If you stay 4 nights or more you will receive a 10% dscount on published prices - for longer stays an extra discount can be negotiated.

Why go "Self Catering" Let mum have a Holiday as well and let Val, your hostess, do all of your cooking (not to mention the washing up!)Our dinners are 2 courses with wine - 18 euros per person and 3 courses with wine - 20 euros per person. Childrens menu half price with a soft drink. Picnic boxes can be ordered 24 hours in advance. All of our food is homemade using local produce wherever possible. You will be asked what foods you don't or can't eat, so you are assured of a meal to your liking .

Although our availability looks like we are empty, please note that we are practically full on other dates, so please contact us as soon as possible to enquire if we have a room.

The area is ideal for exploring with lots to see and do. Why not visit the famous Abbey at Nieul sur L'Autize and the working water mill where démonstrations in bread making are given. Or take the children into Mervent and visit Parc Pierre Brune or perhaps the adventure park. The Marais Poitevin is only 8 kms where you will see lots of different wildlife. A bit further away (50kms) the famous port of La Rochelle where "people watching" over a cup of coffee is a must. Or try Les Sables d'Olonne. You'll think you've taken a wrong turning and arrived in the South of France! Just 1 hour by car is the infamous Puy du Fou, a must for anyone to visit and if you are Lucky enough to be here during the nightly spectacles, boy oh boy, are you in for a treat! Its breathtaking! Or why not try Futuroscope. Its a fabulous day out.

I could go on and on as I've lived here for 20 years, but why not come and visit and see it for yourself! (have I stolen that from a TV advert!)

Garden available but not fully enclosed We are just 25 metres from the river L'Autize. Fishing possible. Quiet location but well positioned to visit the Vendée and surrounding departments.

There is so much to see and do, you won't know where to start first!

The Pays de la Loire region

Our region offers many activities from cycling, parasailing,gliding, canoeing,horseriding etc It is great for walking or cycling as the vast area of the Vendée is flat. We are just 3 kms from the famous Abbey which was once owned by Elionor of Aquitaine at Nieul sur L'Autize where on Thursdays your children can dress up and go back in time. Just 8 kms is the Marais Poitevin where a promenade in a punt is a must with or without a guide (but its more fun without!). We have a micro climate which makes us the second sunniest place in France. It doesn't matter what type of sport you are looking for our region can offer most of it. The golf course at Mazieres en Gatine is stunning not just the course but the château.

For those not into sport you are catered for as well. Our local beach offers you relaxation without having to go far. Or perhaps a stroll around the Mervent Forest, or perhaps a visit to the local zoo. Why not see a what a working mine was like and its village.

The Kids are catered for as well like Parc Pierre Brune where you can easily spend the day and its adventure parc. Every Thursday at the local Abbey the kids can dress up and go back in time to the days of Richard the Lionheart. There's also the Abbey at Mailezais with its various spectacles during July and August. If you are into markets Fontenay le Comte has a market every Saturday morning but there is a stunning market at Niort on Thursdays and Saturdays (just 20kms) or even more stunning the market at La Rochelle.

A little further away you have the Puy du Fou. Worth the ride as it is an excellent day out. Not forgetting Futuroscope. Its not only entertaining its educational.

The Ile d'Ré is beautiful to visit but make sure you have a map!

rest assured yu won't get bored!


We are close to the famous abbaye at Nieul sur L'Autize. Just 10kms from the Abbaye at Maillezais; 10 kms from the Venise Vert where a punt on the river should not be missed. Our village also boasts its own man made beach with lake, which has been completely revamped. If you are Lucky enough to be here on July 14th they have the most spectacular fire works display absolutely free.

Mervent forest is just 10 mins by car, as is Vouvant where there are many horse and walking trails.

If you are into historic buildings you won't be disappointed - from houses to churches to abbays.
