The house is situated in the beautiful peaceful Southern Vendeen countryside overlooking the River Vendee. The area is a mix of sunflower fields, rolling hills with pretty limestone villages tucked away in river valleys; very reminiscent of the Cotswolds apart from the weather - the South of the Vendée benefits from a micro climate, giving the region a level of summer sunshine bettered in France only by the Côte d’Azur
The Forest of Mervent – a vast nature lovers paradise of wooded valleys and lakes perfect for cycling & walking, sailing and canoeing with pony trekking also available
Vouvant, a medieval town, one of the most beautiful villages in France with its Medieval ramparts, cobbled lanes and pretty houses all contributing to the picture postcard setting.
The world renown 'Puy du Fou' theme park is less than an hours drive from the house and well worth a visit.
