Area description

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.

Self-catering accommodation in the Gatine countryside, yet only 1.5 miles from the town.

Despite its peaceful, rural ambience, Secondigny has all the amenities you may require without having to stray too far. A supermarket, butcher, bakers, newsagent, vet, chemist, and hairdresser can all be found in Secondigny, and of course 2 or 3 bars and restaurants.

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. In fact, with tourist attractions within an hour in any direction, La Germondiere provides an ideal self-catering base for exploring this wonderful part of France.
