Les Lavandes in Vendée, a cottage in Vendée: Les Lavandes exterior

POOL, PRIVATE GARDEN. Close to Mervent-Vouvant forest and lakes with beaches.

The entrance to Les Lavandes is through green gates set in a high laurel hedge onto private gravelled parking. Les Lavandes has been finished in the traditional cream coloured plaster over thick, stone walls beneath a low sloping roof covered in the local curved tiles. You enter Les Lavandes from the patio into a cool, tiled lounge whose ceiling goes right up to the rafters while beyond is the low beamed dining area with a well-equipped, open plan kitchen to one side. Off the lounge are a bathroom (bath with shower over, wash basin and W.C.), double bedroom (ample wardrobe and drawer space) and stairs. The stairs lead to another large double bedroom and a very low beamed shower room (shower, wash basin and W.C.). Also leading off the landing is a mezzanine floor with a settee overlooking the lounge, and then through to a low beamed twin bedded room. Both upstairs bedrooms have ample wardrobe and drawer space and all the upstairs rooms have wooden floors and beamed ceilings that go up to the apex of Les Lavandes.
Les Lavandes has its own private garden and vine shaded patio where you can sit and enjoy a meal and a glass of wine in tranquil surroundings. Les Lavandes 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 Les Lavandes, Le Rossignol 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. Further afield is Maillezais where you could take a punt to explore the green waterways of Le Marais Poitevin after visiting the abbey. 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 a local weekly market, there is a one at Fontenay-le-Comte selling food, clothing, jewellery and some unusual gifts 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.
