The pool has a heat cover which retains the heat when not in use.
The pool is protected by a by patio doors which has a high catch which must be fastened when the last responsible adult leaves.
The outdoor swimming pool is 10 x 6m with roman steps, it varies in height from 2.4m at the deep end to .9m at the shallow end. It is constructed in concrete with a fibreglass liner.
The pool is not heated other than by the sun, but is generally at a suitable temperature from May till October.
The pool has a large terrace with tables and chairs and is protected by a hedge and security fence with self-closing gates.
The sterilization of the pool is by saline electrolysis. To put it simply the pool has salt in it and the electrolysis machine breaks the salt down into its base components, chlorine and sodium. This is exactly how the sea is kept clean, it is very natural and the chlorine that is produced is of a different structure making it almost undetectable to smell and kind on the eyes. There is an additional bonus in that the salt in the pool gives more bouyancy that fresh water and that has allowed many of our younger visitor to learn to swim more quickly.
We are proud of our gardens at La Grange not only because of the way they are landscaped and the vast amount of colour in the flower beds, but because of the amount of enjoyment that they bring to our visitors.
The gardens were designed so that where ever you are on the site there is always something interesting to view, and with the gardens blending into the natural landscape it has the feel of space and being together with nature.
The gardens are basically in 2 parts, the landscaped garden and the sports field though within the former there is a boules court.
One of the reasons that our Gites stand out from most others in the south of the Vendee is the amount and the quality of our on site Activities
What ever the weather there is something to keep you amused or entertained regardless of your age.
Children especially are catered for under the old saying if the children are content so are the parents.

We are part of a group which rented all of the gites at La Grange for a special occasion.
The group consisted of people of all ages and we can honestly say that the property was suitable for all of us and the facilities were great.
Trevor was a great host and very helpful with information when needed.
We all had a great holiday and highly recommend La Grange.
Thanks Trevor, great job!

As part of a large group we let all of the gites at La Grange. It was perfect for us, some of the group went fishing at the lake whilst the rest of the group had a great time using the facilities at La Grange. All gites were clean upon arrival and were well kitted out and spacious. The grounds of La Grange were superb and very extensive. Trevor was a great host and there with information if needed.
The fishing was perfect, very large carp and plenty of them, it far exceeded our expectations and we can definitely recommend fishing here.
The whole group had a wonderful holiday with lovely memories and we plan to return next year.

Great holiday. We travelled with friends who stayed in the Sapin (n2 bedrooms) and Frene ( 3 bedroom) gites. All had a great holiday and we have already booked again for next year.
Definitely recommended.

Chene is a very spacious holiday gite which we rented for a family holiday. All very clean and tidy when we arrived.
The facilities on site were great for all of the children, we have never stayed anywhere with so much to do the for the children, they had a great time and the adults all relaxed with a glass of wine.
South Vendee offers a lot with days out, the beaches were stunning and easily accessible, kids loved the surf lessons.
We had a wonderful holiday, thank you. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property.
