Le Jardin in Vendée, a cottage in Vendée: Terrace

Cottagey gite, could sleep 6, all on ground level, terrace to pool

Le Pinier is a 300 year old farmhouse with 2 gites Le Jardin and Grandmere's. The gites are ideal for giving 2 families a holiday together, but also maintaining privacy if wanted!

Le Jardin is on one floor ( but not on one level). A newly modernised bathroom, fully fitted kitchen/sitting room. Use of a washing machine is available, located in the utility room of the main house, which has separate access.

2 large bedrooms, both with room to sit aswell as sleep. One a double and the other a twin, this also has a cot and could also have extra beds if required.

Both rooms have french doors opening on to the garden terrace just by the swimming pool.A further shaded terrace, wonderful for sitting under when the sun is just too hot! is just around the corner. See the new pictures of this area

A large garden ( almost 1 acre ) with swings, a boule court, plus tables and chairs scattered around the garden under trees, to enjoy the wonderful rural views and also to take shade.

Le Pinier is approximately 2 kilometres from a small village, which has an extremely good restaurant. The village now has a baguette machine.

Le Jardin is one of 2 gites sharing the facilities with the main house. The area is very rural, Le Pinier being 1 of 5 houses in a small hamlet.

Our rural location offers an extensive network of cycle/walking tracks. There are also several inland lakeside "beaches" close by in the Mervent forest. This area offers wonderful forest walks together with a Zoo and Forest Adventure Park.

For more organised activites, Puy du Fou recently voted No. 1 theme park in the World!... and Futuroscope are about 75 minutes away, both are well worth a visit.

The nearest coast is just over an hour away... we particularly like Les Conches...miles of unspoilt sand ..and even a part where Murphy can come with us !... for a seaside town we visit Chatillion Plage ...it even sports a free library on the beach!... super as it has many restaurants to choose from if you want a leisurely lunch before a stroll along the promenade or the lovely soft sand ...it is just south of La Rochelle

The Ile de Re often described as " Paris by the Sea " is also near La Rochelle .... and has miles of very flat cycle ways ...altogether a lovely way to see the island ...definitely worth a visit if you want to explore

" Green Venise " is about 40 minutes away ...having waterways and cycle paths ... so if you fancy a " punt " with shade on a hot day this is the area to visit

If old towns and architecture interest you ... do take a look at Niort, Parthenay ... and Richelieu on the way up to the Loire ...which is only 2 hours away ... giving lots of Chateaux and of course more flat cycle paths !

I am happy to advise on cycling in our area ...and more than happy to accompany you ....I love cycling ..and the paths here are seriously quiet .... but with forest close by ...they are not flat !

Golf courses are available about 40 minutes away...o
