Property Description

Just ten minutes’ drive from the glorious Vendée beaches, these holiday properties are set on a former farm on the wide open spaces of the Marais Desseche. Le Cygne (ref F85140) and Le Héron (ref F85141) are converted from former farm buildings, each with private terrace, and have been carefully renovated to retain the charm and features of earlier times. La Cigogne (ref F85203) and Le Colvert (ref F85204) are part of the former farmhouse, and provide simple accommodation in a traditional style. These four properties share the use of a heated swimming pool (open 15 May - 30 Sep). Fishing is available on the lake within the grounds, and on the canal just 1km away. This fascinating area of reclaimed land is criss-crossed with canals and has uninterrupted views for miles. Close by, the charming village of Angles has shops, bars and restaurants, with a further choice at La Tranche-sur-Mer. The coastline here has miles of sandy beaches, backing onto natural dunes and shady pine forests, making it ideal for family holidays. There are excellent facilities for water sports, including jet-ski hire, windsurfing and sailing, as well as go karting, micro-lights, tennis, golf and riding in the surrounding area. Further afield, the old port of La Rochelle is easily accessible, as is the bustling resort of Les Sables d’Olonne, offering daily boat trips to the beautiful island of Yeu.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Excellent location for beaches as well as going out and about finding things to do. Also if you enjoy fishing especially with children it is right on site, The pool is well kept, heated and the hot shower by the pool is a treat! The owners are also very helpful. Aug 2011.
  2. Plenty space for all 5 of us both indoors and outdoors. June 2010.
  3. The gite was spacious, cool and comfortable. The furnishings were good quality and the surrounding countryside was beautiful. The pool was maintained to a very high standard. We were very impressed. ps...we just put good for the weather because it was a heatwave and 39 degrees was too hot - especially after Scotland! July 2006.
  4. The amount of space for this property is excellent. Not only do you have private terrace overlooking natural pond, there is large grassed area for bar-b-q and ball games for the kids. July 2007.
  5. Very comfortable and quiet.
