Fossais Payre, Nr Vouvant, Vendee, - Peaceful Location, Nr Mervent Forest
Ideal for Puy du Fou
Voted the world’s best park in Orlando in 2014, the Puy du Fou features a multitude of spectacular shows, adventures for the whole family and the 2015 great new show: The Lovers of Verdun.
La Fosse is a small hamlet just outside the charming village of Foussais Payre. The Gite is a converted and modernised agricultural home sleeping 7 people, but benefiting from an additional double sofa bed and travel cot. The tranquil setting gives access to excellent country walks with off road footpaths running to the nearest village of Foussais just 1 mile away. The fabulous Mervent forest is just 5 minutes by car or you may prefer to take advantage of your own private pool with views across open countryside. You will be 50 minutes from either La Rochelle or the Atlantic Coast, but attractions such as Futuroscope or Puy de Fou are all within reach. If you are craving the hustle and bustle of a lively nightspot then La Fosse is not the place for you, but if you enjoy sitting out into the night with a glass of wine and watching the stars then you won’t be disappointed.
About the Owner
I am a full time art teacher from Backwell near Bristol, my wife is a state dietitian. We have three children and when they were young we spent our whole summers at La Fosse and really wish we still could. We are not professional landlords but family people willing to share our home in a fabulous part of France. The people we have looking after the property are friends rather than employees and would hope that you could also consider them the same way.

Why Mark chose Vendee
We bought this property on a whim because we loved the area and the people. We have managed to retain it for the same reason..
What makes this cottage unique
We enjoy a totally peaceful location in a really natural rural environment.
