Vallans 100 % nature
On the edge of the Marais Poitevin, the commune nestles in the Courance valley. The seigneury was first mentioned in 1093. During the siege of Frontenay in 1242, Louis IX slept in the local priory. An altar is dedicated to him in the church where he is said to have come to pray, and the main street in the village is named "rue St-Louis" in memory of this royal visit. In 2018, the commune was awarded the "Territoire bio engagé" (Committed Organic Territory) label for having achieved 29.45 % of its usable agricultural area in organic farming. Located on the GR 36, the commune offers three walking trails and is preparing a discovery trail of the village. Similarly, the Départementale 1, which runs through the village, is very popular with regional cyclo-tourists.
