Villa 'Les Roches' - With Private Heated Pool

House in Pays de la Loire
0/5 ( 0 Reviews)

Description

Les Roches is a traditional village house which has been fully renovated and refurbished to a high standard. It is situated in a village - with bar, boulangerie, shop and post office - in the south Vendée between the towns of Fontenay le Comte and Lucon.

The gite has a large fully enclosed garden which borders fields to the rear. There is play area and trampoline for children, as well as a lovely heated swimming pool which is fenced for safety.

The inside of the property is light and spacious, with a large open plan living area giving on to the kitchen. Wide patio doors open fully to the terrace to give a seamless flow between the kitchen and the extensive terrace.

The kitchen is fully equipped with induction hob, oven, fridge / freezer, dishwasher and all the pans & utensils necessary to create delicious meals from local ingredients. A washing machine and tumble drier are provided.

There are five comfortable bedrooms in the property. Downstairs there are three bedrooms (two king sized rooms - one of which is en suite - and a triple room). Also downstairs is a large, family, bathroom.

Two further bedrooms are upstairs - one double and one room that can be arranged as a triple or as a king sized bed plus a single. This room also has a separate nursery area. Both the upstairs bedrooms are en-suite.

Babies and toddlers are well catered for with stair gates, high-chairs, cots, toys and games all provided. Buggies are available on request.

Outside, aside from the pool, there is a play area with trampoline and other toys. A BBQ is provided.

Nearby attractions include:

Puy du Fou

Twice voted by the theme park industry as being the best park in the world, the Puy du Fou is quite unique. The park revolves around six live shows or spectaculars that are dramatisations of historical or mythical events relating to the Vendée. The stage craft is exceptional and can justifiably be described as both world class and – in some instances – ground breaking. Away from the big shows, the rest of the park has plenty to interest the visitor. This is a “must do” for any holiday in the Vendée. Located about 65km from our gite in Les Epesses.

Beaches of the Vendée

The beaches of the South Vendée are a delight. For the most part they are sandy (though one honourable exception has a fine line in rock pools at low tide) and are very family friendly. Our favourites are:

La Faute sur Mer – the closest beach at about 40km. La Faute is a low-rise, relaxed, small, resort town. Access to the beach is via paths of a couple of hundred metres length over the dunes. The sandy beach here is particularly fine. During the summer period the bathing is supervised on some stretches. La Faute is a nice town and has some good restaurants. We can recommend La Grand’ Voile on Avenue de la Plage.
Les Conches – is, overall, our favourite beach. Also sandy, this is a very gently sloping beach that is enormous when the tide is out and where the sea stays shallow for quite some distance. There is not a lot in the way of commerce here; just a few stalls selling drinks, snacks and ice cream. This is a good surf beach and there are two surf schools here. We recommend Manu Surf. About 55km drive.
St Vincent sur Jard – This is the most distant of our favoured beaches at around 60km. The beach here is notable for two features: firstly, there are lots of interesting rock pools to muck about in; secondly, the beach is over looked by the last home of the French statesman, Georges Clemenceau. It is a surprisingly modest house for a man widely held to be the “father of victory” in the First World War. The house is as Clemenceau left it at the time of his death in 1929. The gardens here were designed by his friend, the famous impressionist, Claude Monet.

Indian Forest Adventure Park / O’Gliss Water Park

Located adjacent to one another near the village of Moutiers les Mauxfaits (about 45km distant), Indian Forest and O’Gliss provide activity packed days. The Indian Forest adventure park centres around a series of high rope pathways (assault courses, really) slung through the tree tops. There is a range of difficulties available ranging from ‘child’s play’ to ‘downright reckless.’ Also in the park can be found bungie jumps, go karts and water slides.
Water slides (and flumes and rapids a lots of other aquatic lunacy) attain another level in the neighbouring O’Gliss water park. This is the third largest of its kind in France and is open June, July & August.

La Rochelle

The city of La Rochelle is amongst the most visited in France. It is an elegant sort of place with lots of high end shops and many good restaurants. The aquarium – one of Europe’s largest – is excellent, and is most certainly worth a trip to La Rochelle (about 45 km distant) all by itself, but the real charm of the place can be found in just strolling around soaking up the ambiance. The area around the old port is particularly pleasant. La Rochelle has hundreds of restaurants and competition generally keeps quality quite high. Our favoured eateries are Bar André (a La Rochelle institution) at 5 rue St Jean du Perot and Le Boute en Train (classic French) at 7 rue des Bonnes Femmes.

Mervent Forest

Located about 15km away, the forest of Mervent extends over 12000 acres. At its heart is a huge lake that acts as a reservoir for the area. Aside from providing innumerable routes for shady walks, the forest is home to a number of other attractions, including the activity park at Pierre Brune (very good for children of all ages), a rather good small zoo and a water sports centre (from which canoes & kayaks can be hired). The forest also has marked tracks for mountain bikes. There are a couple of restaurants in the forest – we would recommend the Mangoustan in Mervent village for a meal with children.

Venise Verte

Venise Verte (Green Venice) refers to a network of canals and dykes dug hundreds of years ago to drain the Poitou marshes. These days, the Venise Verte provides a haven for wildlife and is an area of gentle beauty. The best way to experience the area is by boat and these can be hired at a number of locations (for example Maillezais – where can be seen the remains of a magnificent abbey – and Damvix). For lunch, La Recré (a pizzeria / creperie in a converted school) in Damvix provides a perfect family dining option.
