Vannnes : Right in the middle of Sologne, less than 2hrs from Paris

Vannes is a small village, 2hrs from the south of Paris, with a population of 600.  It is situated right in the middle of the preserved Sologne Region – renowned for hunting (boar, deer, duck, pheasant, etc.)  Sorcery and mystery are part of its rural history.

Vannes has kept its authentic character: traditional red brick, half-timbered houses and cottages in the middle of the forest. Vannes is also 80% equipped with broadband network.

A large choice of B&B’s for our guests
 
We also have a good choice of B&B`s (“chambres d`hotes”) usually in local ex-farmhouses and also some independent houses (“gites ruraux”) that can be rented.  In the village itself, we have the former presbytery that has been separated into 2 independent houses, one bigger then the other. 
Most of the B&B`s or independent houses are in the tourist guide www.gites-de-france-loiret.com.
The `new locals` are very motivated to help revive those parts of Vannes that need to be so.  We all are very conscious of how lucky we are to live in such a preserved environment.
