Self Catering Cottage in Pouzauges, France

Home description

Detached house near Chantonnay, Vendee, Western Loire.

If you yearn for privacy and the peace, tranquility and friendliness of rural France, this is the property for you. La Guimbaudiere is a former smallholding set in a rural location and bordered by agricultural land. The house, which is detached, is newly renovated and surrounded by its own large grounds but is within 2kms of the local town which provides all essential amenities as well as a lake, cinema/theatre and indoor swimming pool. The famous Puy du Fou is only 15 kms away.

The accommodation available in this house, all of which is on the ground level, comprises 4 bedrooms, 1 of which is en suite, a separate bathroom and toilet, lounge area, newly fitted kitchen/diner and shower-room/utility room. The property has recently been redecorated and fitted out and features traditional Vendeean mosaic floor tiles in several of the rooms.

Outside there is a large garden (formerly an orchard) with plenty of space for the children to let off steam, and a patio sun-trap where you can relax and enjoy your drinks and barbecue.

Pouzauges town centre has a good range of small shops, and on the edge of town a Super U supermarket will provide all the food, drink and household goods you will need.
