The 3rd bedroom is on the 1st floor with a large fitted wardrobe and a balcony with views over the Vendee river valley. It has an en-suite bathroom, fitted with a WC, vanity unit with double hand basins and a bath with shower.

There is a large patio to the rear of the house, extending around the pool which is bordered by shrubs with the garden beyond. There is a small patio to the front of the house, which is perfect for sitting and watching the sun set. We provide sun loungers, patio furniture and a BBQ.

The centre of town is a pleasant 10 minute stroll along the river. There are shops and several restaurants and bars, so you will have plenty of choice for eating and drinking. There is a Saturday morning market where you will find fresh produce and, of course, cheeses. There is a small supermarket (open on Sunday mornings) and there are 2 hypermarkets on the outskirts of town. There are two local vineyards each approximately 15 minutes away.

The heart of the old town is around the church, which makes for a lovely walk in the evening, as it is beautifully lit at night. There is also a museum, the Chateau Terre Neuve and the Parc Baron, which has a ruined fortress and affords wonderful views over the rooftops of the town.

Fontenay le Comte is approximately 40 minutes from La Rochelle on the coast, and within 20 minutes from both the Mervent forest and the Marais Poitevin. Futurescope is approximately 90 minutes drive away, as is Puy du Fou, which is a “must see” for children and adults alike. In addition to the coastal resorts there are many attractions in the area, from churches, abbeys and chateaux, to adventure parks, zoos and museums.
