Perfect property in stunning grounds.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful holiday home which lives up to the online information provided. It is spacious, comfortable, immaculately clean, has a lovely pool area and many activities to keep the children amused and parents happy, the whole family are catered for at this property and nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Many pretty villages surround the accommodation and Moncoutant was a short walk away if we needed to stock up on essentials. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and did not want to leave. We would not hesitate to recommend this holiday home and will definitely return.

Lovely house, grounds and facilities for a family holiday. The property sits on the side of a main road which was extremely noisy at the time of our stay. That was the only disappointment. The property owners are extremely friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback, this was a lovely family who were an absolute pleasure. Unfortunately during their stay at the proeprty the pavement outside of the property was being dug up due to new electric and telephone cables being laid. This was unfortunate timings over which we had no control.

less than 2km from the large village of Moncoutant which has a several bars, restaurants, large supermarket, post office, Pharmacy, Boulangerie, banks, cafes and hairdressers. A new kebab restaurant opened this week (09 May 2015) it is very very good also a new pizza restaurant both also do take aways and are only 10 minutes walk from the property.

There is a new cycle track which goes from the property into Moncoutant.

The nearest town of Bressuire is 10 minutes drive away with numerous restaurants, shops and supermarkets, discos and bars. There is also an ancient Chateau and a newer Chateau sitting side by side - both are set in a park with a children's play area and lovely walks along the river.

The medieval town of Parthenay with its many attractions is 30 minutes drive away.

The coastline of the Charente Maritime - La Rochelle or Vendee La Tranche sur Mer, La Faute Sur Mer, Les Sables D'Olonne on the Atlantic Coast are 75 mins

Puy du Fou is France's top theme park and is definitely worth a visit. Furturoscope is another them park with lots of futuristic rides to be had.

The Marais Poiteivin (Little Venice) is a short drive away with its winding canals and waterways -you can hire a boat for the day and explore.

Mervent forest is another great place to visit, ideal for outdoor sports, picnics, there is an Adventure park here and children's play park and a zoo.

Outdoor activities are in abundance - there is something for everyone.

The Deux-Sevres region has countless places of interest to suit everyone and is steeped in history, the unspoilt landscapes and gently rolling hills shelter an outstanding heritiage with some of Europe's most imposing Romanesque churches, chateaux, museums. small roads lead to unexpected rivers, lakes, forests, historic towns, small villages with colorful markets and, during the summer months a range of festivals and events.

FISHING - A 5 minute drive from the property will take you to Pescalis which is renown for its great fishing lakes (among the top fishing lakes in Europe), in fact many International Fishing Tournaments are held here - you can purchase a day ticket or longer and there are many restaurants and cafes.

GOLF - There is a golf course at Bressuire, just 10 minutes drive (15 kilometres) New golf course has opened it has a 25 bay driving range a 6 hole 12 tee pitch and putt and a 9 hole 18 tee golf course. 18 hole will be finished by the end of the year 2015

Just down the road is an Adventure Forest with tree climbs and a Karting Circuit - something for everyone or you could simply relax and enjoy the pool in the tranquility of Maison Gaillard's grounds.

There are lots to see and do in and around Bressuire. The 56m renaissance tower of the church of Notre Dame rises high over the town and surrounding countryside. Originating from the 11th Century, the Chateau dominates the town and is an ideal venue for the many events throughout the year.

The first weekend in July is Historic Grand Prix time in Bressuire - a circuit is created in the middle of the Town and Cars from all over France and Europe meet to race for the Grand Trophy through the streets of Bressuire - the event takes place over the whole weekend and entry is free - cafes, bars and restaurants stay open to ensure you are fed and watered whilst you watch cars from yesteryear take part is this great event.
