Lovely 3 Bedroom House In Rural Location withPrivate Heated Swimming Pool



Updated: 07-Apr-2016
House in La Châtaigneraie in a small hamlet near Vouvant, La Rochelle, La Sable

This lovely house is set in a small hamlet with three double bedrooms.. There is a separate main bathroom with shower, bath and toilet and a further separate toilet upstairs. It has a modern kitchen, central heating and a wood burner. The large garden is landscaped with a large fish pond, mature gardens as well as a private partially enclosed decked 10 x 5m swimming pool heated all season to 27+ C with gas BBQ, sun loungers and 6 seater dinning table. Local shops, bars and restaurants are nearby with some of the Vendee's best beaches, La Tranch, La Rochelle, La Sable are just an hour away. Mervent - 20 minutes away has a large forest and reservoir and Puy du Fou is approx 45 minutes north and provides a great day out for all the family. The beaches of the Vendee are safe and the island of Ile de Re is definitely worth a visit.

Guestbook comments from the manager

having spent 2 weeks in what can only be called PARADISE. The gite was spacious clean and well equiped. The garden and pool area far exceded our expectations and it was so pleasant to spend time there.The pool had terracing and beautiful suroundings sun shades bbq and area for eating. and was well maintaine by the owners We thank Bob and Maria for allowing us to share PARADISE and who where friendly and welcoming during our stay. Sue John Becky Ali Chayse & Vegas.

Having travelled to a few places in France, this is by far the best property we have stayed at in what can only be described as a sensational garden. Having two children the most important thing is they have enough to occupy them during the day the garden is a children PARADISE with an excellent pool and plenty of room to let off steam Bob and Maria where excellent hosts Hope to return at some point in the future Julie Steve Dot Daniel Charlotte

Brilliant house and fantastic pool

  • 4 of 5

The couple that showed us around the house and garden were lovely, the house was brilliant for us. Good sized bedrooms and a huge garden for the kids to play in, they also loved the pool and bouncing around on the trampoline.

From the Owner

We enjoy living here as we have some lovely scenery and that we live within easy reach of several small towns with shops and supermarkets and there are two adventure play areas for children of all ages. Also there is very large forest in Mervent for walks and a lake, thats within a short drive where you can also do boating and Park Pierre Brunel is an adventure play ground for ages.
