|Le Chene Vert||Self Catering||Friday||4||10||2|
Le Chene Vert is a well appointed and very comfortable 4 bedroomed, 100 year old farmhouse in the traditional longere style of the region.
Its secluded location, at the heart of the Haute Bocage, in the Vendee region of the Loire Atlantique, offers you the kind of French holiday of your dreams – peaceful, restful, nestled in truly beautiful countryside, with nature right on your doorstep.
On the other hand, it's only an hour away from some of the best beaches in Western France, like the bustling Sables d'Olonne, the cosmopolitan La Rochelle, and close to some of France's most popular attractions including the Puy du Fou and Futurescope. If you have young children you'll get the best of both worlds.
On top of all that, our location means it's the perfect base for touring the host of nearby chateaux, vineyards and all the other lovely things that France does so well.
The farmhouse has plenty of space to accommodate up to 3 families with children. Extra large bedrooms, comfortable beds, fabulous pool and decking area with sunloungers and large trampoline plus safety net.
It currently sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms. Three bedrooms are upstairs and downstairs is an additional bedroom with two single beds - ideal for teenagers.
Large, well equipped country farmhouse kitchen with solid wood units, walnut worktops, a separate kitchen island with breakfast bar and a range cooker with induction hob.
A large separate dining room seats up to 8. Both have wide French windows and doors out on to the garden.
Television room with English satellite tv and video player.
Comfy sofas and chairs.
Separate downstairs bedroom.
All of the rooms are spacious with lots of storage. Upstairs there are 2 king size bedrooms, plus another double room with 2 single beds for children or that can be zipped together to make an extra large king size, thus giving you lots of sleeping options for different size parties.
Downstairs there is a large, light new bedroom with a single bed and pull out underbed. Ideal for kids, teenagers or for an additional family. There will also be a tv and XBox in this room.
The bed linen is cool, comfortable cotton and the king size beds have a luxury memory foam mattress topper for your best holiday night's sleep ever.

Hello.... we love our Vendee holiday home and hope you have as good a time there as we always do.
|Year property purchased||2002|
|Why this location?||It's so easy to get to, yet superbly placed for everything that France does so well - wine, cities, beautiful lakes and forests, chateau and beaches.|
|Unique benefits of property||All of the rooms are spacious and bright and airy and the house is set in its own, private, walled garden. The pool is amazing with a sun drenched decking area and the kids will love the trampoline.|
Rated one of the best theme parks in the world and only 20 minutes away. Also has a night time cinescinie. Visit the website and prepare to be amazed at what is there :)
So many to choose from all about 60kms away - our favorite is Query Pigeon near Sables D'Olonne as it is best for kids with rock pools, forests, mini train and play area.
Endless cycle tracks, along with a zoo, watersports area on the lake and an old fashioned kids theme park called Pierre Brun.
Take a boat trip to any of the wonderful, beautiful and tiny islands - take your pick from Ile d'Aix or Ile d'Yeu or drive across endless bridges to Ile de Re or Ile d'Oleron. Ile de Noirmoutier can be reached by driving across a causeway - but only when the tide is out - stop off to fish in the rock pools.
Drive just an hour north and visit the beautiful cities of Angers and Saumur and their amazing chateaux. Drive back via the troglodyte caves near Saumur.
If time is short but the kids still want a swim head to this huge inland lake, complete with beach, pedaloes and a water slide. A great day out.
Absolutely wonderful location - you will need a car!
Authentic French farm house with everything you need for a fab holiday.
Great comms with the owner
We had an amazing holiday
It was a pleasure having you as guests. Am delighted you had a great holiday and thank you for your comments.
What an amazing weekend! The sun shone and the place is beautiful. It wasn't hot enough to enjoy the swimming pool but we had some long evenings outdoors in the garden.
The bedrooms are really big, even the twin room which is called the children's room but was still roomy. Really loved the house and the beds are extremely comfortable. No wifi but not a problem as the kids still had their ipads and mobile reception good, but in fact they were outdoors much more than at home - probably to do with all the gorgeous donkeys next to the house, which loved our apples and carrots.
Definitely recommend it.
