About the property

Gite in Saint Michel le Cloucq, near Fontenay le Comte, Vendee - Cottage in a Peaceful Village

The cottage is situated in the quiet and hilly village of Saint Michel le Cloucq, above fontenay le comte, in a peaceful street. The village is on the edge of the forest with many places for walking and cycling. The Vendee apart from its beauty, is filled with history and fine architecture, notably the abbaye de Maillezais and the abbaye royale in Nieul. Niort (30 kms), set on the river sèvre, has a castle built by Henry Plantagenet and Richard the lionheart. Few kilometers away there is le marais poitevin, also known as the green venice, with its green canals for idyllic boating and fishing. The great sandy beaches of the atlantic coast are about 50 kms away and you can easily get to the lovely islands of Ré, Aix or Oleron just off the coast. Only 50 km from the renowned sailing part and beautiful city of La Rochelle. Approx an hour away is Futuroscope, the science and technology theme park near poitiers and the Puy du Fou historic theme park with its day attractions.

A traditional French village house, beautifully restored and extremely comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This gite is to be recommended to all discerning gite holiday makers. Owned and run by a daughter and her mother who have spared nothing in making the old traditional village house into an extremely comfortable and well appointed place to stay. They were welcoming and generous with a bottle of wine, bread and well stocked fridge to get us going. Large garden equipped with tables, chairs, sun umbrella, bar-b-queue everything anyone could want. Very interesting places to see in the locality and places to eat. All in all a super place.

beautiful property in pretty, peaceful location, ideal for exploring Vendee and the Marais Poitevin.

  • 5 of 5

An outstanding property in a quiet village location. Within easy reach of Fontenay-le-compte, Niort, Parthenay, La Rochelle, the Marais Poitevin and the coast beyond.

We were made welcome by Chantal and her mother Suzanne, who live next door, the 2 houses having been in their family for many years.The gite has recently been renovated and modernised to a very high standard, and is a credit to them.

Well appointed and comfortable (and refreshing cool inside on a hot day) we have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Chantal voiced some concern, about the English not continuing to holiday in France following our 'Brexit' vote, but i think that whilst properties of this quality are available she need have no fears. Michael and Vivienne Wright.
