Le Rossignol in Vendée, a cottage in Vendée: Le Rossignol exterior

POOL, WiFi, veranda. Close to Mervent-Vouvent forest, lakes with beaches

The entrance to Le Rossignol is through two, large green gates set in a high, thick laurel hedge onto gravelled parking. Le Rossignol has been finished in the traditional cream coloured plaster beneath a sloping tiled roof. You enter through the front door into a large, cool dining area with a dresser and a large dining table and chairs. To one side is a well-equipped, open plan kitchen and to the other a splendid lounge with several comfortable settees and an enclosed fireplace. All of downstairs is tiled and has beamed ceilings. Stairs lead off the lounge up to four substantial, carpeted bedrooms, one double, two doubles each with a folding single bed, and one triple, all with ample wardrobe and drawer space. Also upstairs is a bathroom with bath and shower over, wash basin and W.C. and a large shower room with shower cubicle, twin washbasins and W.C. High, beamed ceilings are throughout the whole of the upstairs.
Step though the patio doors from the lounge onto the large covered veranda where there is plenty of space to sit and enjoy a meal and a glass or two of wine or soak up the peace and tranquillity while enjoying the views over fields of the gently rolling countryside.
Le Rossignol shares the fenced pool (open from mid May to mid Sept), surrounded by a terracotta coloured terrace and ample space for sun worshippers, with our other two properties. To one side of the pool is a gazebo with a table tennis table and an open area where even football nets are provided!
Our three properties are in a small hamlet near La Châtaigneraie, south of the Loire valley, with its famous chateaux and wines, and between the cities of Nantes and Poitiers. The original farmhouse and barns, which were built between 150 and 200 years ago, have been renovated and modernised over the last few years to become Le Rossignol, Les Lavandes and Les Hirondelles.
In the beautiful Mervent-Vouvant forest you can hire canoes, kayaks, sailing boats, pedal-boats, mountain bikes etc. or go to the Pierre Brune family amusement park or to the Natur’Zoo. You may also go walking, horse riding, fishing, karting or try an aerial adventure course in the trees, go up in a micro-lite or go bungee-jumping. A little further afield is Maillezais where you could take a punt to explore the green waterways of Le Marais Poitevin after visiting an abbey or a museum. At the coast you could visit La Rochelle, with its fortified harbour, or relax on the beach at La Tranche-sur-Mer. You can spend a whole day at Puy du Fou being delighted by their dramatic re-enactments of an invasion by Vikings or Roman gladiator fights and chariot racing in a huge coliseum, or, if the history and the future of film is your thing, then a visit to Futuroscope near Poitiers is a must. For those who enjoy weekly markets, there is one at Fontenay le Comte and larger ones at Niort and La Rochelle.
Tourist tax of 0.44€ pppn (aged over 12) and a security deposit of £200 payable with the balance.
