Vouvant, Vendee, Pays de la Loire
A traditional French 2 storey house added to the 300-year old farmhouse we think in the 1930s, Grandmere's offers spacious holiday accommodation, with large sitting room, kitchen/diner and bathroom and a separate toilet on the ground floor, and two bedrooms upstairs, both can have extra beds if required.

They were very accommodating and generous - leaving cheese, wine and extras in the fridge, just what you need when you arrive after a long drive. We stayed with...

A lovely spacious Gite, with everything you need. the other gite was not occupied due to a last minute cancellation so we had the place...

About the neighborhood
Warm summers, long (and can be fairly hot (38C) days). Lots of history. This was once 'English' Aquitaine - Queen Eleanor's home at Neuil sur l'Autize is only 30km away. The Venise Verte (the drained fens) are also an interesting tourist attraction, with trips in powered craft, canoes and punts. There is a good bar/restaurant in the village (2km) and several more in the surrounding area. Futuroscope and Puy du Fou are each just over an hour away. Varied beaches (from very quiet to frenetic are within an hour-and-a-quarter, although all can be busy in July and August. There are several inland lakeside 'beaches' and watersport facilities within half an hour. There is an extensive network of cycle/walking tracks, and several riding stables locally.
