The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

La Vendée enjoys a micro-climate comparable to that on the Côte D'Azur with warm, sunny Summers and mild, clear Winters. Le Thou is ideally located just minutes from the beautiful ancient town of Fontenay-le-Comte, and just 10 minutes from the Mervent Forest National Park, over 12000 acres of forest and lakes, with many excellent walks, canoeing, sailing and even archery offered at the excellent activity centre.

The many beautiful sandy beaches of La Vendee and Charentes Maritimes are less than an hours drive, as is the charming seaside town and harbour of La Rochelle.

Closer to home, within a 5 minutes drive is Xanton-Chassenon, a sandy beach with supervised bathing, waterslides, a childrens play area, picnic area, pedaloes and canoes, alongside the freshwater lake.

Fontenay le Comte

Also for the children, Futuroscope theme park at Poitiers is 1 hours drive, and just minutes away is the Pierre-Brune park with mini karting, slides and rides. We highly recommend Puy Du Fou. A theme park with gladiator arena and medieval re-inactments.

For a change of pace, the Marais Poitevin, with its Venise Vert waterways, are just 20 minutes away.

For the adults, the local vineyards offer tastings, and the famous Cognac houses are within easy reach.

"Beautiful farmhouse everything you need for a great holiday"

What a picture postcode place. Beautiful decor and grounds. Everything had been thought of. A great base to explore or to just chill out by the pool. Going back again for sure. We went with two friends but it is perfect for families with children as there is everything to keep them amused. Pool, bouncy castle, trampoline, bikes, games & toys, table tennis (which we had great fun playing after a few bottles of the local wine) and table football. An outdoor kitchen is perfect for eating alfresco. All in all i perfect place to rent out.

"A Home from Home!"

A beautifully renovated french farmhouse with all the essentials plus lots of nice extra touches. Plenty to do and see in the area and a lovely part of France to visit.
