Description

La Maison du Soleil is located in the peaceful hamlet of Les Chaffauds and has great views over the surrounding 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.

To the back of the house there are large gardens and an orchard of fruit trees. There is also a 4.5 metre circular heated pool 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!

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.

Lots of tourist attractions within an hours drive - including the Forest and Lake at Mervent, the artists' Village of Vouvant and the Marais Poitevin wetlands area - famous for its

The Puy du Fou Historic Theme Park is not to be missed - with Chariot races, Viking Ships, Jousting competitions and a fantastic Bird of Prey show along with an Evening show with a cast of over a 1000 actors and animals!

Further details indoors

La Maison du Soleil has been well restored by Paul & Isabelle, the owners, and now offers very comfortable accommodation, with exposed oak beams and stone walls throughout.

The living room is bright and sunny, with french doors opening out into the courtyard garden. There are 2 sofas and a small dining table and chairs. There is a TV with UK and French satellite channels (Freesat), a DVD player and stereo. Internet access is also available, via a cable and desk in the hallway.

The kitchen is fully equipped with electric oven, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, kettle, toaster and coffee maker.

The shower room is located on the ground floor and has a large double shower cubicle and twin sinks, with a separate WC next door.

Upstairs there are two good sized bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds. Both have plenty of storage for clothes. A stairgate is available for the safety of your children.

Further details outdoors

La Maison du Soleil shares the courtyard garden with one other 3 bedroom holiday home - Les Ammonites - located next door. There is a private seating and BBQ area for each house, and a further seating area on the other side of the large barn in the main gardens - great for watching the sun set with a glass of local wine!

The gardens are enormous, and mostly laid to grass, with a small orchard of fruit trees and a set of swings for the children.

The 4.5m circular heated pool is fenced off from the courtyard garden and is surrounded by sun loungers.

Parking is available to the side of the house, on the newly created drive way.

The house is accessed via the kitchen door, through the courtyard garden.

Location description from manager

The Pays de la Loire region

La Maison du Soleil 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, and is well known for being the second sunniest part of France after the Mediterranean coast.

The weather is generally good from Easter until 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 of course - miles of sandy beaches along the coast.

Sainte Cecile

The hamlet of Les Chaffauds is located only 3km 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.

La Maison du Soleil 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.
