Grandmere's in Vendée, a gite in Vendée: Grandmere's exterior

Lovely gite part of old farmhouse with gardens, pool and rural views

A traditional 2 storey cottage added to a 300yr old farmhouse in 1950's. Grandmere's offers very spacious accommodation. A large dining kitchen opening on to the terrace and also connecting to the sitting room with 3 sofas, 1 of which can be made into a comfortable additional bed if needed.

The bathroom and separate toilet are located on the ground floor, 2 bedrooms are located on the first floor, 1 a double, which could accommodate additional beds if required. The other a twin room, could also have extra beds if needed...both have lovely views over rolling countryside and the large garden.

Grandmere's shares the garden and pool with the other gite Le Jardin, we find that renting the 2 gites together is a super way to have a "together holiday" with space! The garden has a boules park and children's swings and also a barn games room for table tennis and table football.

The Vendee is known for warm dry summers, long days which can be fairly hot. So why not relax by our pool, or visit Vouvant, only 15 km away, a very pretty moated village. Then on to the Mervent Forest also very close by, which also has “lakeside beaches “by the river together with sailing and other watersports facilities. There is also an adventure playpark, and of course lots of walks in the forest!

Close by are the towns of Fontenay le Comte and Niort ..while La Rochelle and the Ile de Re ..( described as Paris by the Sea) are just over an hour away
For the more energetic, the extensive Vendee cycle tracks start right
outside our gate! and of course we have hosted the " Tour de France " locally ... or of course you could go to Ile de Re with miles of flat cycling paths!

If gentle family cycling is more your style then visit the Marais where bikes can be hired ...or perhaps you would like to " punt " in one of the many boats available at Coulon, Arcais, Damvix .... or visit the Abbey at Maillezais ...where you can also punt ... this is all in the area known as " Green Venise "
Not far away are Thouars, Parthenay, Poitiers and only 2 hours south of the Loire ...more flat cycling!

For Chateau to visit in our area ...why not try La Chabotterie at Saint Sulpice Le Verdon ...

We also have the coast about 75minutes away.

The well known attractions of Puy du Fou which has recently been voted No. 1 theme park in the World ! and of course Futuroscope are also only just over an hour away.

All linen is provided including towels for the pool. Use of a washing machine is available in the utility room of the main house, which has access from the house terrace. Use of a freezer is also available in the games room.

We offer babysitting, should you need this facility. Also we can taxi you to our local village extremely good restaurant, it is actually walking distance for those who want to try it! And very child friendly!

We hope to make our guests feel this is their home during their stay. So please feel free to let us know if you have any queries
