Vallans 100 % nature

On the edge of the Marais Poitevin, the town is nestled in the Courance valley. The lordship was mentioned for the first time in 1093. During the siege of Frontenay, in 1242, Louis IX slept in the priory of the commune. An altar is dedicated to him in the church where he would have come to pray and the main street of the town is named "rue St-Louis" in memory of this royal visit. In 2018, the municipality was labeled “Engaged organic territory” for having reached 29,45% of its useful agricultural area in organic farming. Located on the GR 36, the town offers three hiking trails and is preparing a village discovery tour. Likewise, Departmental 1, which crosses it, is very popular with regional cycle tourists.

To see: Notre-Dame church, restored castle of the old lordship, Allerit castle, wash houses, Teurtous park, Jeannot orchard and squash hall.
