Location description from owner

The Pays de la Loire region

Vende is a hugely popular holiday destination for both French and foreign tourists and, as you would expect, there are an endless amount of attractions on offer. The Puy du Fou is an exceptional leisure park with an incredible night time show which is world famous and the park at Futuroscope in Poitiers is also amazing. The forest of adventures Mervent brings tree climbing and zip wires to a new level and the park at Pierre Brun is a delightful 'French' experience for all the family. There is go-karting, kayaking, horse riding, biking, hiking and even micro light flying and bungee jumping all readily available within a short distance.
If you prefer to kick back a bit and relax, the Taz Bar in the Cheffois village is highly regarded and recommended and there are other fabulous restaurants nearby. Plenty to do for people of all ages and preferences. More information with contact details are available on your arrival.

“Another excellent trip”

Reviewed 1 Jun 2015

This was our 2nd stay at the property. We are 2 adults & 1 dog. Once again we had an excellent holiday, with excellent facilities & fishing. Hosts are very helpful & hospitable, who go out of their way to make guests feel welcome. We plan to return for a third trip in September.

“Our Favourite Place to Stay in France”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2014

This is our 2nd holiday here & we can't wait to return again next year!! The Gite has everything you need & more and is in a lovely quiet location. An added bonus is the heated pool and fishing lake. The Noble family made us feel very welcome and were amazing hosts. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

“Absolutely Wonderful!!!!!!”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2014

From the moment we arrived to the day we departed we felt welcome and extremely well looked after. Glenn, Svitlana and Vincent were wonderful hosts, the amenities were excellent, the Gite was fab, and the welcome pack much appreciated. The surrounding area is beautiful and very near shops etc. only 30 minutes to Puy du Fou, an amazing day out. We loved every minute and hope to return with extended family. There is a feeling of calm and peace and it restores the spirit. It is perfect for couples or families alike as the environment is very safe and comfortable, but if it is activity you are looking for you can swim in the very inviting pool, or fish or take bikes out. We loved it.!! Thanks again Glen, Svitlana and Vincent. Susan, Fred and Grace :-)

Thank you very much for your kind words. Svitlana

“There is simply no better destination in the Vendeé”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2014

We have now stayed at Lakeside for three consecutive years and the moment we arrive we instantly remember why we keep coming back. It is one of the most beautiful locations for a holiday, a picture of calm overlooking the lake and the new island gazebo. The Gites - of which we have stayed in both - are of the highest standards and are a perfect example of comfort. Glenn and Svetlana are the perfect hosts - the kind of people who you will consider as close friends even though you may have only just met them! In summary Lakeside Gites is: Fabulous location, Quality accommodation, Unparalleled Hospitality and Total relaxation.

Mike, thank you for your review and hope to see you here again one day. Svitlana
