3* gite available to rent throughout the year. 
A perfect base to explore rural France and to enjoy the history, attractions, excellent climate and charm of the Vendee. 
A recently converted 17th century barn with lots of character. It’s spacious and is fully furnished for six.

Vendee Gites holiday

The barn is located in a hamlet near Sigournais, about 8 km from Chantonnay.  
It’s a perfect base to cater for all holiday interests or simply to relax. (And it’s Wi-Fi enabled!)

You could, for example, spend a day on the beaches of Sable d’Olonne, la Tranche or la Faute or take a boat out in the Marais Poitevin (the green Venice of France). You could go for lunch in la Rochelle and spend the afternoon antique hunting or visiting the sights and attractions. The Lac du Rochereau – only a few minutes from the barn – is probably one of the most beautiful spots you have ever seen – you can swim, have a picnic and admire the views or go fishing for whitefish including carp. Nantes and Poitiers are within easy striking distance by car for superb restaurants and shopping. In the area, there’s horse riding/racing, surfing, water sports, cycling, running, golf (40 minutes from 3 golf courses including the most challenging one in France), walks and even nightclubs for the energetic. Also ballooning, bird watching, forests, canoeing, boating, many places of historic interest, markets, a zoo, villages such as Vouvant (often said to be the most beautiful in France but we think Mouchamps may be even more charming). And of, course there is an abundance of local bars and restaurants to savour the local culture. 

Sigournais is only 25km from the Puy du Fou, the second most popular tourist attraction in France after the Eiffel Tower. This is one of France’s best kept secrets and is a spectacular day out for all the family. (information at www.puydufou.com).

You could fly to either la Rochelle, Nantes or Poitiers and hire a car (from possibly as little as £15 a day), or it's about a 3 hour drive by car from St Malo ferry port or you could drive from Caen, Cherbourg, Le Havre or Calais (we can supply detailed driving instructions as well as ferry discounts).
