Farmhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Delightful individual detached farmhouse with it's own private in-ground heated pool.
The farmhouse has 4 double bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room, separate kitchen. A large split level beamed lounge & dining room overlooked by a galleried mezzanine area. The dining room opens out onto a large sun terrace with views over the river and surrounding countryside.
The house is situated in the beautiful peaceful Southern Vendeen countryside overlooking the River Vendee. The area is a mix of sunflower fields, rolling hills with pretty limestone villages tucked away in river valleys; very reminiscent of the Cotswolds apart from the weather - the South of the Vendée benefits from a micro climate, giving the region a level of summer sunshine bettered in France only by the Côte d'Azur
A 10 min stroll to the village takes you to the boulangerie, supermarket and locally renowned restaurant and bar. Nearby is the Forest of Mervent – a vast nature lovers paradise of wooded valleys and lakes perfect for cycling & walking, sailing and canoeing with pony trekking also available - and Vouvant, a medieval town, one of the most beautiful villages in France with its Medieval ramparts, cobbled lanes and pretty houses all contributing to the picture postcard setting.
Marais Poitevin is also nearby - known locally as little venice, it is a maze of canals through small villages, fantastic for walks or you can hire boats with or without a guide to discover these waterways.
Puy du fou, one of France's most visited attractions is less than an hour's drive and well worth a visit.
Also nearby are the regal towns of Fontenay le Compte and La Rochelle and for fishing enthusiasts, Pescalis, is less than a 30 minute drive.
The front of the house and kitchen open onto a south facing terrace with table and chairs and built in bbq.
The terrace overlooks a private in-ground heated pool with wooden steps for access. An electric floating cover, operated simply by a key, gives full security to children (and adults if necessary!).
The garden is secured and screened to the lane.
From the pool, the garden descends to a large gravel driveway (fantastic for boules) and then to approx 1/4 acre of lawn area.
From the dining room, there is a further elevated terrace (facing eastwards) with views over farmland and the river vendee.
The cycle path on the doorstep is great for running, well worth taking bikes if you can.
