About the property

Cottage in La Seurie, Nr. Mouilleron Saint Germain and La Chataigneraie, Vendee

La Seurie is situated approximately 1km from Mouilleron Saint Germain (formerly Mouilleron en Pareds), a small peaceful town with a number of shops, including a supermarket, baker/patisserie, restaurants, a bar , chemist and a banks. At present there are two Restaurants - La Table Du Centre and The Galopin both are both good standard rural restaurants. In addition we have two Bar's; Bar Clemenceau run by a young English couple which serves light lunches and food in the evening and Bar Le Tigre which is a typical Bar Tabac. A good range for the size of town.

Set in the picturesque Vendee countryside merely an hours drive from beautiful sandy beaches. Nearest airports are Nantes, La Rochelle and Poitiers. Nearest Ports are St Malo, Caen and Cherbourg. The Vendee countryside it is an ideal base for exploring the area, the cottage has exposed beams and many original features. Two of the bedrooms have double beds and one has twin beds. Outside the cottage has its own parking and a private patio, equipped with a table, six chairs and a solid fuel BBQ. To the rear and above the cottage (it is situated on a slight gradient) is a large rough grassed garden with fruit trees.

About Bob hawkes

Having spent many years holidaying in France we decided to buy the cottage in 2005 - it was in good condition and habitable from the outset.

Over the years we have worked to make it more comfortable and continue to do so. We have been sharing the experiece with others for some years.

We live in a small village in Buckinghamshire and have three children all at whi have now flown the nest. Despite working on the cottage we have had some very enjoyable holidays in the area.

We hope you enjoy your stay. Cathy and Bob.

Bob hawkes purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Bob hawkes chose Mouilleron-en-Pareds

We bought this property in 2005 mainly for the location. It is in a small hamlet far from the madding crowd! At just 1km away Mouillerons en Pareds is the nearest place for drinks and meals out and we eat there regularly.

The surrounding countryside is beautiful and there are many recommendations for visits without spending a great deal of money eg Vouvant superb views and walks, Mervent take a rest in the lakeside bar whilst the children take to the pedalos.

Within 40 mins to an hour is the Coast line - in most places very much unspoilt.

However La Tranche sur Mer and La Faute sur Mer do offer more traditional lines of shops and restaurants, but in a very conservative French way.

As they say 'What's not to like?'

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is located at the foot of a hill below a line of windmills, they had seen better days but have been restored and the 'views from the top' are stunning and there are plenty of walks so no need to spend a week in the car.

We often walk into town via the Millers path, a 30 minutes scenic route which avoids arguments as to who should drive!

We are fortunate enough to have two friendly English people, resident in France, overseeing the property for us. Wendy and John will make sure that the house is ready for you and in the unlikely event of any problems will provide a swift resolution.

The cottage itself has a very large split level living area; at the lower level the lounge, intermediate the kitchen and stairs and upper a dining room with patio doors and electric shutters.

Lovely cottage, clean and tidy.

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice week in France, especially the 2 day visit to Pay du Fou. The cottage was clean and well looked after, lots of space, comfy beds. The only comment we would make is that some of the information in the booklet provided is out of date, twice we went to French markets that were no longer on the days stated. Some other information provided was also incorrect, i.e rubbish collection, no bike. No leaflets or information from other visitors available, we always like to read recommendations from others. However the cottage was good value for money, the information and communication by the owners was excellent prior to the visit how to find the property, key, contacts during our stay etc and we enjoyed a peaceful week away.
