While the soul of the Vendée is believed to rest at the Memorial of Les-Lucs-sur-Boulogne, its spirit is said to exude from La Chabotterie. It is the most important site of memory in the département, since it is the place where Charette was taken after his capture, which event marked the end of the Vendée War of 1793.
Philippe de Villier, quoted in the preface to the English guide to the Logis de la Chabotterie.
We started our second day in the Vendée at the Logis de la Chabotterie, a beautifully restored manor house at Saint-Sulpice-le-Verdon, about 40 minutes drive south from Nantes. It was in the nearby woods of La Chabotterie on 23rd March 1796 that Charette, the last of the Vendéan leaders, was finally arrested. He was then held briefly in the house before being taken to Nantes for execution.
