Les Roches - From £630 (760€) to £2960 (3500€) per Week
Les Roches is a traditional village house located on a quite lane in a village in the South Vendée and enjoys an enviable combination of privacy and an excellent location near to both open country and all the village services (café/bar, small supermarket, boulangerie).
The property can sleep upto 12 adults / children plus 3 babies / toddlers.
Les Roches has a large fully enclosed garden and backs onto the surrounding fields. There is play area and trampoline for children, as well as a lovely heated swimming pool which is fenced for safety.
The inside of the property is light and spacious, with a large open plan living area giving on to the kitchen. Wide patio doors open fully to the terrace to give a seamless flow between the kitchen and the extensive terrace.
The kitchen is fully equipped with induction hob, oven, fridge / freezer, dishwasher and all the pans & utensils necessary to create delicious meals from fine local ingredients. A washing machine and tumble drier are provided. Outside, there is a BBQ.
There are five comfortable bedrooms in the property. Downstairs are three bedrooms (two king sized rooms – one of which has a ensuite shower room – and a triple room). Also downstairs is a large, family, bathroom.
Two further bedrooms are upstairs – one double and one room that can be arranged as a triple or as a king sized bed plus a single. This room also has a separate nursery area. Both the upstairs bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms.
Babies and toddlers are well catered for with stair gates, highchairs, cots, toys and games all provided. Buggies are available on request.
Although in a peaceful location, Les Roches is far from being isolated. Within a 15 minute drive can be found several large supermarkets and many other shops as well as an extensive selection of restaurants and the natural delights of the Mervent forest. La Rochelle and the wonderful beaches of the Vendée are about 40km distant. At the end of the lane on which Les Roches is situated is access to a vast area of open country crisscrossed with tracks and paths that is ideal for walking, running or cycling.
Please note that Les Roches is not part of a gite complex nor are we resident on site (we live on the other side of the village). The pool and grounds at Les Roches are therefore for the exclusive use of guests staying at the property.
Les Roches is located in the village of Le Langon, which has an excellent bakery, a general store and a café / bar. The village and its neighbors host a number of festivals and events during the summer months that give a real taste of French country life.
The gite is roughly equidistant between the market towns of Fontenay le Comte and Luçon, both of which have a full range of shops & services as well as a fine selection of restaurants. The sights of the area are within easy reach: the beaches of the South Vendée (which are rather excellent) are an easy drive (La Faute sur Mer is about 40 km away); La Rochelle with its lively city centre, shopping and restaurants is 45 km. There are adventure parks (Indian Forrest & the O’Gliss water park) 45 minutes drive away and the world-class theme park at the Puy du Fou is less than an hour. Closer to home, the natural beauty of the Mervent forest with its shady trails & cycle paths, lake (with water sports centre) and zoo is a 15 minute trip.
For groups travelling with young children, cots, highchairs, children’s’ crockery and a bottle sterilizer are provided. Buggy loan is available if desired and the stairs are fitted with gates top and bottom.
We provide all bedlinen and towels (bath and pool / beach); all utilities, local taxes and end-of-stay cleaning are included.
Why take a gîte in the Vendée? Simply, the Vendée is an ideal family holiday destination with the area offering plenty to see and do. The countryside is peaceful and uncrowded; there are adventure parks, fun fairs and zoos for all ages, and the beaches of the Vendée are amongst the best in Europe.
The south of the Vendée enjoys the second highest number of sunshine hours in France, after the Côte d’Azur, and benefits from a truly enviable climate. Away from the beach attractions include the award winning Puy du Fou – voted best theme park in the world by its own industry.
La Rochelle and the Il de Ré are in easy reach as is the forest of Mervent and the natural park of green Venise.
We offer pricing and accept payment in either pounds sterling or euros as best suits our guests.
