Sleeps 5 plus a cot. Le Jardin is single storey, but not all on one level.

The living area is open plan and opens on to a large covered 3 metre square terrace.

We are 2 kilometres out of the village which has a very good child friendly restaurant ..which also does " take away food " The town of La Chataigneraie is only 10 minutes away and has 3 supermarkets.For keen walkers the village restaurant is very possible on foot !

Each gite has its own terrace too, again with patio furniture. Barbecues and fuel are available for a relaxing meal on your terrace or in the gardens. There is a shaded boules park, games room in the barn. The shared pool of 8 by 4 metres is heated and has a terrace and furniture to relax on. Le Jardin's own terrace is adjacent to the pool area. The pool has a security cover and alarm. Last year, when 3 families shared the 2 gites ...yes, 7 children .. the garden was really well used each evening for "en famille " cricket !! Everyone having a super time.

Coast/Beach:

Lots of beaches on the Vendee coast, an easy drive of an hour and a quarter. The wonderful Ile de Re, often described as " Paris by the Sea " is only an hour and half away and well worth a visit. Superb for flat family cycling !

Local to us in Mervent we have a lakeside beach with sailing and pedalos. The Mervent Forest is just great for walks and cycling ....and even better when shade is required during high summer! it also has a small child friendly Zoo.

Travel:

We are in a beautiful rural area... so a car is essential. Our local village is 30 minutes walking distance...or 5 minutes in the car!

We are well positioned for airports

La Rochelle, and Poitiers are both 1.5 hours away

Nantes is 2 hours

By car, we are 5 hours from Caen, 4 hours from St Malo and 7 hours from Calais

all very easy driving.

Distances:

St Hilaire de Voust is 2 kilometres

La Chataigneraie is 12 kilometres

Fontenay Le Comte is 20 kilometres

Puy du Fou recently voted No. 1 theme park in the World! is only 45 minutes away.

Futuroscope is 1.5 hours

Further Details:

La Chataigneraie has 2 very large supermarkets...the size of Tesco or Sainsbury and also our very own Lidl. Fontenay has 2 even larger supermarkets aswell as an Aldi.

Fontenay has 25 restaurants ..including Hotel de Vendee ... superb cuisine in " Paris Bistro style and at lunchtime a very reasonable 13 euros for a 3 course lunch

Cycle hire is available locally, and we have kilometres of cycle tracks in the area which start just at the end of the lane ! Only 10 minutes away horse riding is available for all abilities. 15 minutes away is sailing, and the "lakeside beach" All in all the area has such a variety of activities and places to see.... I am sure you will be able to find something to entertain and interest your family or party. We are always happy to help and advice ....I am a keen cyclist and very willing to advise or / and accompany if you would like me to.
