St Michel en l’Herm and the Local Area
The village is surrounded by flat countryside - with fields of sunflowers and wheat - and areas set aside for Wetlands, with lots of interesting migratory birds (including storks, cranes, egrets, lapwings, ibis and buzzards). During the summer months, the village holds lots of fetes and festivals - with car boot sales, musical evenings and guided walks around the Abbaye Royale.
In less than a 20 minute drive you can be sunning yourself on the long sandy beach at La Faute sur Mer, or a little further along the coast is La Tranche sur Mer - both are located in seaside towns, with bars, restaurants, entertainment in the evenings and weekly markets.
Further afield, La Rochelle is about a 40 minute drive - a great day out exploring the arched shopping streets, full of individual boutiques, or just people watching in the many harbour-side restaurants where you can eat freshly caught seafood or local delicacies. In the evenings, the harbour is pedestrianised and street entertainers amuse the passers-by.There are often firework displays and festivals here.
The Puy du Fou Theme Park is a Must-See - you will be transported back in time to the age of the Gladiators, Vikings, Musketeers, Medieval Knights and will see the best Bird of Prey show in the world with the Bal des Oiseaux Fantomes! (80 minutes away)
For a quieter day out - The Marais Poitevin has miles of canals to walk along, or to hire a boat and float by ruined abbeys and pretty villages. (an hour away)
NEW FOR 2016: O’GLISS WATER PARK
At the end of June 2016 a new Water Park opened in Moutiers Les Mauxfaits - only a 30 minute drive from the Le Petit Michelais Holiday Home. There is lots of fun for the whole family - with giant water slides, wave machines, a beach, river courses and much more! Click here for more details….

Mark & Sienna, Weighbridge. August 2016.
After a week spent near St Hilaire de Reiz we’ve had a really relaxing and lovely week at Le Petit Michelais.
The village is delightful - we’ve enjoyed our daily morning walks to pick up freshly baked bread from the boulangerie - delicious!! We’ve enjoyed the beaches at La Faute sur Mer & La Tranche sur Mer.
The pool has been fantastic - the kids have spent hours in the water this week. Weather has been great & we’ve had many meals outside on the terrace.
Do visit the local market on a Thursday morning - lovely seafood.
We also had a really nice meal in the bistro part off the Rose Tremière in the village.
