|Les Trois Soleils||Self Catering||Sunday||4||10||4||Sofabed sleeps 2 persons + 4 double rooms + 2 cots|
A large spacious and well presented house, set in almost 2 acres of French countryside. Everything provided to make your stay as relaxing as possible. Guaranteed to help you forget those modern day stresses and strains of working life!
“Les Trois Soleils” is a 200 year old French farmhouse, completely renovated to cater for todays modern needs, whilst still retaining some of its unique original features. The original oak beams have been left exposed, the granite fireplace now has a modern addition of a multi-fuel stove, to keep you nice and warm during those cold winter nights. The old bread oven can be used as a gamesroom for all the family to enjoy some quality time together.
Situated on the Vendee/Deux Sevres border there is an abundance of things to see and do for all the family. For those seeking a peaceful and relaxing holiday, then also look no further. The house itself is situated at the end of a very quiet lane overlooking miles of open countryside and is therefore very private.
After a short stroll to the bakers for a fresh croissant you can sit and enjoy it sat outside, whilst listening to the birds in the morning. Enjoy a country walk or bike ride with the family, or a game of boules or tennis, while soaking up the glorious sunshine. Then at the end of the day, cook a bbq and sit out and watch the sun go down while enjoying a glass of wine or a cold beer.
A short walk to a bar, shop, bakers, tennis courts and football pitch. A short drive to large supermarkets in Moncoutant for everything else you require. A large open air swimming pool is located in Secondigny for public use, and is only 10 minutes away. A man-made beach with swimming can be found in Verruyes which is 30 minutes away. Both are very clean and tidy with childrens play areas to keep them further entertained whilst the adults soak up the sun or pop to the bars for food and drink.
The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee/Deux Sevres region.
This area is well known for its warm sunny climate and 2500 hours of French sunshine each year. Situated on the Gulf Stream bringing high temperatures to rival those of the South Coast of France. There are 140km of beaches lining the coast of the Vendee, all renown for their cleanliness and water quality, they are always a worthwhile drive for a family day out.
Changeover day:- Flexible but Saturdays preferred.
"Really enjoyed our stay at Les Trois Soleils, the house was well equipped with everything we needed, lovely kitchen, comfortable lounge with fab home cinema system and most of all comfy beds! Lovely quiet location just right for a 'get away from it all' holiday! Hope to be able to stay there again soon."
"A home from home, everything you need, ideal for a large/extended family.
Booked a weeks accommodation at Les Trois Soleils for 4 adults and 2 childern back in March2012. We were greeted by English speaking agents who were very helpful. Really happy with the property, clean well equipped (ideal if you have children) and very spacious, more than enough room for all of us. A real home from home."
Myself and a group of friends booked a stay at Les Trois Soleils for a relaxing break and we weren't disappointed! The accommoation was spotless and the facilities available are perfect from a group of friends to a family with young children, there are cots and highchairs etc. the tennis courts are a short walk away and are great fun."
" We stayed with our two grown up sons, one accompanied by his girlfriend, in this modern converted house in the summer of 2014. Our concern that we would be in each other’s way was soon dispelled in this well appointed and well equipped house. We had hired a car and found so many diverse and interesting places to visit and things to do, and also enjoyed the secluded garden and a number of walks in the countryside. The house is within walking distance of the village where we picked up our french baguettes and sometimes ate out. The locals are friendly and welcoming - a bonus to a relaxing holiday in the wonderfully sunny French countryside."
