Holiday Rental House
Old stone farmhouse with lots of space inside and out, which has been tastefully restored to be both traditional and comfortable. The rooms are big with lots of light and the environment is child friendly. There's a sun-trap terrace on the South East side, and several large outdoor tables for dining al fresco. We have a bespoke stone barbecue, and a large children's sand pit to the side of the lawn where you can play family games such as Badminton or Boules. There is no other accommodation on site so you have privacy and sole use of the swimming pool which has views, is fenced with a lockable gate, and runs on a salt-water system which is much nicer for eyes and skin than old style chlorine pools.

The house was even better than it looked in the photos, and the gardens were glorious. We were welcomed by Jean, who with his wife Veronique manages the house for the owner. Any help we needed during the week was quickly provided, and the owner...More

About the neighbourhood
From our meadow you can see the Donjon at Bazoges en Pareds 3kms away. It is a lovely medieval remnant with medieval garden and local life museum attached. The Auberge next door is a good local restaurant, and there are small shops and other amenities in the village. There are lots of walks marked out in the woods between us and La Caillere, and cycle routes too. Fontenay le Comte, 25 mins away, is the old capital of the area and has a traditional market on Saturdays. Nearby is the ancient Mervent-Vouvant forest which is lovely for walks horseriding (at Ripauds stables near VouvantVouvant itself is well worth visiting - a very pretty town on a bend in the river with a tower supposedly built by the fairy Melusine in one night. The Pic Vert nearby is a great place for Galettes and a salad, i...
