The house has large private gardens at both the front and back and the private pool is exclusively for your use. There is an orchard with a variety of fruit trees (help yourselves!). There is a terrace at the front of the house with a large outdoor table and barbecue facilities. We have lots of garden games including boules, table tennis and badminton, we even have a short golf hole!
The Pays de la Loire region
La Vendée is a perfect destination for a varied holiday as it combines picturesque rural landscapes with miles of sandy beaches edged with dunes and pine woods; the tranquility of historic towns with the excitement of outdoor activities and theme parks; the fun of the Marias Poitevin’s canals (‘the Green Venice’), with the open air of the Mervent forest.
The region is blessed with a fantastic climate (often compared to that of the Cote d'Azur), water parks, castles, historic buildings and five 18-hole golf courses. You can visit the charming city of La Rochelle with its aquarium, maritime museum, seafood restaurants and historic buildings or visit Les Sables d’Olonne, a stylish French seaside town, a favourite for locals and Parisians alike, with daily covered market, café, restaurants, habour, beautiful white beaches and rock pools.
A wonderfully peaceful, rural area that offers lots of activities should you want them. La Chevriere is set in a quiet hamlet 10 minutes from traditional French villages like La Calliere and Vouvent and 25 minutes to market towns like Fontenay le Compte and Chantonnay. The house is in the bocage area of the Vendee, an area of rolling countryside dotted with lakes and forests. There are many quiet tracks and lanes perfect for walking and cycling.
You can move between the peace of our garden and pool to the excitement of sailing, canoeing, horse riding or mountain biking at Mervent within 15 minutes where there is also an amusement park, a high ropes centre and a zoo.
Puy de Fou - a medieval themed amusement park and one of the most popular attractions in France is an hour from the house as are the wonderful Vendee beaches, La Rochelle and Ile de Re. Futuroscope - the 3D theme park in Poitiers is 90 minutes away.

A beautiful, typical french farmhouse with an amazing pool and substantial garden. Every utensil supplied. Locals very friendly. Overal we had a very relaxing holiday and returned refreshed!

"Autumn in the Vendee - glorious colours, deserted beaches"
This was our second visit; our first time was in the summer when we used the excellent outdoor pool . The house is very French in character, comfortable and friendly without being overly luxurious or modish in design; a nice garden too. The village is very quiet, and the better bet for basic shopping is La Caillere, about 10 minutes away. The supermarket in Fontenay le Conte (25 minutes) has everything you might need. A short drive takes you to the very picturesque village of Vouvant, and a liitle further is Meuvent with great forest walks, bars and restaurants. La Rochelle is around 50 minutes away, and well worth a visit for both history and gastronomy. And the beaches around Les Sables d'Olonne are superb, and readily reached via the D949. But if you don't fancy the drive, there's always the pool, with the sheep bleating in the orchard as a backdrop.
