We spent a wonderfully relaxing time at La Treille. The weather was fabulous and there are so many things to do in the area. Puy de Fou [an absolute must for children] is spectacular, then there is the water park, Marais Poitevin, Vouvant etc etc.
The gite is delightful. Clean, well appointed and very comfortable. And the gardens and beautiful.
Well worth a visit!! I'm sure we will be back.
Le Puy de Forge is a lovely house, very large and very French. The rooms are spacious, and the window shutters and tiled floors keep the rooms beautifully cool during the hot summer days. There are only four of us (2 adults, 2 children) so there were several rooms in the house that we didn’t use at all but it was nice to have the space and everywhere was extremely clean.
The roads around the house are generally quiet (barring agricultural machinery, but we did stay at the height of the harvest and the children were excited to watch the tractors and combine harvesters going past!) so we had some pleasant bike rides. Unfortunately we didn’t manage to find any local parks for the children to play in but the garden is large and secure so they had plenty of space for running around. There’s a barbecue in the garage which we used a couple of times, and the garage is secure so we were happy to leave our bicycles in there.
John (the owner) is quick to reply to emails, and very helpful, and while we stayed in the house we also had contact numbers for local people who could assist us in case of any issues or emergencies.
In terms of local attractions, Poy du Fou is a definite must for a visit, as are the beaches of the Atlantic coast. While going to the coast was a bit of a trek, it was well worth it and we visited several really lovely, family-friendly beaches. Bioparc de Doué la Fontaine was somewhere else that we would highly recommend visitors to Le Puy de Forge to visit.
