About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Annette Khan

The owners, Monique and Daniel, live near to Paris and bought Gite de la Moutonnerie as a holiday home for themselves and their family. They have owned the house for many years, and now that their family has grown up, they have decided to rent out the gite so that others can enjoy it. Annette, who lives nearby, manages the reservations for Monique and Daniel.

Year property purchased 1990
Why this location? They chose this area as it is within 20 minutes drive of the sandy beaches in the Southern Vendée. There are so many different beaches to choose from - great for surfing, body boarding, building sandcastles or just relaxing. They are also good for dog walks and bird watching!
Unique benefits of property The gite is set in a small village on the edge of a natural wetland plain - full of migratory birds in winter, so a haven for birdwatchers. It is only a 20 minute drive to the beaches and less than an hour to La Rochelle or Les Sables d'Olonne. The O'Gliss Water Park is only 15 minutes away and the amazing Puy du Fou Park is around an hour away. There is so much to do - you'll need at least a 2 week holiday!

The Owner Recommends

The O'Gliss Water Park

This family friendly water park is only a 15 minute drive from Gite de la Moutonnerie. There are water slides, a beach with waves, a children's play pool with pirate ship and river tubes to float along. Plenty to do for all of the family and a whole day out! Book in advance!

The Markets of the Southern Vendée

Every week there are lots of colourful markets within a short drive of Curzon and Gite de la Moutonnerie. On Sundays the streets fill up in La Faute sur Mer with stalls selling local fruit & veg, seafood caught that day, lovely cheeses and meats, plus you can taste some of the local wines from the Fief Vendée. On Saturdays head to La Tranche or L'Aiguillon. and at La Rochelle or La Roche sur Yon there is a large covered market hall that is open most days of the week.

The Puy du Fou

This is an amazing award winning Theme Park set in the North of the Vendée. There are no rides - just fantastic shows - with a full sized coliseum and gladiators, marauding Vikings, knights on horseback, duelling musketeers and Napoleonic sailors. And don't miss the 'Bal des Oiseaux Fantomes' - the best bird of prey show that you will ever see. In the evenings there is a spectacular finale show set around the ruined chateau and lake, with a cast of over 1100 actors and fireworks to end with. Not to be missed!
