A great stay in the Vendée
We had a lovely week in the Vendee countryside. Enjoyed exploring the local area. Particularly enjoyed cycling in Mervent Forest, visiting the medieval village of Vouvant and paddling our own barque in Marais Poitevin.
The farmhouse was rustic. It had everything we needed. The pool was lovely to cool off in at the end of a warm day. Margarita was very hospitable and helpful.
We had a great week.
What a gem of a place! Located in the countryside, it's perfect for relaxation and sunbathing with a dip in the plunge pool when it's time to cool down. The property has 3 very spacious bedrooms -one ensuite. There is another shower room with toilet facilities. The kitchen is huge and very well equipped with everything needed to make gourmet meals! There is an open air barn which is great for respite from the sun and also for BBQ's. Another bonus is the Table tennis room and bicycles are available to roam the countryside or just to ride into the village to collect croissants,baguettes and pastries from the local patisserie!! There are many local attractions which are about 30mins from the property. The favourites are definitely Puy du Fou ( an historical rendition of the history of the Vendee) Truly fabulous experience. The water park is another must for all ages! The lake at Chassenon has all sorts of water sports and is only 15mins from the house.I could go on for hours about the accessibility of this wonderful location!!Finally, I have to mention the owner, Margarita. She is always there to help you but respects your privacy. Very reluctant to leave but we will be back!! Thank you, Margarita xx
What a fabulous review. Thank you for taking the time to write it. So glad you enjoyed your stay and found great places to visit. Would love to have you all back here. All the very best to you.
Lovely, quiet, well-equipped comfortable farmhouse in the country
Margarita is the perfect host, on hand for recommendations and guidance but never intrusive. Lovely house, comfortable beds and bathrooms, brilliantly equipped for cooking and lots of space. Great dark skies for star watching and surrounded by birds and wildlife, so a great base for touring around. Puy du Fou (45 mins away) was amazing and beats any Disney experience, Vouvant around 15 mins away great for walks and stunning location and of course beautiful beaches around an hour away. Thank you for a lovely holiday, just wish we could have stayed for longer!
Hi Julia, it was a pleasure having you all here.I'm delighted you enjoyed your holiday . Thanks a million for taking the time to do a review , especially on the accommodation. Hope you come back sometime, the very best to you all. Margarita x
Perfect location, beautiful french farmhouse!
We stayed here for a week in early July, the farmhouse is beautiful with everything you need for the perfect holiday! The location is ideal set in the country side very peaceful the perfect spot to see nature at its best but on the other hand close enough to the sites such as Puy du Fou and the water park. Margarita was the perfect host, on hand if you need her but left us to our own devices! The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and the accommodation was very spacious and very clean. We had a wonderful week and I would not hesitate to recommend. I would also like to add the plunge pool is bigger than expected and a welcome addition on a hot day, kept the kids entertained morning til night!
Wow, thanks Lynn for the review, so glad you liked it here. Hope you and everyone will come back soon . All the very best to you and your lovely family Margarita x
