Villa -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Vendee, Pays de la Loire
This detached cottage has been completely rebuilt by its owner to provide a lovely modern house yet in keeping with its origins. The lounge features a modern wood-burner as well as exposed beams, original stonework and a wood floor. There is a modern fitted kitchen and both floors have a shower room with basin and separate toilet. Outside is a large enclosed garden, perfect for sitting quietly in the shade of the hot summer sun. In the heart of the Marais Poitevin canal network you can hire canoes and there are several pretty local villages and markets and the beaches of the Vendée and Charente are within an hour's drive.

Myself and my wife have had the pleasure of staying at Mariusz's cottage on 2 occasions (once in May 2012 and once in June 2013). The cottage (Barn) itself is fabulous - very clean and tidy, has all of the amenities that you could wish...More

About the neighborhood
Saint Sigismond is a small village in the heart of the MArais Poitevin - Green Venice that has its own little port, where you can have a snac before you get to explore our part of Vendee from the water level, hire it for the night trip and see how we set water on fire.... (not a joke)
You can book a hot air balloon trip (subject to availability and the weather) to see it from the sky, or hire the bike in Damvix and make your way to the Ocean (27km). In the evening you can visit the Maillzais Abbey for an outdoor concert!
In fact there is so much to do, that I will be adding more to this space!
