Sleeps 5 plus a cot. Le Jardin is single storey, but not all on one level.
The living area is open plan and opens on to a large covered 3 metre square terrace.
The 2 bedrooms are very large and each has a sitting area aswell.
The twin room has happily accommodated 4 children! The bedrooms open on to a terrace in front of the swimming pool.
Set in almost an acre of garden, we have 2 gites with a heated pool and terrace.Ideal for 2 family holiday ...lots of space... but equally totally safe for small children. We are 2 kilometres out of the village which has a small shop, boulangerie and a very good child friendly restaurant ..which also does " take away food " The town of La Chataigneraie is only 10 minutes away and has 3 supermarkets.
After busy working lives in the UK Jane and Ian " retired " to France ...we love the quiet pace of French life ....and hope to offer and share that experience with our gite guests.
Our house is part of Le Pinier, and as the garden and grounds are almost an acre, there is plenty of space for us all. In fact the gites are a brilliant way for 2 families wanting a holiday together and yet maintaining their own space too!
The best of both worlds!
JANE GAWN purchased this cottage in 2008
We were attracted to this part of the Vendee after staying at the coast and passing through the Mervent Forest on our way back to the ferry. Once found, we were totally sold...and came looking for a house and gites in the region of Vouvant ... and here we are 7 years on ...and about to embark on our 6th season!... but for the 1st time with Owners Direct.
We are just 15 minutes from Vouvant and the Mervent Forest and only an hour and a quarter from the coast ...and we are still finding different lovely beaches ...only last week we found some super ones at Jard sur Mer.
We are just 5 minutes in the car from our village...
We are very rural... and no apologises for that... wonderful views and total tranquility ...and the Vendee cycle routes start at the bottom of our lane.
I am a very keen cyclist ...and always happy to advise on routes .... and always happy to accompany you locally on the cycle routes and in the Mervent Forest.
We offer a meal on arrival ...we have found it is a wonderful way for us all to meet ...all we ask in return is a donation to a local charity we support.
Happy to discuss the rate for smaller groups of people .....!!
Ian, Jane & Murphy ( the small dog ! ) are great at being welcoming without ever being intrusive. Their generosity and thoughtfulness meant we felt like special guests. The gite has spacious bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and cosy living areas. We were worried our children of 4 and 6 wouldn't have enough to do - but these fears were utterly unfounded!
The gite was "home from home " comfortable, cosy and had everything you could need. The personal touches made it even more special. The owners make a very memorable and perfect holiday gite a more special place. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the gite.
They were certainly unlike any previous owners of gites we have encountered before. We have been holidaying in France for the last 12 years and have never felt so at home.
The whole experience was delightful and relaxing, their warm friendship, fantastic food and the location made our holiday very special indeed. A well furnished and very well equipped gite.
We ask for a 25% deposit, with the balance due 8 weeks before arrival.
