The Pays de la Loire region

Our area of the Marais Poitevin is also known as the Venise Verte (Green Venice) and is world renowned by artists who come here for the light, the variety in the innumerable shades of green and to capture the magic of this enchanting area. The landscape is criss-crossed by a system of canals lined by willows and poplar trees. The canals are surrounded by green vegetation which is where the name of Venise Vert originates. You can hire flat bottom boats to explore the canals or hire a bike and have a morning cycling the road side canals are quiet, flat with wonderful scenery.

We are in the south of the Vendee, close to La Rochelle and the Ile de Re both with fabulous beaches.

In the Vendee you will find fabulous coastline with its sandy beaches all within 50 minutes from us.

A trip to the history theme park “Le Puy du Fou” is an unforgettable day out for all the family – not to be missed (1 hour drive).

"Amazing food in abundance, stunning region, all the quality comforts for a luxurious stay."

We received such a warm welcome and were immediately made to feel at home during our 5 day stay in Sept 2012. We were spoilt with the multiple courses of decadent food provided for us, Emma & Dave even made the effort to source a huge French cheese board when they discovered my love for quality French produce. They assisted us in exploring the multiple tourist sights in this beautiful region of France, they escorted us to local vineyards, markets, restaurants, the Ile de Re, Coulon Canals and La Rochelle. If you love food, relish the French countryside and enjoy hosts that value the personal approach on holiday - I have no doubt Dave & Emma will accommodate your needs to ensure an unforgettable experience, just as they did for us. We left feeling as though we had known them both forever, it allowed us to appreciate a traditional French village and it will be the first place we stay again when we return to France.

"Fantastic, Highly recommend"

This house has been renovated to a very high standard. It has a beautiful swimming pool set in a fabulous garden with a large sun deck. The owners were welcoming and friendly, and the meals were delicious. If you want a peaceful, get away from it all break this is perfect. With lovely places to visit within easy reach. Three great bedrooms, all on suite, stunning kitchen and guest lounge, perfect for all the family. I can recommend highly enough.
