VALLANS 100 % nature
At the edge of the Marais Poitevin, the commune is nestled in the Vallée de la Courance. The seigneury was first mentioned in 1093. During the siege of Frontenay, in 1242, Louis IX slept in the priory of the commune. An altar is consecrated to him in the church where he would have come to pray and the main street of the village is called "rue St-Louis" in memory of this royal visit. In 2018, the municipality is labeled "Committed organic territory" for having reached 29.45% of its useful agricultural area in organic. Located on the GR 36, the municipality offers three hiking tours and prepares a discovery tour of the village. Similarly, the Department 1, which crosses it, is very popular with regional cyclo-tourists.
To see: church of Notre-Dame, restored castle of the former seigneury, castle of Allerit, wash houses, park in Teurtous, orchard of Jeannot and room of squash.
