(Translated by Google) A piece of paradise on earth! At this lovely spot in the Vendée we relaxed again in and around the large swimming pool, which is always clean and nice and warm. The very large garden is perfectly maintained and you can play jeu de boules and badminton here. There is also a games barn with a table tennis table and dart board. We had a great time again. The BBQ is nicely located next to the covered table, where you can eat outside in the shade.
This is the first vacation spot I’ve been to for a second time and it certainly won’t be the last.

Een stukje paradijs op aarde! Op deze heerlijke plek in de Vendee hebben we weer heerlijk gerelaxed in en aan het grote zwembad, dat altijd schoon en lekker warm is. De hele grote tuin is perfect onderhouden en hier kun je fijn jeu de boulen en badminton spelen. Er is ook een speelschuur met een tafeltennis tafel en dartbord. We hebben ons weer heerlijk vermaakt. De BBQ ligt mooi naast de overdekte tafel, waar je lekker in de schaduw buiten kunt eten.
Dit is de eerste vakantieplek waar ik voor een tweede keer naar toe ben geweest en dit zal zeker niet de laatste keer zijn.

We booked this back in March 2018 and finally able to have a great family holiday. There were 14 of us., 7 being grandchildren, age from 4 yrs to 14 yrs old. The older ones practically lived in the barn playing darts and table tennis. Plenty of ground for children to run around. Swings, badminton, boules. Chris produced Medieval garden toys which he had made during Covid. The seating area outdoors under the pergola was huge. Very relaxing, especially after a bbq and few glasses of French wine!!! Dianne and Chris gave us ideas of amazing places to visit, especially with our age range. The coastline is only 20 minutes away. The local boulangerie has mouth watering cakes, pastries etc. The Vendee area is so picturesque. Chris and Dianne are lovely hosts. Always on site if you need help. We would definitely recommend this farmhouse and cottage.

What a fantastic place. It is ideally situated in the Vendée countryside, the perfect rural retreat and yet it is just 5 minutes from the local boulangerie and 20 minutes drive to the stunning coast. The property is spacious and clean, and set in the most beautiful gardens. There are brilliant amenities for children including a table tennis table, volleyball court, play area and of course the beautiful outside heated pool. The hosts Diane and Chris are really helpful and friendly and work hard to ensure your holiday is exactly what you want it to be. We spent a lot of time cycling the stunning Vendée coastal path, which are flat and very family friendly. There is also an excellent lake nearby for swimming and kayaking, and you can even wake board! Our teenage boys loved the place, and there is a huge amount of places to explore and venues to visit. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It is superb, and exceptional value for money.
