SPACIOUS FARMHOUSE, HALF AN ACRE OF PRIVATE GARDEN, CLOSE TO LA TRANCHE SUR MER

La-Tranche-sur-Mer Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom farmhouse sleeps up to 6, set in a pretty Vendéen village

Situated in St Benoist-sur-Mer on the edge of the Marais Poitevin, La Fermette sleeps up to 6 people in two spacious bedrooms, 1 double and 1 quad. The living room has a feature fireplace with modern furnishings and UK TV channels. The large open plan dining room and kitchen is fully-equipped with a large fridge-freezer and cooker. There is also a full-size dishwasher so that you're not wasting your precious holiday-time on the mundane task of washing-up!

St Benoist-sur-Mer has a friendly bar/restaurant and local shop called 'Le Lapin Qui Fume'.It is just a short stroll from La Fermette.

The beautiful beaches of La Tranche-sur-Mer and Les Conches are 12km away, a short car journey or pleasant cycle ride.

The area: The Vendée has a microclimate which means that the area enjoys up to 2600 hours of sunshine a year. This is almost as many as the south of France and almost twice as many as London! Well-established as a tourist area you will find activities to suit all of the family. From a castle in Talmont-St-Hilaire and a tower in Moricq to a zoo in Les Sables d'Olonne there really is something for everyone. All towns have local produce markets, wonderful opportunities to try local specialities and soak up some of the friendly Vendéen atmosphere. The summer also sees the area hosting many music festivals and watersport competitions. Every four years the world famous Vendée globe race sets off from Les Sables d'Olonne and the Vendée is regularly featured in the itinerary for the Tour de France cycle race.

Situated in the southern reaches of the Loire valley, the Vendée has four main wine-producing areas : Brem-sur-Mer, Vix, Pissotte and Mareuil-sur-Lay. Visits and tastings can be arranged and most restaurants stock local wines for you to enjoy.

For history buffs l'Historial de la Vendée is the place to visit. Telling the long history of the area from pre-historic times to the present day there is also a simulated helicopter ride over the Vendée, exciting for visitors of all ages.

Slightly further afield are the leisure parks of Futuroscope and Puy de Fou both 'must-sees' for the family. For bargain-hunters, Cholet has a designer outlet - Marques Avenue with many popular labels at reduced prices.

NICE HOUSE IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 7, 2009
  • Stayed: Jun 2009
La Fermette is a really nice house in a quiet village and is in a great location for the coast, e.g. La Tranche, with Les Sables d'Olonne or La Rochelle only a short drive away.
It is in an excellent position for people who like to cycle, as there are many marked cycle routes close by (one goes right by the house). There is also a nature reserve a short walk from the house, where you can see beavers and coypu swimming, as well as many types of birds including Heron & Cygnone Blanc.
Inside the house had a great kitchen, nice bedrooms and a comfortable lounge.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children

We have had a lovely 2 weeks here!

The accommodation has helped make our holiday a memorable one. The gite is lovely, cool in the heat of the day and comfortable in the evenings. It more than lived up to our expectations. The location was also a good place for us to visit the places we had planned. All the best, kind regards.

Lovely stay in the sun!

Great beach - Les Conches (which you can take dogs onto) with fab surfing lessons. Very nice place with all of the equipment we needed. Great garden - the dogs had plenty of room to run around! The local bar/bakery/restaurant is good for bread and a nice meal. La Tranche sur Mer has a very good evening market and it's nice to walk along the boardwalk or the beach. Overall we had a fantabulous time and will hopefully be back soon.

We had a fantastic stay at La Fermette. Lovely quiet location in a beautiful area but still central enough to visit plenty of places. Great size garden for the kids to play in. The house had everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

A perfect holiday house.

We came here last year and when we came here this year it was so exciting when we arrived. Not only is it a great gite to stay in but there are great facilities - such as beaches, cycle rides and supermarkets. I would definitely come here again. Also the garden is massive.

Car: recommended

St Benoist-sur-Mer is on the edge of the Marais Poitevin nature reserve. Within walking distance of La Fermette is a viewing area for the marshes and a canoe rental centre. The 11th century church with the famous smoking rabbit on the top is visible from La Fermette. In the village is a bar/restaurant/local shop called Le Lapin Qui Fume. Well-placed for the beaches at both La Tranche-sur-Mer and Les Conches (both under 15 minutes by car), La Fermette really does offer the perfect blend of coast and countryside.

Other Activities: Canoeing in the village of St Benoist-sur-Mer
