How to find us

La Grande Vigne, 11 Rue du Paradis, 79120 Messé, France. Telephone: 0800 073 8385 (free from UK landline) Telephone: 0033 (0)549 29 39 93

For those of you who rely on the tried and trusted method of reading a good old-fashioned road atlas, we are about 8kms from the N10 - exit at Chaunay Nord (north junction) road number D35, take the road signposted Lezay, carry on this road through Vanzay continuing along the D35/D55 (don't be confused when the road number changes to D55) for another 1.35kms. You will see a triangular crossroads sign on your right, take the next right turn (at the crossroads), which is the C11 signposted Asnières (also signposted Langevinière, Messé and Chez Charruyer).  Follow this road for 1km until you come to a large stone cross (painted terracotta colour) on your left.  Take the left hand turn here (signposted Grand’ Vigne and La Villate).

We are on the right 0.35kms along the road. You will pass several large woodpiles on your left, a little further on you will see a red fire hydrant and 3 green recycling bins on your right. Immediately after the bins, you will see our camping field on your right and enter here if you are camping or caravanning.

 For Gite customers continue on the road past the raised decking area of our pool along with a blue French ‘village’ sign saying Grand Vigne; the next turn on the right is our parking area.

Tip for Sat.Nav fans:  Don't put 79120 Messé into your system because you will end up by the church in the centre of the village about 4kms away.
