of tourist attractions - such as the Indian Forest Adventure park, the car museum, the old port at La Rochelle or the many ruined castles and abbeys watching over the medieval towns.

The main attractions in the Vendee are the fantastic beaches - some for surfing, body boarding, rock pooling or just relaxing!

The surrounding countryside is great to explore and there are many guided walks around the area - stopping off in many of the picturesque little villages for a coffee or beer - many havin...
