Barn -
3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
Moutiers-les-Mauxfaits, Vendee, Pays de la Loire
The barn was built around 1601 from the ancient fossilized stone of the original monastery of Moutiers Les Mauxfait, it was originally built to house cattle but was later turned into three barns, the large oak beamed roof structure is original and we've managed to retain many interesting features.You have the rustic charm of a 17th century building with all the mod cons of modern living right in the heart of France.<BR>You can be totally cut off from the world if you wish just relaxing in the countryside with all natures charms or a 15 minute drive and you have all the hustle and bustle of a beach resort.

This has been our second holiday at the wonderful barn conversion in the heart of the idealic Vendee countryside and yet only 10 minutes from some of the best beaches of the area. The first week was a bucket and spade expedition with our two young granddaughters and their parents. They particularly loved the sandy beaches of La Tranche-sur-Mer; the rock pools and fossil hunting at Longville and St Vincent sur Jard and body boarding at Les Conches - surfing for the more experienced to name but some of the beaches visited. It was great to return to the gite with the garden, swings and slide to relax in and to wind down whilst enjoying a meal prepared in the well equipped kitchen or maybe a BBQ on the back balcony deck or at the front in the specially built stone cooking grill. For adults there is plenty of space to entertain and we were able to invite friends over who were staying in the area and could prepare a full scale evening meal with ease. Added interest with the two ponds...

Management response:

Were glad you had a nice stay at 'la Grenier a foin" and your grandchildren enjoyed the park area. Our aim for our Gite is to keep everyone happy and lets face it if the children are happy the adults are happy too. enjoy the rest of your summer. Allison & Stephen

This lovely gite is the perfect place to spend time in the heart of the of the Vendee. Peaceful,calm, spotlessly clean, and well equipped, (it comes with a full complement of television equipment and games consoles for children should the weather be inclement, as it was when we were there in June), is very comfortable is just a short drive from a number of attractive beaches. The gite is surrounded by fields and has a small lake containing otters adjacent to the property. It is well located with the market town of xxx and a number of super-markets within a short drive. The only negatives for us were the parking area sprouting of weeds and the lack of a dishwasher. However this should not detract from the enjoyment of the development as the quality of the gite, and its location with many interesting places to visit, make it highly desirable.

Management response:

We are delighted that you enjoyed our barn and make every effort to make this a place home from home, Weeds are a on going fighting battle to keep down and we try our best to keep down( a issue i will highlight to our gardener to undertake!)Many thanks for the review.
