Saint-Rémy-en-Plaine vaut le des Tours

The small rural town, labellised "Organic territory" in 2019, is located between Caâtine and Marais Poitevin. First named in 1080, it was under the election, the siege and the discipline of Fontenay-le-Comte. Its habitat is wound in the hollow of a grain plain, its streets are labyrinthine and sometimes lined with old dry stone walls. In 1804, Etienne Dupin, prefect of the Deux-Sèvres, wrote that there is a mill near the Goupilière in St-Rémy, that the communal land is only a vast quarry of limestone and that the trade consists of mules, horses, oxen and sheep. A passion of the horse that still persists on the outskirts of the village with the Relais Equestre Equinoxe.

To see: the two Towers (13th century), St-Rémy church, La Courneuve (15th century) and Maison de la Plaine (multipurpose room).
