Les Roches is a traditional village house which has been fully renovated and refurbished to a high standard. It is situated on a quiet lane a little way from the village centre (which boasts a bar, boulangerie, shop and post office) and is located in the South Vendée between the towns of Fontenay le Comte and Lucon.
Les Roches has a large fully enclosed garden and backs onto the surrounding fields. There is play area and trampoline for children, as well as a lovely heated swimming pool which is fenced for safety. The pool is available mid-April to mid-October.
The inside of the property is light and spacious, with a large open plan living area giving on to the kitchen. Wide patio doors open fully to the terrace to give a seamless flow between the kitchen and the extensive terrace.
The kitchen is fully equipped with induction hob, oven, fridge / freezer, dishwasher and all the pans & utensils necessary to create delicious meals from fine local ingredients. A washing machine and tumble drier are provided. Outside, there is a BBQ.
There are five comfortable bedrooms in the property. Downstairs are three bedrooms (two king sized rooms - one of which has a ensuite shower room - and a triple room). Also downstairs is a large, family, bathroom.
Two further bedrooms are upstairs - one double and one room that can be arranged as a triple or as a king sized bed plus a single. This room also has a separate nursery area. Both the upstairs bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms.
Babies and toddlers are well catered for with stair gates, highchairs, cots, toys and games all provided. Buggies are available on request.
Although in a peaceful location, Les Roches is far from being isolated. Within a 15 minute drive can be found several large supermarkets and many other shops as well as an extensive selection of restaurants and the natural delights of the Mervent forest. La Rochelle and the wonderful beaches of the Vendée are about 40km distant. At the end of the lane on which Les Roches is situated is access to a vast area of open country crisscrossed with tracks and paths that is ideal for walking, running or cycling.
Please note that Les Roches is not part of a gite complex nor are we resident on site (we live on the other side of the village). The pool and grounds at Les Roches are therefore for the exclusive use of guests staying at the property.
All bedlinen is provided as are towels (bath & pool/beach). All utilities, end-of-stay cleaning and local taxes are included. We can offer baby sitting and can recommend an excellent local caterer who will deliver to the house for your special occasion meals.
