A LARGE SPACIOUS & WELL PRESENTED HOUSE,SET IN 1 1/2 ACRES OF FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE

Secondigny House Rental Photos and Description

French Cottage, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8 Adults (10 with Children)

A large spacious and well presented house, set in one and a half 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 today's 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 games room 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.

** 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.140km of Beaches lining the coast of the Vendee, all renown for their cleanliness and water quality, are always a worthwhile drive for a family day out.
