Flexibility of accommodation is provided by the three bedrooms, on the 1st floor we have a double, the top floor is a triple whilst on the ground floor there is a single bed on the mezzanine. The outside area has a children’s swing as well as the large pool , new hot tub and covered sun terrace. Lawns, flower beds and fruit trees surround both properties making it perfect for outdoor dining or, as there are plenty of sunbeds available for you why not just relax the day away on. After the sun has gone down you can enjoy a glass of wine and sit and listen to the amazing chorus provided by the frogs in the nearby lake, just look up and see how brightly the stars shine at night here without the light pollution that it is so hard to escape from in today’s world. Whether you want to spend your holiday lazing in the sun or seeing true rural France this is the place for you. The local area is a perfect place for walking, cycling, fishing, birdwatching and searching out the abundant wildlife. It is a fantastic place to visit from April all the way through till October because it has, on average, around 2400 hours of sunshine every year, second only to Provence and the Côte d' Azur! T-shirt weather in early November is not that uncommon and because it is largely undiscovered, we do not have the crowds of tourists that you will find in some of the other better known tourist regions in France. This secret area has conserved its tranquility and the unspoiled beauty of authentic rural France. Even so, there are some excellent nearby restaurants or you can simply relax with a book or DVD, make the most of the rest you know you deserve and savour the delicious food and wonderful wines available locally. Allonne is a small village with a 13th Century church and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The village has a network of chemines (lanes) for walking or off road cycling, and is a great location for road cycling. Secondigny (5kms) has a supermarket for shopping as well as a park with large lake for fishing and spotting the beaver-like coypu as well as pedaloes, an open air pool, cycle hire, children’s play area and a very popular restaurant overlooking the lake. Maziere (12km - 16min) has an 18 hole golf course (Golf du Petit Chene) and there are two other courses less than an hour away. Parthenay (9kms) is a mediaeval town with castle and winding cobbled streets with wooden houses. There is also a large shopping centre. About 20 mins away is Argenton-les-Vallées with a beautiful lakeside restaurant, boating, kayaking, supermarket and international karting circuit. The large château town of Bressuire is 20 minutes’ drive with two hypermarkets, shops, restaurants, bowling and an international tennis club. Puy-de-Fou, Doué Zoo, Saumur, Le Cadre Noir (horse riding display) and Pescalis are 30-40 minutes’ drive. Within easy reach of the Vendée beaches for a day’s outing. There are many nearby places of interest such as the medieval village of Vouvant with lovely views over the ancient ramparts, the forest of Mervent with walks, activity parks and large lake for swimming and boating, Mouilleron en Pareds - the birthplace of George Clemenceau, Bazoges en Pareds with its wonderful donjon (keep) and medieval garden, Fontenay le Comte, a rennaisance town and former capital of the Vendée. A little further away you will find the tranquil waterways of the Venise Verte and Puy du Fou - the amazing historical park of Vendée history. More
