We would like to share this place of tranquility, surrounded by this great Nature. Myriam and Bruno
Myriam Hilaire purchased this cottage in 2015
The property is a beautiful place, with its meadows, woods and canals. The local French people are friendly. The area has its own microclimate and the second part is the sunniest of France and although we are a very quiet place, there are a host of places to visit nearby. It is easy to reach from England, with 1 hour 10 minutes from London to La Rochelle (40) minutes drive). Other major airports such as Nantes or Poitiers are within an hour or so away. There is also a good link from the Eurotunnel to La Rochelle train station and there is a selection of different driving distance to ports.
It is the most tranquil setting in the Vendee with a beautiful 10x5 Roman style swimming pool, surrounded by woods and meadows and criss-crossed by waterways.
There are great places to visit nearby, such as the Atlantic coast, La Rochelle, Ile de Re, the forest of Mervant and the Green Venice area.
We have lots of facilities for guests, such as bikes, table tennis, darts, badminton, boules, fishing, a boat to take on the canal and even a rowing machine for those who don't like the water.
Changeover day is Saturday during the busy season. More flexibility is available out of season. Arrivals should be from 4pm - 8pm (later times on agreement with owners) and departure by 10am.
Notes on prices:
Prices are for the property per week in UK Pounds.

A lovely gite in a quiet backwater set amongst farmland, fields and waterways. We had a peaceful 2 weeks at Paddy & Harry's place. Genial hosts with a light touch of hospitality - there when needed and always willing to help when required with directions, translations and even restaurant bookings!
We used Nalliers as our base and visited Puy Du Fou - an absolute MUST see, La Grand Defi at St Juliens Des Landes and the port town and amazing Aquarium at La Rochelle, boating at Coulon and cycling on Ile De Re and to Fontenay-le-Comte. All within an hour's drive.
If you want a peaceful gite, in an unspoilt location complete with lovely pool and table tennis, boule, badminton, bikes, football, volleyball and even darts then look no further.
Paddy & Harry - thank you again for a terrific stay.
Where do I start? Our first visit to the Vendee but it won?t be our last and if the lovely Paddy and Harry will have us then La Petite Venise Verte will be our home away from home. Sunshine, the pool, fishing for frogs, Sapphire, the pool, the kittens, Puy de Fou, the pool, La Rochelle on a beautiful warm evening, the pool, Nantes to ride an elephant, beaches, the Auberge de la Riviere (A MUST) and the pool - who could ask for more. Perfect hosts, Paddy and Harry. Thank you both for an amazing Vendee vacation! If we don't see you again soon, then the countless people who we have raved to about you will be forming a queue. Beautiful location, lovely property, great hosts. A wonderful holiday.
