Château de la Flocellière

A private castle offering 1000 years of history 8km from Puy du Fou

Situated in the heart of the Vendée’s high copse, at 8 km from The Puy du Fou spectacle, immediately next to the little market town, mention of the The Flocellière Castle appears in documents dating from the 11th century. A magnificent medieval keep and a wing from the former orangery dominate a park planted with hundred years-old trees. The Vicomte Patrice Vignial, a lover of history, is thrilled to welcome his guests to dine with him and to offer advice on excursions in the area.
