Description from owner

Description

Les Ammonites is located in the lovely hamlet of Les Chaffauds in the Vendée countryside. The owners, who live next door, have lovingly restored the house, whilst retaining many of the original features - such as oak beams and stone walls. During the renovation process two large ammonite fossils were found in the front wall of the house - hence the name of the farmhouse!

To the back of the house there are very large gardens and an orchard full of apple & pear trees. There is also a 4.5 metre circular heated pool (separated from the courtyard by a fence) and an area set aside for sunbathing. There is a large patio area with barbecue and seating - great for al fresco dining and relaxing after a hard days site-seeing!

The ground floor is open plan, with a large living area at one end (with log burner, TV with UK & French TV channels, DVD player, stereo), a dining table in the centre and a fully fitted kitchen at the other end.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms - one

The ground floor is open plan, with a large living area at one end (with log burner, TV with UK & French TV channels, DVD player, stereo), a dining table in the centre and a fully fitted kitchen at the other end.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms - one with a double bed, and two with teo single beds each. A shower room and separate WC are also upstairs.

This is the ideal location for country walks, cycling along peaceful lanes or relaxing by the side of one of the nearby lakes - perhaps even fishing. The owners are always on hand with tips for the best routes and fishing spots.

There are lots of tourist attractions in the area - with the Puy du Fou Theme Park within 40 minutes and La Rochelle within an hours drive.

The beaches of the Southern Vendee are also only an hour away - with miles of clean sandy beaches for surfing, sand castles and rock pooling.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a large range cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine and there is a small breakfast bar and large dining table with seating for six.

There is a separate WC and cloakroom on the ground floor.

On the first floor there are three good sized bedrooms - one with a double bed and the other two each with two single beds. All bedroom have built in wardrobes and side tables. There is a stair gate for the security of your children. A cot and high chair are available for younger children.

The shower room has a shower cubicle and double hand basin, with separate WC. Two cots are available for younger children - but please bring your own bedding for these.

Further details outdoors

In front of the house is a large parking area with space for up to 4 cars. There are steps up to the front door.

There is a back door from the living room which leads to the rear gravelled courtyard where you will find a barbecue and seating area. This area of garden is security fenced with a gate leading to the pool area.

The circular heated pool is 4.5 meters in diameter and has a grassed area around it with sun loungers and seating nearby. The garden extends to over 2 acres - so has plenty of space to kick a ball or run around. As the house is situated on the top of a hill, there are stunning views across the valleys below and the sunsets are fantastic!

Location description from owner

The Pays de la Loire region

Les Ammonites is located in the Vendée Bocage, approximately a 50 minute drive from Nantes and the southern Vendée coast with its fantastic beaches. The Vendée has a micro climate, being the second sunniest part of France after the Mediterranean coast.

The weather is generally good from Easter to the end of September, and the area is also a great location for autumn & winter holidays - with rural walks and bird watching nearby. The landscape is varied - with rolling hills, flat farmland with fields of sun flowers, and miles of sandy beaches along the coast.

Sainte-Cecile

The hamlet of Les Chaffauds is located only 2km from Sainte Cecile, which has a bakery, butchers, chemist and a bar. Another 5 minute drive and you will reach Chantonnay whichhas many supermarkets, restaurants, banks and a weekly market.

In the summer there are many festivals and fetes held nearby, including a 3 day walking event and the French National Cycling Championships. All of the local villages and towns hold markets and the coastal towns have lots of evening entertainment on the beaches.

Les Ammonites is only 30km from the fantastic Puy du Fou historical theme park where you will be transported back in time to the age of Gladiators, Vikings and Musketeers - an unmissable day out!

There are forests and lakes nearby to explore, and the Marais Poitevin series of inland waterways and towpaths is only 45 minutes away.
