The house

The walled courtyard
1 of 20The walled courtyard
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
Sigournais, Vendee, Pays de la Loire
A converted ancient dwelling house in a historic rural hamlet lovingly restored to retain its character and history.
It is very spacious with lots of natural light and is furnished to the highest standard for 7 guests. A perfect base for exploring the Vendee and its history - or simply relax and enjoy rural France and its Atlantic coastline.

The house is located near the village of Sigournais and its medieval château. The nearest large shopping centre is 10 minutes away in Chantonnay, although there is a small supermarket in Sigournais where you can buy virtually everything that you might need and this is only 5 minutes away. The Vendee is renowned for its excellent climate - as much sunshine as the Cote d'Azur.

I stayed here last August for a week and it was great. We usually stay in a different part of France but chose this for a change. Not only is the brand new house in great condition (and massive) but the area is fantastic for...More
