Farmhouse on the Vendee/Deux Sevres borders
The area is a mix of sunflower fields, rolling hills with pretty limestone villages tucked away waiting to be discovered; reminiscent of the Cotswolds but with sunshine. The area benefits from a micro climate, giving the region a level of summer sunshine bettered in France only by the Cote d'Azur. The house is set in a wooded valley about 1.5km from the village of Vernoux en Gatine where you can find a bar, restaurant, boulangerie and small supermarket. The larger towns of Largeasse and L'Absie are about 5km where you will find more shops, restaurants and bars. Nearby there is the Forest of Mervent - a vast nature lovers paradise with forest walks, cycle ways, sailing and canoeing and many attractions all within 45 mins such as - Le Puy de Fou, one of France's most popular tourist attractions, Pescalis (fishing heaven) and Futuroscope.
The farmhouse is set in beautiful countryside in a small hamlet with only two houses. Very peaceful place to have a holiday and the kids are quite safe running around the vast gardens. There is a separate field for a game of football, rugby, whatever you choose and those that enjoy something more leisurely, there is a boules pitch.
