This 'away from it all' typically French family-friendly country house is near all the best beaches and sights of the Vendee. The property has been tastefully decorated and furnished whilst retaining its turn of the century charm. It has a large 3/4 acre private garden trimmed with grapevines and rosebushes, a private 4 x 8 metre swimming pool with sunbathing and dining patio decking, sun loungers and beach chairs. An outdoor cast iron stone bread oven is a feature Bar-B-Que. A new kitchen and living/dining room with its feature fireplace are particularly pretty and an impressive beamed hallway and traditional-style staircase lead to the first floor. Picturesque Mareuil sur Lay with its river frontage is nearby and superb Vendeen beaches are a 30 minute drive. The tranquil lake at Chateau Guibert is a short cycle ride away. Golf, at a magnificent course, is just a 15 min. drive, whilst Tennis is a mere 1 km. away. Shops, bars and fabulous restaurants are all within easy drive.
'Superbly equipped, extensive accommodation, large gardens and fabulous pool. The best house we have stayed in France in over 25 years and we will revisit again next year'. Geoffrey S. Sept. 2011
'We had such a lovely week at this house and find it difficult to fault - well maybe the pictures don't do it justice! Anyway the property is basically the best we have stayed at whilst in France' - Claygate, Surrey, June 2011
'We absolutely loved staying at this house. We had three generations of family including an 11 week old baby and the home met all of our needs perfectly'. Vicky W, August 2011
'We had a great week, with La Vassaliere providing everything that we needed and more. The website doesn't convey how comfortable and spacious the house is'. Ciaran, July 2011
