The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

This is a fantastic part of France with beautiful countryside and lots to do. For cyclists and walkers there are thousands of miles of well marked routes, some of which lead straight off from the property. For anglers there are many lakes and rivers in the region and permits are easy and affordable to obtain. There is a major fishing centre Piscalis less than 30 mins drive away. There is also the lake at nearby Mervent where there are water sports and lake swimming available along with a waterside restaurant.

For families there is everything you could want for all ages from a Zoo, adventure park, tree top adventure park, acquarium, tank museum, Futrurscope and the amazing Puy du Fou all within easy reach to name but a few attractions. Plan d'eau nearby has a poolside restaurant and fantastic outdoor pool as well as pedalos on the lake and horse riding.

The area is blessed with a mediterranean climate and lots of lovely restaurants. There are many places worth visiting including many chateaux, some great French markets at Niort and Thours and the beautiful harbour town of La Rochelle. The atlanic coast is only an hour away as is sun soaked Il de Ré.

Within 10 minutes of the property is stunning Vouvant and historic Fontenay.And with so much to do in the area it still remains a peaceful setting.

"Lovely stay at Le Moulin"

A lovely peaceful and sunny spot - would recommend Le Moulin to everyone. The house was extremely clean and very well organised and simply lovely for families to have a super holiday in the most stunning countryside.

"Lovely escape from the real world"

The whole family really enjoyed our stay, the children had fantastic adventures in the woods and fields and the adults loved the view from the wine terrace. The standard of furnishings was very high. We also founds lots to do in the neighbouring area, we particularly liked plan d'eau and the market towns. We would thoroughly recommend and would hope to come back again.

"Idyllic rural retreat and a great place to stay."

Great time had by all. Kids loved the freedom to explore the grounds while adults soaked up the sun while having a few glasses of wine on the terrace.
The house is very big and well equipped, a home from home!
Plenty of things to do near by, great little swimming pool with water slide.
Went to a restaurant by a lake where children could swim safely.
A trip to Puy Du Fou theme park which is about an hour away is an absolute must!!!
