La Maison du Soleil Holiday Home

Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Sainte-Cecile, Vendee, Pays de la Loire
La Maison du Soleil is located in the peaceful hamlet of Les Chaffauds and has great views over the surrounding countryside. The owners, who live next door, have lovingly restored the house, whilst retaining many of the original features - such as oak beams and stone walls.

To the back of the house there are large gardens and an orchard of fruit trees. There is also a 4.5 metre circular heated pool and an area set aside for sunbathing. There is a large patio area with barbecue and seating - great for al fresco dining and relaxing after a hard days site-seeing!

This is the ideal location for country walks, cycling along peaceful lanes or relaxing by the side of one of the nearby lakes - perhaps even fishing. The owners are always on hand with tips for the best routes and fishing spots.

Lots of tourist attractions within an hours drive...
