About Hérard de Maistre

A trained engineer, Hérard de Maistre is passionate about old stones and wood- he created his cabinet-making workshop in an old barn on the farm, while his wife sculpts in her workshop: the middle of the garden.

Hérard de Maistre purchased this house in 1988

Why Hérard de Maistre chose La Jonchère

Since we acquired these buildings, we have been renovating them so that they can be a place for fun and relaxation for friends and families.

What makes this house unique

Tranquility and peace, walks in the countryside and by the seaside.

Very comfortable and beautifully decorated renovated farmhouse in peaceful village

  • 4 of 5

Second time that we have stayed in this farmhouse. We love the area and the easy access to some fabulous beaches and the vendee countryside. Supermarkets within an easy drive, but village shop almost opposite for daily bread. Owners are friendly and accommodating- they respect your space but are happy to help if needed. .

fantastic house close to the sea

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the wonderful farm house. The house and garden has a lot of style / charme and is a place to relax. The owners are great - helpful, welcoming and very interesting people. They created a real treasure.

The distance to the sea is very short (about 15min by car) and there is plenty to do and see in the evironment - the owners gave us a lot of good recommendations. We can recommend the location without any hesitation and if we come again to the area, we would always wish to come back to that house.

Lot of Space and Privacy, Nice Owners

  • 4 of 5

The main house is very spacious and well equipped with everything you need. There are two sleeping rooms and the bathroom with a bathtub. In the smaller adjoining building there is another sleeping room with toilet and shower enclosure. In the end we found all the rooms and facilities as depicted. To particularise the description of the equipment of the kitchen: The hob has (only) space for two pots. The oven is a smaller model standing on the worktop. E. g. therefore we had to bake pizza for 4 persons in two shifts.

The village La Jonchere is not affected by tourism, good conditions for recreation. To go for the beautiful broad beach nearby Les Conches you need only 15 min by car.

We spend wonderful 3 weeks at this beautiful renovated location. Already the welcome by the owners Herard & Laurence de Maistre at our arrival was very cordial. They welcomed us with a bootle of wine, homemade jam, potatoes and eggs, what a surprise!

The owners lived on the same ground on an other detached area. During our stay we met and chatted them from time to time and they provided us with various advice - a very personal atmosphere!

In the spacious garden we always found a spot in the shade during the hot and sunny days. In addition two hammocks under old pine trees invited us to relax. Every day we bought fresh baguettes and croissants in the little shop 150 meter apart.

We felt very well in La Treille and would like to come back again one day.

quelles vacances !!

  • 5 of 5

un accueil formidable lors de notre arrivée, le nécessaire à petit déjeuner sur la table, nous avons été charmés par la maison avec son grand séjour cosy, sa cuisine typique et très fonctionnelle sous la mezzanine, la salle de bain à la déco magnifique la chambre indépendante avec sa salle d'eau et son WC, ainsi que son jardin privatisé avec 2 hamacs.

Les environs sont riches en activités et découvertes, nous en avons été agréablement surpris. Plages et stations balnéaires, bien sûr, mais aussi sentiers et marais ainsi qu'activités de loisirs et sportifs pour les plus jeunes et les moins jeunes.

Nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances.
