This offer only valid in summer season Why go 'Self Catering' Let mum have a Holiday as well and let Val, your hostess, do all of your cooking (not to mention the washing up!)Our dinners are 2 courses with wine - 19 euros per person and 3 courses with wine - 21 euros per person. Childrens menu half price with a soft drink. Picnic boxes can be ordered 24 hours in advance. All of our food is homemade using local produce wherever possible. You will be asked what foods you don't or can't eat, so you are assured of a meal to your liking . Although our availability looks like we are empty, please note that we are practically full on other dates, so please contact us as soon as possible to enquire if we have a room. The area is ideal for exploring with lots to see and do. Why not visit the famous Abbey at Nieul sur L'Autize and the working water mill where démonstrations in bread making are given. Or take the children into Mervent and visit Parc Pierre Brune or perhaps the adventure park. The Marais Poitevin is only 8 kms where you will see lots of different wildlife. A bit further away (50kms) the famous port of La Rochelle where 'people watching' over a cup of coffee is a must. Or try Les Sables d'Olonne. You'll think you've taken a wrong turning and arrived in the South of France! Just 1 hour by car is the infamous Puy du Fou, a must for anyone to visit and if you are Lucky enough to be here during the nightly spectacles, boy oh boy, are you in for a treat! Its breathtaking! Or why not try Futuroscope. Its a fabulous day out. I could go on and on as I've lived here for 20 years, but why not come and visit and see it for yourself! (have I stolen that from a TV advert!) Je parle français, donc si vous voulez prend un réservation 'pas de problème' Val Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 45209808000016More

About the neighbourhood
We are close to the famous abbaye at Nieul sur L'Autize. Just 10kms from the Abbaye at Maillezais; 10 kms from the Venise Vert where a punt on the river should not be missed. Our village also boasts its own man made beach with lake, which has been completely revamped. If you are Lucky enough to be here on July 14th they have the most spectacular fire works display absolutely free. Mervent forest is just 10 mins by car, as is Vouvant where there are many horse and walking trails. If you are into historic buildings you won't be disappointed - from houses to churches to abbays.
How to get there
By road A83 take exit Fontenay le Comte. By air La Rochelle then hire car Full travel détails given on booking
