Year property purchased 2011
Why this location? We love the fact that it is in a village and yet within reach of some great countryside, a variety of things to do (especially Puy du Fou) and close enough to the coast for a lovely day out.
Unique benefits of property The house is really spacious and well- equipped - our home from home. It is totally private with a heated pool.

The Owner Recommends

TOUR DE FRANCE ROUTE 2018

This year's Tour is in the area for 3 days - 7-9 July including through the village on 8th July. Should be a fabulous atmosphere all around!

Puy du Fou

Just 30 minutes away is this great "theme park" - no rides but amazing shows by day and by night. A must see.

Parc Aventure Chantemerle 79

Zip lines, mini golf and laser tag - all in one location just 10 minutes away.

Vouvant

The Vendee's representative village in the category of prettiest village in France is just 15 minutes away. You can wander around this artists' commune and galleries, take in the Norman church, climb to the top of the tower and enjoy lunch or afternoon cakes in the Cafe Cour du Miracle.

Lion d'Or restaurant

Our favourite restaurant in the area is in Saint Hilare de Voust just 15 minutes away. They do great steaks, pizzas plus a range of traditional French dishes.

A wonderful house with a beautiful garden and a fabulous pool! Stayed as a family with 2 teenagers - everything we needed in the house - great wifi for the teenagers and we even managed to get them to play Monopoly! The pool is fantastic, with it's own heating if needed. We enjoyed walking into the village to the Boulangerie and mini market, both run by very friendly locals. The location is great, only half an hour from Puy du Fou and a few good restarurants. We'd been in the area before so had a couple of places on our list to visit.

Stephanie was so easy to liaise with and replied to messages very promptly.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here!
