Le Puy de Forge is a newly refurbished large 5 bedroom detached property with spacious living areas and is set in 1.75 acres of grounds and located in a rural farming hamlet surrounded by fields, historic villages and chateaux. There are gardens to both sides of the house and a large section of the rear garden is fully fenced for child safety. It is a perfect place for a relaxing and interesting holiday. Free unlimited wireless broadband available.
The property has downstairs 1 bedroom, a toilet, shower room, kitchen, lounge, dining room and upstairs 4 further bedrooms and a bathroom complete with WC and slipper bath.
Outside it has a lockable detached double garage and ample off road parking. There are gardens to the front, sides and fully enclosed rear garden with a large picnic table and large gazebo.
After a long trip the last thing you want is to arrive late with nothing to eat or drink and the shops have all closed. That's why we leave a welcome pack for our guests. It is only a carton of orange juice, a bottle of milk, a bottle of wine, tub of butter, a baguette and a small sliced loaf but when you arrive it is very welcome.
There is a small supermarket a 5 minute walk from the house in the local village of Le Boupere. Le Boupere has shops, cafe bars and a very good restaurant. A riding school is 5 minute walk in the other direction on the road to Les Herbiers.
Les Herbiers and Pouzauges are large towns within 10 kms with large shopping centres, swimming pools with water slides, cinemas, theatres, cafes and lots of good restaurants. For the more sporty types there is fishing, go karting, canoing, kayaking, archery and sports centres within easy striking distance.
The house is a 15 minutes drive of the Puy de Fou & only 1 hours drive from the Atlantic coast. It is 1 hours drive from Nantes and La Rochelle airports & a 3 hours drive from St Malo.
