Built in a traditional Vendeene style, Les Peupliers is situated in the unspoilt hamlet of La Baffardiere, which forms part of a protected area of outstanding natural beauty, within the River Yon Nature Reserve. The property sits in a quiet lane with no through traffic, from where there are many walks and cycle rides through wooded lanes and paths down to the River yon. The pretty village of Le Champs St Pere is only a short drive or bike ride away, where you will find a supermarket with petrol station, pharmacy, bakery, bar and restaurant and a market in the village square in Thursday mornings. 20 minutes to the North of Le Champs St Pere is the thriving university town of La Roche Sur Yon, and equidistant to the South is the historic, cathedral town of Lucon. The beautiful city of La Rochelle and exclusive Ile de Re are under 1 hour away.

About J Perry
We are an English family with 3 children.
Why J Perry chose Le Champ-St-Père
We chose to buy a holiday home in this area because we love the combination of peaceful, unspoiled countryside alongside miles of beautiful uncrowded beaches. It's the perfect place to relax, but we also like being able to dip into the more 'touristy' areas when the fancy takes us! The villa is where we spend most of our holiday time and so is furnished and equipped to a very high standard.
Pool / Spa
Julie’s house, Les Peupliers, is just perfect for a week of complete relaxation and comfort. The house itself has absolutely everything you need and is clearly incredibly well looked after -
We had everything we needed for the perfect stay and the welcome pack meant that the unwinding started straight away on our first night.
The heated pool was divine and so incredibly private and peaceful with loads of recliners, a full set of tables and chairs and a sweet little drinks area if you need a moment of shade.
We loved the little terrace in the private garden at the front of the house too where we took most of our meals - it was so beautiful and relaxing there that we could barely tear ourselves away from the villa but we were glad we did and we had some fantastic days on the nearby beaches - which have the softest finest sand by the way - and a fabulous day cycling on the Il de Re which was one of the week’s highlights.
There are so many other places we could have visited but we loved being at the villa so much we had to leave some for a return visit. September was a fantastic time to visit weather wise too - still beautifully warm and blue skies all the way. All in all a perfect little slice of French heaven.
Thanks Julie and the Les Peupliers team for the perfect holiday xxx
Thank you for the fab review, so glad you enjoyed your stay at Les Peupliers.
Beautiful house and pool, great holiday.
We had a fantastic holiday at Les Peupliers, thank you Julie. The house is immaculate and very nicely furnished. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. The heated pool was great and very private, a real sun trap! The village is really peaceful so sitting out at night under the stars listening was lovely. We'll definitely be back!!
Great to hear you enjoyed your stay and thanks for taking the time to write a review:)
Lovely Gite in a quiet area but easy access to facilities
My wife, daughter, son in law and granddaughter all stayed here. it was perfect for us with the pool. Some early minor hiccups were quickly resolved by the Gite manager Natalie. The weather was superb and we only had rain once overnight with an associated thunderstorm.
The local village has a supermarket with petrol as needed. Beaches are about 20 - 30 minutes away and at this time of the year were very quiet.
we used the local Pizza take waway and a vcery good Auberge not far away on more than one occsion. La Rochelle is about an hors drive but well worth the drive.
the table tennis table was well used as was the BBQ and sweimming pool.
Thank you for the lovely review Stephen
Beautiful villa and area.
Thank you Alan
Our family had an amazing time at Les Peupliers. Accommodation spot on and very clean. We all loved the private pool especially the grandchildren. Very quiet and relaxing holiday. Not a lot going on in Le Champ Saint Pere. Definitely a car journey to anywhere. Overall though we loved it.
Great to hear you enjoyed your stay Karen..!
Perfect villa, wonderful location
This was our third visit to this little peace of heaven! Fabulous villa, comfortable, spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. The location is wonderfully peaceful and the pool area is the perfect place to sunbathe and swim. We ventured out to the wonderful beach at Le Terrier and also visited Les Sables d'Olonne where there are lots of lovely restaurants, cafes and shops. I'm sure we'll be back for a fourth visit! Thank you.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review...hope to see you again soon!
In this area we are spoiled for choice when it comes to beaches. Our nearest beach is Longeville, which is approximately 20 minutes drive from the villa, is great for water sports and very safe for young children. Beautiful, unspoilt beaches also at Bourgenay, La Tranche-sur-mer, Les Sables and many others. Our favourite is 'La Terrier', which is part of the stretch at La Tranche and has a fantastic surfing beach, great beach bars, water sports and is never too crowded.
Both the airports at La Rochelle (45 minutes) and Nantes (1 hour), are well serviced with flights from the UK, namely by the budget airlines Ryanair and Flybe. The house can be reached by motorway in under 3 hours from St Malo (4 hours Caen), into which Brittany Ferries have frequent sailings from Portsmouth and others We can offer guests traveling with Brittany Ferries a discount. Please contact us for further information and advice about traveling to the Vendee.
Sailing, fishing, canoeing, horse riding and go-carting are all available locally and a Zip Wire Adventure Park is situated in the nearby Indian Forest. Also, the new O'Gliss Water Park, the 3rd biggest in France, is only 15 minutes drive away, situated next to the Indian Forest.
It is only a short walk from the villa down to the River Yon which also provides great fishing and cycling, with picnic areas and the local wine trail clearly signposted.
