This is what the last visitor said:
Can I firstly say that everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay in Beaupuy and the children spent many hours either in or by the pool. We investigated parts of the Vendee and beyond and only really had 2 days of poor weather although even those were hot with some rain. We had 2 days at the Puy du Fou and took in the Cinescene, what magnificent shows they all were and wonderful memories to keep. You were correct about TinTin's veg., very reasonable and a lovely tasting vegetables.
Please accept my thanks for facilitating my extended family in your lovely home and we leave with happy memories and stories to relive our 2 weeks and we hope to return in the future.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the essentials such as a sink, oven/grill with 4 hobs, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, microwave and utensils. The cupboards are packed with all the cutlery you need: plates, bowls and cooking equipment. The dining table centres over a beautiful old fire place which gives a very cosy feel to the room. This room opens into the games room where there is a table to seat 12, so food can easily be taken out to sit at the larger table if needed.
In the evenings to sit and relax there are three rooms to choose from:
The games room has a rustic feel with many exposed beams, with a table that seats up to 17 people for evening meals; there is also a full size snooker table and table tennis table to entertain the family.
The first lounge has two comfortable settees to sit around chat or watch television or a film on the DVD or video players provided.
For quiet seclusion, the second lounge is ideal for reading or sitting in front of the gorgeous stone fire place with a glass of wine.

|Further details outdoors||
The house has a range of activities to offer from the active to the very relaxing! The games store contains outdoors games such as a cricket set, rounders, bowls, pool floats, tennis rackets and net and badminton rackets and net. These can all be used freely but require replacing into the games store once you are finished with them.
The pool is one of the main features of the house as it provides a large area to sit on sun loungers which are provided together with sun umbrellas. This is a brilliant area to sit, listen to music and bathe in the shining sun! The pool is very large (10 m x 5 m) and games can be played in it such as water polo which is our favourite! There are Roman steps leading to an area 1 metre deep where thereafter it descends to 2.5 metres, so diving here is not a problem. A small fence with a gate surrounds the pool to conform with current law, it can be locked to keep the children out when no adults are supervising!
A large car park is provided to the rear of the house which can accommodate up to four average sized cars!
