Village of nearly one thousand inhabitants, Châteauneuf takes place in the department of Vendée, in Pays de la Loire region. Close to the Atlantic coast, it is ten kilometers from Challans, and about forty kilometers from La Roche-sur-Yon.
Ideally located from a tourist point of view, the town also benefits from varied landscapes with the marshes in the north and the bocage in the south.
According to historians, Châteauneuf owes its name to an ancient castle built there in the Middle Ages. The village was mainly known in history for having been an important battle scene during the late 18th century Vendean insurrections.
Today, it is more oriented towards tourism than in the Pays de la Loire region. It has an interesting heritage, as well as natural areas perfect for hiking or other outdoor activities.
