A warm welcome awaits everyone at Bramble Cottage
Bedroom three.
An outdoor above ground pool is situated off the large terrace and is open from May to early October
Sunflowers are all around the region. These were in the field over the hedge a couple of years ago.
Step into the hallway with a chaise long beneath the oak stairwell.
Relax in the sitting room
The dining room can be an alternative when it is too hot to eat alfresco.
The family breakfast kitchen. Doors to the main terrace and a side door to the breakfast terrace.
A handy utility with second hob, belfast sink, washing machine, two fridges and second dish washer.
Shower room and toilet for bedroom two.
This gas bar-b-q is on the terrace with and alternative charcoal one for that alfresco cooking.
A garden gate at the end of the front drive entices you to explore the garden and open views beyond.
This wall and gateway gives added privacy to the rear terrace.
Young children love the open spaces. Large mown grass areas surround two sides of Bramble.
Puy du Fou. Just one of the 12 or so daily shows in this incredible theme park. A great day out.
Just 30 mins away is the Valley of the monkeys, where all ages can wander the paths to be up close.
The pyjama donkeys on the Ile de Re. A favourite as you leave the large St Martin de  Re car park.
Fishing at St Germier, the nearest of many fishing lakes all within an easy drive from Bramble.
Returning to the quay in Coulon after exploring the waterways of the Venise Vert.

Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at this property with our 4 and 6 year old in the second week in August after a week of camping. The accommodation is perfectly maintained and luxurious. The house is in large, secluded grounds which back onto rolling countryside. The view from the rear of the garden is spectacular. The house has been converted from a barn, and has every possible amenity, including bathroom en suite, air conditioning, a well equipped kitchen and Sky television.

There are extensive grounds for the children to safely roam around in, and a pool which they spent most of their time cooling off in. There is a nearby village with a public swimming pool, which is only five minutes drive away.

A thirty minute drive away is the theme park Futuroscope, which our children loved. There were day trips to the canals of Coulon, and to the city of Niort. A slightly longer drive away is the beach. In truth though, the house was such a joy to be in that we felt no need to leave. After a week...

The property is beautiful and very spacious. The family breakfast kitchen is perfect. My favourite part was sitting at the breakfast bar sipping wine whilst watching my husband cook. All the bedrooms have there own bath or shower room and have been beautifully decorated. Real luxury!! The views from the master bedroom and patio are lovely.... Open French countryside. We enjoyed eating outside, watching the sunset and star gazing at the clear night sky.

Nearby villages provided bakeries, fishing lakes and restaurants. We also visited La Rochelle for the day which was approx 1 hr away.
