About this property

Beautifully Peaceful and Tranquil. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

La Chevriere is a traditional French farmhouse on an acre of land with an orchard and swimming pool. This self-contained relaxed retreat is incredibly quiet (with no passing traffic except for the occasional tractor!) and the perfect spot for a tranquil, away-from-it-all holiday or an active break.

La Chevriere comprises a family kitchen and living room (both with wood-burning stoves) 3 bedrooms and a bathroom with bath/shower. There is a patio at the front of the house, with dining table and chairs and a brick barbecue, and a swimming pool with loungers to the side.

This traditional French farmhouse is secluded in the heart of the Vendee countryside, but with easy access of the coast, picturesque villages, rolling countryside and bustling traditional French towns. La Chevriere is nestled in a quiet hamlet in the heart of the Vendee, about an hour from La Rochelle, Nantes, Niort and Poitiers, with airports and stations offering lots of budget flights and high speed train connections. Despite its proximity to civilisation, the environment is very quiet and calm, and, without any light pollution, the night sky is often bright with stars and planets in easy view.

The white sandy beaches of the Vendee coast - we love La Tranche sur Mer, La Faute sur Mer, Bourgenay and Les Sable d'Olonne (a favourite Parisian haunt) - are around an hour away. Also Vouvant ('un des plus beaux villages de France'), Mervent Forest Park and lakes (for sailing, canoeing, cycling, zoo, riding etc), Puy de Fou theme park (the fourth most popular attraction in France), Lac de Rochereau Sigournais, the Green Venice and Futuroscope are all nearby.

La Calliere, with a baker, butcher, restaurant, tabac, well-stocked Spar, bank and ATM, and café, is 10 minutes' from the house. The Renaissance town of Fontenay le Comte (with a traditional Saturday market) the picturesque town of Chantonnay, both with restaurants, cafes, shops and supermarkets, are also nearby.

La Chevriere is very relaxed, both beautifully quiet and full of potential for active family holidays. The house - which you will have full access to - sleeps eight with 2 upstairs bedrooms and 1 downstairs. There are electric fitted radiators (in upstairs bedrooms) and electric radiator downstairs. The house has a family kitchen and living room (both with wood-burning stoves - wood provided) and a bathroom with bath/shower and electric towel rail. The thick farmhouse walls make the house beautifully cool in the summer and snug in the winter.
