Location description from owner

The Pays de la Loire region

La Vende enjoys a micro-climate comparable to that on the Cte D'Azur with warm, sunny Summers and mild, clear Winters. Le Thou is ideally located just minutes from the beautiful ancient town of Fontenay-le-Comte, and just 10 minutes from the Mervent Forest National Park, over 12000 acres of forest and lakes, with many excellent walks, canoeing, sailing and even archery offered at the excellent activity centre.

The many beautiful sandy beaches of La Vendee and Charentes Maritimes are less than an hours drive, as is the charming seaside town and harbour of La Rochelle.

Closer to home, within a 5 minutes drive is Xanton-Chassenon, a sandy beach with supervised bathing, waterslides, a childrens play area, picnic area, pedaloes and canoes, alongside the freshwater lake.

Foussais Payre

Also for the children, Futuroscope theme park at Poitiers is 1 hours drive, and just minutes away is the Pierre-Brune park with mini karting, slides and rides. We highly recommend Puy Du Fou. A theme park with gladiator arena and medieval re-inactments.

For a change of pace, the Marais Poitevin, with its Venise Vert waterways, are just 20 minutes away.

For the adults, the local vineyards offer tastings, and the famous Cognac houses are within easy reach.

“Beautiful Le Thou”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2014

This is a lovely house, well restored with stone walls and oak floors. It has a big, well equipped kitchen, perfect for family gatherings and 3 great bathrooms. There is a huge enclosed garden which is ideal for children and dogs, and also a small swimming pool which we could not enjoy in October as it was too cold but must be great in the summer. We had a fantastic week with lots to do, especially mountain biking in the Mervent Forest. La Rochelle and the Marais Poitivin were both fairly near and interesting places to visit. We would definitely recommend this gite and hope to visit again before long. The owners were very friendly and always willing to help. Thank you Jerry and Karen's!

“Fantastic house, great facilities”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2014

Le Thou is a beautiful French farmhouse with great facilities for all the family. It is set in extensive grounds which are very safe for dogs, we had 3 with us and they enjoyed it as much as we did. It is within s short drive of a small town with local shops and bakery and 20 minutes to a larger town with two supermarkets and good bars and restaurants. The house is quiet and relaxing, don't expect party central ;) would suit large families or two families with children. The hosts are very helpful and accomadating and we had good support whilst there. All in all I would recommend it for a family holiday.

“Beautiful farmhouse everything you need for a great holiday”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2014

What a picture postcode place. Beautiful decor and grounds. Everything had been thought of. A great base to explore or to just chill out by the pool. Going back again for sure. We went with two friends but it is perfect for families with children as there is everything to keep them amused. Pool, bouncy castle, trampoline, bikes, games & toys, table tennis (which we had great fun playing after a few bottles of the local wine) and table football. An outdoor kitchen is perfect for eating alfresco. All in all i perfect place to rent out.

“A Home from Home!”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2014

A beautifully renovated french farmhouse with all the essentials plus lots of nice extra touches. Plenty to do and see in the area and a lovely part of France to visit.
