Le Jardin in Vendée, a cottage in Vendée: Terrace

Cottagey gite, could sleep 5, all on ground level, terrace to pool

Le Pinier is a 300 year-old farmhouse currently with 1 gite: ‘Le Jardin’. New owners are in place for the 2019 season and are looking forward to welcoming visitors to their home.
Le Jardin is on one floor, but not on one level, having steps up and down to bedrooms, bathroom etc. The gite has been fully refurbished for this coming season.including a new bathroom and kitchen. The kitchen is fully fitted and includes a dishwasher: the sitting room and kitchen are combined. There is also a washing machine.
There are two large bedrooms, one a double and the other a twin. A travel cot is available as well as an extra bed if required: please let us know in advance if either are needed.
Both bedrooms have french doors opening on to the garden terrace just by the heated swimming pool. A further shaded terrace, wonderful for sitting under when the sun is just too hot! is just around the corner. WiFi is provided for the use of guests only.
A large garden (almost 1 acre) with swings and a boule court and seating, to enjoy the wonderful rural views and also to take shade.
Le Pinier is approximately 2 kilometres from a small village, which has a good restaurant. There is a well-stocked village store which has recently opened (owned by the Commune), where one can buy fresh bread, milk, cheese, etc
Le Jardin is within the grounds of the owners house.
The area is very rural, Le Pinier being 1 of 5 houses in a small hamlet. This rural location offers an extensive network of cycle/walking tracks. There are also several inland lakeside "beaches" close by in the Mervent forest. This area offers wonderful forest walks together with a Zoo and Forest Adventure Park.
For more organised activites, Puy du Fou recently voted No. 1 theme park in the World!... and Futuroscope are about 75 minutes away, both are well worth a visit.
The nearest coast is just over an hour away... Les Conches has miles of unspoilt sand. If you would like to visit a seaside town, try Chatillion Plage ...it even sports a free library on the beach! It has many restaurants to choose from if you want a leisurely lunch before a stroll along the promenade or the lovely soft sand ...it is just south of La Rochelle
The Ile de Re often described as " Paris by the Sea " is also near La Rochelle .... and has miles of very flat cycle ways ...altogether a lovely way to see the island ...definitely worth a visit if you want to explore.
‘Green Venise’ is about 40 minutes away ...having waterways and cycle paths ... so if you fancy a punt with shade on a hot day this is the area to visit.
If old towns and architecture interest you ... do take a look at Niort, Parthenay ... and Richelieu on the way up to the Loire ...which is only 2 hours away ... giving lots of Chateaux and of course more flat cycle paths!

We ask that guests do not arrive before 4pm or later than 9pm on the day of arrival, and vacate by 11am on the day of departure in order that we can fully service the gite between bookings.
