Domaine de L’Auneau

An unusual and timeless estate

Situated at a viewpoint overlooking the romantic Petit Lay valley at the heart of the Vendée low bocage, the villa-castel de L’Auneau is an unusual example of a château dating from the very end of the 19th century (1899). The grounds open onto exceptional panoramic views of an extremely well-preserved agricultural landscape, where nature is manifestly still king. The layout of the residence, both interior and exterior, makes this an unusual and timeless estate, a worthy place to linger a while.
