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. ...La Maison du Soleil is located in the peaceful hamlet of Les Chaffauds and has great views over the surrounding countryside.

Lots of tourist attractions within an hours drive - including the Forest and Lake at Mervent, the artists' Village of Vouvant and the Marais Poitevin wetlands area - famous for its canals and ruined abbeys. The Puy du Fou Historic Theme Park is not to be missed - with Chariot races, Viking Ships, Jousting competitions and a fantastic Bird of Prey show along with an Evening show with a cast of over a 1000 actors and animals!More

About the neighbourhood
The hamlet of Les Chaffauds is located only 8km from Chantonnay which has many supermarkets, restaurants, banks & a weekly market. In the summer there are many festivals & fetes held nearby, including a 3 day walking event and the French National Cycling Championships. All of the local villages & towns hold markets and the coastal towns have lots of evening entertainment on the beaches. La Maison du Soleil is only 30km from the fantastic Puy du Fou historical theme park where you will be transported back in time to the age of Gladiators, Vikings and Musketeers - an unmissable day out. There are forests and lakes nearby to explore, and the Marais Poitevin series of inland waterways and towpaths is only 45 minutes away.
Getting around
A car is essential for staying in this holiday home, but once you arrive - you can cycle along the quiet country lanes.
