The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The Vienne, with its two major river systems of the Charente and Vienne, is an area of varied natural beauty and extensive history. Visitors who are looking for either complete relaxation or activity will not be disappointed.

With its exceptional climate, second only to the South of France, the beautiful countryside lends itself to rambling, cycling, water sport and most other forms of gentle exercise.

The two major attractions of Futuroscope and Monkey Valley are close by. If it’s history you are looking for then look no further as this part of France has been fought over from Roman times onward.

Couhe

La Ferme des Châtaigniers (Sweet chestnut tree farm) nestles in the pretty little hamlet of Les Chaumes (The thatches) in the heart of the gently undulating countryside of the Vienne.

Our picturesque village of Vaux en Couhe boasts a lake, picnic area and straddling the river an 18th century communal washing area.

The bar and restaurant serves excellent value for money food and is open for lunch throughout the year and for dinner during the holiday season.

"Fantastic place and amazing hosts"

we stayed with three young children, the accommodation is fantastic and so well equipped.
The pool was amazing and was kept clean and warm throughout our stay, Mark and Andrea are two of the nicest people you could ever meet and cant do enough for you, they even brought new toys for our youngest half way through the holiday! They have the perfect balance of friendly yet discreet enough to allow you to enjoy your stay. we don't normally revisit a holiday destination but the whole family loved it so much we have booked again for next summer. Just hope the cocktails are as good next year......!!

"Wow!"

The gite is lovely, the gardens are lovely, and the pool is fabulous. But what sets this place apart is the hospitality. Mark and Andrea make sure you want for nothing and that all the things you need for your holiday they have thought about for you. Nothing is too much trouble but unless you need something you would barely know that they are there.

"A very pleasant stay."

We received a very friendly welcome. The first days we had rain, and could not swim, but we enjoyed the fire place very much. Furthermore the owners were very hospitable at all times. There is a nice swing in the back of the garden which our kids enjoyed very much, as well as the big swimming pool. It is verry quiet and perfect to relax, especially in the grate new chairs at the pool.

We are dissappointed that you felt it necessary to downgrade the review on the basis of 'directions to the property' as you were sent full instructional directions, SatNav directions and coordinates of the property. We are not sure what else we could have done?
