Must see · Garden · Historic Site
Logis de la Chabotterie, or Lodge of Chabotterie, was the last site of Vendee’s “great war.” General Charette was taken to the lodge after his capture, but it must have been a pleasant prison sentence and once you’ve see it’s enchanting environs you’ll understand why. Manicured 18th century gardens abut a house that is dedicated to Vendee’s war history and the stories of historical personages who’ve passed through the lodge. It is often the site of spectacles and concerts because of its import in the region’s history; but, spectacle or no, you’ll delight in the romantic heroism of this little maison tucked away in the French countryside.

  • If one needs to know a piece of French history of times gone by visiting La Charbotterie would give a good insight on the turmoil France was in circa 1790’s. The displays on offer are excellently portrayed and it is possible to take on board a translation device to help understand. The Vendee war as it was known involved initially a group of high born gentlemen trying to usurp Napoleon and unfortunately they failed and by failing an awful lot of people lost their lives. If interested it is a place to go to and is open all year except the usual Bank holidays Christmas and New Year days
  • Great historic house and museum catering well for the English visitor with comprehensive audio guides. Beautiful grounds and very interesting house and history relating to the revolution.
