Holiday Rental House
La Métairie Holiday Home was renovated by its current owners. It is now laid out as a comfortable 3 bedroom Holiday home, with large garden and fantastic pool area. It is set in the picturesque countryside of the Vendee in France and is surrounded by fields of sunflowers and corn in the summer months. An ideal location for country-lovers - with many quiet country lanes for walking and cycling along. The house would be suitable for guests with limited mobility, as there is a twin bedroom on the ground floor, as is the shower room and WC. The main bedroom - complete with four-poster double bed - is on the first floor, and the third bedroom leads off from this room and has a double bed. The pool is set in a renovated courtyard area, surrounded by stone walls and a great place to relax and ...La Métairie Holiday Home was renovated by its current owners.

The pool is set in a renovated courtyard area, surrounded by stone walls and a great place to relax and sunbathe. There is even a sheltered area for reading or sipping a glass of the local wine. The heated pool is 9m x 4.5m and is securely walled off for the security of your children. The house is set at the end of a quiet cul de sac, with no passing traffic and there is covered parking for 2 cars, plus secure storage for bikes. This Holiday home is set in the peaceful countryside of the Vendee - less than a 30 minute drive from the Marais Poitevin canal network or the forest at Mervent. The medieval village of Vouvant, with its artist colony is also nearby. The main tourist attraction of this area is the Puy du Fou Theme Park - with its Gladiators, Vikings and Musketeers - not to be missed! The beaches of the Southern Vendee are less than an hour away and there is a wide choice - for body boarding, surfing, kite flying and just relaxing whilst building sand castles. This is a great locations for family holidays - whether you want to escape from it all with quiet walks through the countryside, or enjoy the hustle and bustle of the seaside towns of La Rochelle and La Tranche sur Mer.

About the neighbourhood
La Métairie Holiday Home is set in the small Hamlet of La Jousselinière, only a short drive from the town of Sainte Hermine which has many shops, bakeries, restaurants, market, and summer Entertainment. Many of the nearby villages have their own restaurants and bars - some with great views over the Lake at Mervent or in the medieval cité of Vouvant. The area is great for cycling and walking, and has many country lanes nearby to explore. You can even buy a day-pass to fish in some of the local lakes. The towns by the coast all have great restaurants serving freshly caught seafood and fish.
Getting around
A car is essential for your visit to Gite La Metairie as it is located in a small hamlet with the closest shops and restaurants around a 10 minute drive away. There is little public transport.
