Fishing folks will love to visit the village today – there will be a sale of fishing goods and you can
get information on fishing in the village and on the Vendee. There is also something for the
garden and plant lovers too; you can gather tips for your own sensory and herb gardens and
advice on growing vegetables and herbs for the table. You can visit the herb and sensory garden
which is situated on the lower ramparts adjacent to the river and you can also catch a fish or two in
the river. For full details pick up a leaflet from the cafe or see the poster displayed in the window.
