Logis de la Chabotterie, Saint-Sulpice-le-Verdon

4.4
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.

  • We wanted to review this place after its very successful restoration. Even if the subject is not very objective and could be more balanced, it's a visit to to seize part of the Vendée wars.

  • A magical, beautiful place An old Vendean logis / castle, full of history about General Charette' s capture by the Republicans during the Vendean civil war just after the French Revolution. Everything is well detailled with audioguides in different languages about the different rooms of the castles and period artifacts and of course the Vendean war heroes. They are live events organised throughout the year, classical concerts, theatrical reconstructions, painting competions, esp. in the summer. The prices are affordable and there are also reductions for students, the unemployed, etc. Car park is free and ok-ish. I always look forward to going there and when we have visitors, we take them to the Chabotterie (easy access from the express road La Roche Sur Yon Nantes, well sign-posted.
  • It was our first 2 stars and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is warm and not too starchy (what we feared). The flavors are amazing without being confusing and impeccable presentation. Little original touch when our waitress has release a chocolate egg in the middle of the table who blew by releasing other chocolates at the Café. I recommend.

  • Very interesting. I went there with my small children of 10 years and 7 years and a half. A short questionnaire is proposed to them. They didn't expect that one thing is to go back to the beautiful days with their parents for the treasure hunt in the garden.
