This is a 1 bedroomed cottage located on the outskirts of a lovely village in the South Vendee. The cottage is within the grounds of the owner's house and is separated by a large barn/garage; it has its own private patio and sitting area with access to a lawn area to the front of the cottage that gets sun all day and in to the evening. There is a 5m diameter plunge pool available, shared with the owners. The owners use a separate part of the garden in front of the main part of the house. A Wi-Fi connection is available

Guests are welcome to help themselves to the fruit and vegetables that we grow, whatever is in season during their stay.

A dog is quite welcome - we walk ours in a wooded area a couple of minutes up the road.

The accommodation provides a living/kitchen area with an archway through to a utility area with a large fridge/freezer and then into the bathroom. There is one spacious bedroom coming from the living area.

Living/Kitchen Area

The kitchen is well equipped with gas cooker (4 hobs and oven) complete with extractor hood, separate electric mini-oven, microwave, kettle and more than adequate utensils cutlery and crockery. A washing machine and tumble dryer are available at all times in the Utility Room of the main house.

The living area is comfortable and spacious and includes TV with built-in DVD player. (English programmes through a satellite dish).

Bedroom

The bedroom is fully furnished with a double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside tables. The room is sufficiently large to accommodate a child's bed/cot that can be made available on request. A highchair is also available if required.

Good size bathroom with bath, shower, WC and hand wash basin.

The cottage is set in a quiet rural village location. It is on the edge of the village of L'Hermenault and within easy walking distance of patisserie/boulangerie, tabac/cafe, small supermarket, pharmacy, post office, banks (with 24 hour cashpoint), doctor (English spoken) and dentist. In addition to the plunge pool in the garden there is an open air public swimming pool, with children's paddling pool, only a 5 minute walk along the road (open in July and August). There is also a tennis court in the same complex – bookable through the Marie's Office in the village.

The Cottage is between the historic market towns of Fontenay-le-Comte and Lucon.

The Vendee offers attractions for all. The open countryside all around the property is quiet, tranquil and excellent for cycling, walks, bird watching, painting and wildlife or just generally relaxing, whilst on the doorstep lie numerous places of interest and outdoor activities to suit everyone.

You can reach the Vendee beaches in less than an hour. Most beaches are backed by sand dunes and pine forests with large areas for picnics and scenic coastal walks. The Vendee coast stretches for 120km and boasts many blue flag awards. There is also a large man-made beach/activity park within 25 mins drive at nearby Xanton-Chassenon which has recently been renovated and offers an alternative to the beach.

The pretty harbour of La Rochelle with its famous aquarium, numerous bars and restaurants and great shopping is approximately 45 minutes away. Futuroscope and Puy de Fou are approximately 1.5 hour's drive. The Marais Poitevin with its waterways, boat rides and abbeys is less than 30 minutes by car. The Mervent Forest and Lakes are a 20 minute drive away as is the picturesque village of Vouvant, with its local artists, and provide the opportunity for woodland and lakeside walks.

The nearest airports are La Rochelle and Nantes; 45 minutes and 1 hour drive respectively. Poitiers is also accessible by car in 1 hour 15 minutes. The driving times from the channel ports are St Malo (3 hours), Caen (4 hours) and Cherbourg (5 hours).
