Description

Saint-Pierre-du-Chemin Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Village location - 5min walk to good restaurant, Sleeps 10 - 3 Bedrooms

Village location - 3 bed gite, just a 5 minute walk to the picturesque village of St Pierre Du Chemin in the beautiful Vendee region.

The gite comprises of a private 8 meter x 4 meter underground pool, games room (pub pool table and darts board), large lounge, dining, seating area, 4 bedrooms:

Bedroom 1 largest bedroom room double bed and 2 x bunk beds.

Bedroom 2 with a double bed

Bedroom 3 with twin beds (Ideal for children)

Bedroom 4 mezanie area with double bed

Lounge area - double sofa bed

Will sleep 12 in total.

2 bathrooms (both with showers, 1 as a ground floor wet room and the other 1st floor over bath to cater for any customer circumstance).

Outside there is an enclosed garden with 2 x eating areas (6 x seat table & 4 x seat table - great if the kids want to be a little independent) along with a BBQ and secure access to the pool area (under French law - lockable gate access to all pools to prevent accidents)

To the front of the property there is a large driveway with space for several cars and road access into the village.

The property currently has all new white goods - fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher to make you feel at home.

Free Wi-fi internet access to keep up to date online if you choose.

The TV system has all UK free view channels in the lounge area as well a brand new 42 inch smart TV.

Also paid channels for French satelite on a seperate satelite system.

To the rear of the property is a 'plan d'eau' -a large park area with lake, picnic areas (including washrooms, lighting, electric and games area). This is great place to walk, ride bikes and is a perfect way to enter the heart of the village in the summer.

In the village there is an award winning bakery, mini-supermarket, chemist, church, bank (with cashpoint) and a large bar serving menu routier - very popular Plat Du Jours at lunchtimes and serving bar meals most evenings including pizzas, burgers and fantastic fillet steaks.

Just 5 kms south is the town of La Châtaigneraie with 3 large supermarkets and further restaurants.

The village is located:

-1.25 hour from La Rochelle airport

-3.5 hours from St Malo

-4 hours from Caen

-4.5 hours from Le Havre

Located about an hour from La Rochelle and Nantes (with airports and high speed trains) and the white sandy beaches of the Vendee coast, you have access to many nearby facilities including Mervent (for sailing, canoeing, cycling, 'Go Ape', zoo, riding etc), Puy de Fou theme park, the Green Venice and Futuroscope.

Vendée does have some of the finest Theme Parks of their kind in France.

The largest and best known Theme Park in the Vendée is without doubt the Puy-du-Fou. The Park offers two distinctly different experiences with the Grand Parc du Puy du Fou operating during daytime hours and the spectacular Son et lumière of the Cinescenie which operates after dark. Both are unique and are world renown. The daytime experience requires an early start if you intend to see all of the attractions and such is the popularity of the Cinescenie that booking well in advance is advised.

If you want to get the most of your visit to the Vendée, there is no better way than by cycling or walking. One can discover the hidden treasures that only a leisurely pace will reveal. Within the Vendée a vast network of cycle tracks can be found, these have been designed for riding in complete safety while taking in the natural attractions that Vendée has to offer. There are over 1000 kilometres of tracks you can take a complete cycle tour of the Vendée. On the tracks everything has been put in place for maximum safety including designated cycle lanes and all the necessary signposts. One will also find excellent picnic areas along the route for relaxing and refreshing oneself.

A holiday never seems complete without a visit to one of those colourful markets that France is so famous for.

Though there has been a decline both in the number and size of markets in recent years due mainly to the increase in super and hyper-markets with lower prices and a larger range of products, there are still ample markets left for the visitor to enjoy.

La Châtaigneraie, Fontenay-le-Comte, Chantonnay, Bressuire, Cholet and Pouzauges are all local towns hosting weekly markets.

If you fancy something a little more informal and some potential real French bargains then there are plenty of Vide Greniers (car boot sales/ house clearance sales) across the region.

We had a really good break

  • 5 of 5

Great place, good pool and location. We had a slight problem whilst there which Kevin, even though in the UK, had sorted within a couple of hours, the kids didn't even know there was a problem. We will definitely return in the future. Thanks Kevin and Claire.
