A region of water and rivers, the Pays de Chantonnay is also known for its river, “le Lay”, as well as its 3 lakes. The total water area covers 270 hectares, and offers many leisure activities.
The river le Lay and its source
The “ le Lay” river and the source of la Solissonnière can be found at just 200 metres from the gîtes, just below the hamlet. Depending on the direction of the wind, the pleasant sound of cascading water may be heard either from the garden or the pool area.
Le Lay, the most important coastal river in the Vendée
The “le Lay” meanders its way through the rolling hills of the bocage and then flows into the plains of the Southern Vendée, before reaching the ocean at Aiguillon sur Mer. It is the longest river in the Vendée, and is famous for its many fishing spots, and changing landscapes.
