About the property

Countryside home in the beautiful Vendee, for up to six people.

Upstairs there are three large bedrooms, a double with en-suite, a comfortable twin, a large dual-aspect double and the family bathroom.The ground floor has a large kitchen/dining room with original beams, large fire place with wood burner and dining and seating for all. The cooker is all electric and there is a large range of cookware available, although al-fresco dining around the barbecue is more fun!

Satellite television and internet access through the Smart TV with local French stations is available, particularly for those days when the garden and above-ground pool cannot tempt you whether from it being too hot or rather dull.

The Library with its high beamed ceiling is comfortable and cool even in the highest temperatures, with a huge range of reading material for all ages.

The garden is mature with large lawned areas, with a variety of fruit trees, apples, pears, plums, quince and a lovely cherry with 3 varieties of nut tree. Lots of Outside space for the Table tennis table, volleyball/badminton net and the choice of garden games available

Local attractions include 'Le Grand Parc' at Puy de Fuy, the most popular French spectacle, an amazing day out and the Mervent forest with its myriad activities and views based around the beautiful Vendee river. The source of the river at La Tardier, is one of many local lakes and has a lakeside pool for youngsters and café' (other lakes are available!) There is a large number of famous villages locally, details if which can be found in the comprehensive collection of Tourist information in a folder in the house and the Tourist Information centres locally. Maps and directions are included.

Mouilleron-en-Pareds is itself famous throughout France for its World War connections and being the site of one of France's 'Viewing points'.

The Vendee is famous for its cycle-friendly routes, in fact there is a safe route that goes completely round the department and can be joined only 2km from the house. There are 3 cycles in the barn that visitors are free to use (at their own risk) and cycling to La Chataigneraie, Chantonnay and the Mervent/Vouvant forest can be achieved without the need to use main roads. (The Vendee is famously flat and was the starting point of Le Tour De France in 2012)

The coast is 70km east and the historic port of La Rochelle is less than an hours drive as is the exclusive Ille de Re', western France's 'Riviera'.
