Rental Home
Situated near Vix in the Green Venice area of the south Vendee, a village well known for its wine producers. The village is within cycling distance and offers basic shops and a bar/restaurant. Cycle hire and delivery can be organised. Further along the riverbank there is a nature reserve to explore. Whilst the house is located right on the river bank, the gardens are fully fenced from the river. The spacious interior is comfortably furnished in a pleasing blend of traditional and modern. There is a ground floor master bedroom with en-suite, ideal for those with limited mobility, and three further bedrooms on the first floor. Ideally placed for exploring the Green Venice area with its canals and waterways, yet within easy reach of the coast – 24 miles / 38km towards La Rochelle, or 34 miles...Situated near Vix in the Green Venice area of the south Vendee, a village well known for its wine producers.

La Rochelle is widely thought to be one of the nicest towns on the Atlantic coast, with it’s lovely port, endless restaurants and historic narrow streets. It also offers a fabulous aquarium to visit and of course you can take the bridge or ferry for a day out on the pretty island of Re. The nearby 'Guinguette' offers music and dancing on some weekends during high season and a handy bar for an evening drink. More
