Click “Directions” on the map provided for a customized route plan to get to Vernoux en Gâtine, then follow the directions below to get to the gîtes. Similarly, if you are using a satnav, use it to get to Vernoux en Gâtine. If you put in Le Fontenioux, it may take you on a very odd route.
Vernoux en Gâtine is on the D949, the main road between La Châtaigneraie and Parthenay.
The Vernoux en Gâtine Mairie (Town hall) is on that main road. Take the road opposite the Mairie (right if coming from L’Absie, left if coming from Secondigny). There are green bollards round each corner.
Follow that road for approximately 2 km (keeping left at the statue where the road forks at about 1 km).
You will come to a crossroads, turn right (road-sign for Le Fontenioux), then take the first right (approx. 0.5 km). The road then swings left and you are here.
NB: The rest of the commune Le Fontenioux is the second right from the crossroads, we don’t have separate addresses. That is where satnav will take you.
If you wish you can just park next to the Mairie and ring us so we can come and collect you.
