Chez le Marais in Vendée, a cottage in Vendée: Swimming Pool

Delightful 2 bedroom Gite, Private Heated Swimming Pool, in the Marais Poitevin

Situated in 2.5 acres of private mature wooded grounds, immediately overlooking the main Hollandais Canal, Chez le Marais offers a peaceful holiday in a completely relaxing environment.

Fully refurbished for the 2016 season, the property is within 15 minutes drive from the nearby historic market town of Fontenay le Comte, offering many shops, cafe-bars and restaurants, together with several Supermarkets for those all important supplies.

The local villages of Vouille les Marais, La Taillee and Le Poire sur Velluire, each around 5 mintues drive from Chez le Marais, offer local grocery stores, bakeries, pharmacy, hairdressers, and local bars/tabacs.

La Rochelle, Chatelaillon Plage, Ile de Re, and many of the beautiful beaches and resorts of the Vendee and Charente Maritime are all within 40 minutes drive.

Located in a local Nature Reserve within the Marais Poitevin National Park, the Gite is perfect for fishing directly from the Gite Terrace and from within the grounds, walking, cycling, bird-watching (in excess of 35 species can be spotted directly from the Gite Terrace), plus total relaxation. Truely a wildlife lovers paradise, with the added bonus of stunning views of the setting Sun. The location is also perfect for observing the moon and stars at night.

Guest comments within our Visitors' Book include..... "A truely beautiful spot for a relaxing break" ..... "A perfect place to unwind and chill out. The setting is so unspoiled and peaceful" ..... "Heaven on earth. More relaxing than the Maldives. Super Gite & fabulous grounds" ..... "One of our best holidays ever, the gite and surroundings are perfect. One of the warmest pools we have ever had" ...... "A wonderful, relaxing week in a Gite that surpassed anything we could have imagined" ...... "Congratulations on having the best equipped gite we've ever stayed in. This is the gite that all others should try to emulate" !

We believe our highest accolade is the significant number of repeat guest bookings we have been honoured to receive over the years, with several families having visited on 2 or 3 occasions. Indeed, during 2016, one family returned for their fourth holiday, and another family for their fifth holiday, and the same families have already booked for 2018!

The accommodation comprises open-plan lounge, dining area and kitchen, opening onto southwest facing terrace, overlooking the orchard and canal. Fully equipped throughout to a very high standard, including full gas cooker/oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, automatic washing machine, garden furniture, BBQ, and picnic coolbox with ice packs.
