Welcome to La Grande Vigne

Travel information for Land, air AND sea 


La Grand Vigne is approximately 8 kms from the main N10.

Directions from N10 heading south from Poitiers: Take the exit for Chaunay Nord (north junction), road number D35. Then take the road signposted Lezay. Carry on through Vanzay, continuing along the D35/D55 for another 1.35 kms (don’t be confused when the road number changes to D55). You’ll see a triangular crossroads sign on the right. Turn right at the crossroads onto the C11 signposted Asnières (and Langevinière, Messé and Chez Charruyer). Follow the road for 1 km until you come to a large stone terracotta-coloured cross on the left.  Turn left – signposted Grand’ Vigne and La Villate. We are on the right 0.35 kms along. Pass the woodpiles on your left, a little further on there’s a red fire hydrant and recycling bins on the right. Immediately after the bins, is the entrance to our camping field on the right. Use this entrance for camping or caravanning.

For Gite guests – continue past the camping entrance on the same road, until you see a blue French ‘village’ sign saying ‘Grand Vigne’. The next turning on the right is the Car Park

Tip for Sat. Nav fans:  Don’t put 79120 Messé into your system because this will take you into the centre of the village about 4 kms away.
