Watermill | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
A truly idyllic rural location on the banks of the river Sevre. Sumptuous accommodation combining the charm of an authentic historic mill with an outrageously modern interior decoration. You won't find anything like this elsewhere ! A unique holiday experience. Breakfast on your balcony with the view over the river. Relax on the deck right next to the water, to the sound of the waterwheel slowly turning and the river cascading over the centuries-old weir. A dip in the Jacuzzi with a glass or two, for those hot afternoons and warm evenings, or lovely walks along the river.
Just over a mile from the nearby village of Tiffauges for restaurants and amenities. In an area of attractive countryside with plenty of visits and holiday attractions nearby. One hour's drive takes you to the resort towns of the Vendee coast (Sables d'Olonne, St Gilles, St Jean de Monts) or to the chateaux and vineyards or the Loire valley.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The Vendee is an ideal family holiday destination, being very easy to get to (just 3 hours from the ferry port of St Malo), yet far enough south to enjoy a great climate. There is also easy fly-drive access via the nearby airports of Nantes and La Rochelle.
Note that from the north of the Vendee you also have easy access to the chateaux and vineyards of the Loire valley (Angers 1 hour).
In the Vendee you will find a wide choice of attractions to visit and holiday activities for the children, including many theme parks. There are many chateaux with history pageants and festivities, beautiful botanical gardens, and of course the fabulous coastline with its sandy beaches and excellent water sports facilities. A trip to the history theme park “Le Puy du Fou” is an unforgettable day out for all the family – not to be missed. In the south of the Vendee, there is also the famous “Green Venice” area, for a relaxing punt trip through the canals and waterways. The more adventurous will find plenty to keep them busy; go-karts, micro-lights, quad excursions, hot-air ballooning, tree adventure parks, paint-ball, as well as excellent surfing spots.
Looking for a special treat ? Book a ride in a hot-air balloon, starting directly from the house.
