Niort is a very pleasant town approximately 26 miles / 45 minutes from Villemorin.  Set your satnav for 'Quai de la Prefecture' which will take you to pay car park by the river, opposite the splendid Donjon (which is open for visits) and the lovely market.

If you follow the main town street (market to your right) up the hillside, there is a nice park - les jardins de la breche - with some bars and restaurants.  Niort can be combined with a trip to the Marais Poitevin - you can for example take a trip on a boat from Embarcadère Prada, Place de a Coutume in Coulon, which is only 6.5 miles from the Quai de la Prefecture car park.
