The department Deux-Sèvres marked in red, in which Villa de Lussais is located, owes its name to the rivers Sèvre Niortaise and Sèvre
The area has a lot to offer for holidaymakers. The department is hilly and is known for example for the salt and grain trade. Much silver was mined and religious wars were fought in ancient times. All this has left its traces in the area; beautiful castles and fortresses remind us of these times.
The department Deux-Sèvres offers you an authentic French atmosphere. The landscape and views change after every hill. The villages and towns are not very touristy and therefore easily accessible. However, they are very cozy and you will find good restaurants where you can eat for little money and enjoy local dishes, regional products and not to forget local wines.
