A third single bed or cot can be added to the twin bedroom. Outside there is a patio area with comfy chairs, and a table - ideal for an aperitif after a hectic day of sightseeing or sunbathing in the private garden area. There is also a BBQ, al fresco dining table & chairs and sunloungers. The private garden is surrounded by the main gardens which belong to property owners, who live next door and who are always on hand to offer advice about where to visit. These gardens contain a fantastic fruit & vegetable area, along with a large orchard of cherry and walnut trees. There is plenty of space for the children to run around or play football - as well as table tennis and a set of swings. The area is great for walking and cycling - with miles of country lanes to explore. Within 30 minutes drive are several tourist attractions - including the Marais Poitevin wetland canal area - with waterways and ruined abbeys to discover. The beaches are less than an hour away and the picturesque old port of La Rochelle and the Il de Re make a good day out. The Fantastic Puy du Fou theme park is only 40 minutes away and here you will be transported back in time to the Age of the Gladiators, Vikings, Medieval Knights and Musketeers - not forgetting the Spectacular Evening show with over a 1000 actors and animals. A must see! More

About the neighbourhood
Le Gite Tranquille lives up to its name, and you will find many a quiet country lane to walk or cycle along - you will be able to bird watch en route with many birds of prey and migratory birds nesting in the area - we'll even provide the bikes for your days out! Boating and fishing are available nearby on the lake at St Martin Lars or in the Forest of Mervent. For the more energetic guests, there is horse riding or a swimming pool within 20 minutes and the beaches of the southern Vendée are only 45 minutes drive away. The Theme Park of Puy du Fou is only a 30 minute drive away and the Marais Poitevin is close by too.
Getting around
A car is essential for your holiday as this gite is located in a small hamlet, with the nearest shops and restaurants a 10 minute drive away.
