About this property

Large, light and airy detached country farmhouse . This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Le Chene Vert is a well appointed and very comfortable 3 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 hustling Sables d'Olonne, the cosmopolitan La Rochelle, and close to some of France's most popular attractions including the Puy de Fou and Futuroscope. 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 very well.
 
The farmhouse has plenty of space to accommodate 1 or 2 families with children. Extra large bedrooms, comfortable beds, fabulous pool and decking area with sunloungers and large trampoline plus safety net.

The Owner Recommends

Le Puy du Fou

Superb theme park only 20 minutes away.

Beaches of the Vendee

So many to choose from all about 60kms away - our favourite is Query Pigeon near Sables D'Olonne as it is best for kids with rock pools, forests, min train and play area.

Forest of Mervent and Vouvant

Endless cycle tracks, along with a zoo, watersports area on the lake and an old fashioned kids theme park called Pierre Brun.

Islands off the Coast

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 IleD'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.

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.
