Overview

Description

Les Hirondelles

Les Hirondelles has been finished in the traditional cream coloured plaster over thick, stone walls beneath a low slopping roof covered in the local curved tiles. You can enter Les Hirondelles from the front door and then along a short passage, or from the patio through the french windows, into a cool, tiled dining area and lounge with a well-equipped, open plan kitchen at one end and all with a high, wood beamed ceiling going up to the apex of the cottage. The stairs mount directly out of the lounge to the mezzanine floor of the, now, low beamed double bedroom! Returning to the front door via a doorway hidden behind the stairs, you will find the shower room and the twin bedded room nearby.


About the property

All tastefully renovated, quality accommodation sleeping 4, 6 or 9

Our three properties are in a small hamlet near Cheffois in the Vendée, south of the Loire valley and between the cities of Nantes and Poitiers. They were built between 150 and 200 years ago but have been renovated and modernised over the last few years. The original farmhouse and barns have been converted to three properties - the farmhouse called Le Rossignol, and two gîtes, Les Lavandes and Les Hirondelles. They stand in around one acre of private and secluded gardens, with many areas of flowerbeds, lawns and shady corners. In the gardens is the shared pool with its terracotta coloured terrace and ample space for sun worshippers. To one side of the terrace is a gazebo where you can escape from the heat of the sun or, if you are energetic enough, play table tennis. There is even a more open area where, during the cooler parts of the day, the children (big and little!) can play football –even football nets are provided! Year round hire is available. All properties are non-smoking.

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

All good. Very nice quiet location surrounded by attractive countryside. The kids enjoyed the pool and table tennis, and we also played some of the board games in the house. The Patio and BBQ were well used in the evening, and surrounding garden are nicely maintained.

We would be happy to return.

3 jours de detente....

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons séjourné avec nos deux enfants 5 ans et 1 an pendant 3 jours du moin 3 nuits car nous étions au puy du fou sur les deux jours et nous avons vraiment apprécié le confort apporté par les propriétaires. ..

tout pour etre bien ..le necessaie de cuisine..frigo ..congélateur ..la machine avec la lessive..le lit parapluie pour bébé. .le barbecue..et même les sac pour aller faire des courses...que demander de mieu !!!! Ah si la bouteille de vin offerte ... un vrai grand merci !!!!

La piscine a partagé avec les 2 autres maisons ne pose aucuns souci car chaque familles vit différemment donc on a pu en profiter tranquillement et meme se faire un ping pong pendant que notre fille de un an faisait du 4 pattes car c est bien sécurisé. ..

petit bemole sur la salle de bain avec la douche qui est petite et qui meriterais un coup de frais! !!

Pas de difficultés a trouver même si c est au fond de la campagne mais en 10min de voiture vous êtes au super marché ...

bref un bon moment de repos en famille dans cette maison mitoyenne de charme! !!

Merci pour l hospitalité!!!!!!

Super séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Une superbe petite location, très bien équipée et aménagée!

Au calme et dans un cadre vriament dépaysant!

Certes les premiers commerces sont un peu loin, mais il faut juste prévoir!

Et les propriétaires nous proposent de nombreuses choses à disposition que l'on ne trouve pas dans d'autres endroits (draps, serviettes, éponges,liquide vaisselle, savon à main etc...)

Très agréable!

Quant à la télé... l'on cpate très bien les chaines principales... Largement suffisant

Merci

Bien équipé et très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Le gite est très bien équipé et très confortable. On a apprécié le jardin et la piscine pour se rafraichir en fin de journée. La proximité du Puy du fou est un plus (35 mn en voiture)

Instructions très complètes permettant d'utiliser au mieux tout le matériel existant dans le gite. Nous y avons passé une semaine très agréable.

Car: necessary

From our hamlet, La Guérinière, it is not far to Maillezais where you could take a punt to explore the green waterways of Le Marais Poitevin, or you could relax on the beach at La Tranche-sur-Mer. La Rochelle with its bustling, fortified harbour is only 35 miles further down the coast. You could even spend a whole day at Puy du Fou being delighted by their dramatic re-enactments of an invasion by Vikings or Roman gladiator fights and chariot racing in a huge coliseum, or, if the history and the future of film is your thing, then a visit to Futuroscope near Poitiers is a must. You could, of course, visit a museum - every town has a least one covering all manner of interests - or even try out a restaurant or two – there are many, sometimes in the most unexpected locations, around the area. For those who enjoy a local market, there is a big one at Fontenay-le-Comte every Saturday selling food, clothing, jewellery and some unusual gifts. Other local towns hold markets on different days.

Other Activities: Bungee-jumping, micro-light flying, paint balling
