About the property

House in Reaumur, Nr. Pouzauges, Vendee, Pays de la Loire, France - Village Centre, All Facilities On Hand. Ideally Situated For Many Tourist Facilities And Beaches

Our lovely village house is newly on the rental market. Built at the turn of the last century it is a classic double aspect French village house with a tall slate roof and high ceilings and windows which flood the house with light. The are still lots of original features and we are delighted to offer it as an ideal family accommodation with a totally private courtyard garden and heated pool. The house has three bedrooms, one double and two twin rooms. Downstairs there is a comfortable lounge with English satellite TV and Wi-F throughout the house. The dining room has an inset wood burning fireplace and the kitchen is fully equipped with a seperate scullery area with washing machine and dishwasher. It is set right in the middle of the village which is ideally located in the southern vendee within short distance of many fantastic family attractions. Reaumur is a very pretty village set in the rolling hills of the Vendee 'bocage' with no less than two chateaux, a 12th century church and a manor house now converted to a small, but interesting Science Musuem. Within 100 metres of the house there is a boulangerie, a small grocery store, a friendly bar with terrace and a restaurant. for the young (and the young at heart) there is a nightclub complex within walking distance catering for all ages. The world famous family theme park 'Puy du Fou' is only 30 minutes away and there are dozens of other tourist facilities in the area as well as the Atlantic coast nearby.

About The Owner

Before we had kids we came to this area several times on motorbiking trips and just loved the whole area - the people, the scenery, the lifestyle, the weather. When our children arrived we found it to be a perfect place to holiday as it really is, in our opinion, probably the best family destination in Europe. It was on one of those holidays that we decided to look at some properties and in a whirlwind of excitement (and a few glasses of wine!) we suddenly had found our dream home and made the big decision to move here lock stock. We converted an old stables block behind the house into a gite and have found that we really enjoy it - meeting new people all the time and providing them with the kind of quality accommodation and facilities that they demand and deserve from their annual break.

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why The Owner chose Montournais

Ten years on and we saw the house in Reaumur and fell in love with it, it is a classic French townhouse. Tall ceilings and windows, light, bright and airy and fabulous features and within a short stroll of a boulangerie, small grocery, friendly bar and restaurant - everything on your doorstep! The courtyard garden is totally private with sun all day and perfect for a pool and sun trap terrace and barbecue area.

And if you do decide to stray out you have, within ten minutes, three larger and attractive country towns with all the facilities you would ever need.

Fifteen minutes away from the world famous Puy du Fou and surrounded by the plethora of family attractions that makes the Vendee one of the prime tourist locations in France, and of course, less than an hour from the beaches..

What makes this house unique

The house is right in the centre of a very pretty Vendee village, within 100 metres from all the local shops and bar/restaurant etc. There's even a night club complex on the outskirts if you feel energetic enough! The house is only a 30 minute drive from the famous, highly recommended family theme park Puy du Fou.

It is an easy drive from the ferry ports and less than an hour to the Atlantic beaches but yet is remote and rural enough to not feel in any way touristy.

The house itself is elegant and tastefully decorated but still modern and comfortable with all the usual facilities you would expect. Whether you want

a chilled out holiday staying in and enjoying the pool and the house or would like to use the house as a base for exploring and enjoying the many facilities on your doorstep, you will find Reaumur an ideal location for your holiday.

Brilliant holiday

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house and a warm welcome from our excellent hosts, Brian and Jane. The weather was fantastic and hot, the saltwater pool being a life-saver. And it was so great to smell the sea in the pool rather than chlorine. The barbecue worked hard during our stay. The house itself is charming, well-appointed and decorated. The local boulangerie has a selection of breads and 'fancies', while the SuperU and Lidl at Pouzauges sell just about everything we needed.

Out and about, Fontenay-le-Comte is lovely, with a wide boulevard and river walk. Having horse-mad daughters, the Haras de Vendee in La Roche sur Yon was a must, and the horse riding demonstrations were very good. The town centre, with its mechanical animals and birds is also worth seeing. The Oriental Garden at Maulevrier was a great visit, with a surprise round every corner. A day at the beach at La Tranche sur Mer made a pleasant change, but look out for the rocks off-shore.

All-in-all a brilliant holiday!

Maison très appréciable mais environnement bruyant

  • 3 of 5

La maison est grande. Elle dispose de nombreuses pièces de taille confortable et tout est fait pour apporter un maximum de confort aux vacanciers. La piscine est un plus mais sa taille réduite fait qu'on s'en lasse assez vite.

Le problème de cette maison, c'est qu'elle est située en bordure d'une route très fréquentée la journée et suffisamment fréquentée la nuit pour troubler le sommeil dès cinq heures du matin. Une seule chambre dispose du double vitrage mais pas le reste de la maison. Ce qui fait qu'au bout d'une semaine, nous étions plutôt heureux de retrouver les nuits calmes de notre propre maison. Cette semaine de vacances n'a pas vraiment été reposante à cause de cela. Le prix assez élevé de la location peut se justifier par la taille de la maison mais pas par la piscine et encore moins par le bruit. Pour résumer, à ce prix-là, nous avons été plutôt déçus. La semaine de rêve à laquelle nous nous attendions par la lecture du descriptif ne s'est pas présentée comme telle.
