Vix, Vendee, Pays de la Loire
Situated near Vix in the Green Venice area of the south Vendee, a village well known for its wine producers. The village is within cycling distance along quiet lanes and offers basic shops and a bar/restaurant. Cycle hire and delivery can be organised. Further along the attractive riverbank there is a nature reserve to explore. Whilst the house is located right on the river bank, the gardens are fully fenced from the river. The spacious interior is comfortably furnished in a pleasing blend of traditional and modern. There is a ground floor master bedroom with en-suite, ideal for those with limited mobility, and three further bedrooms on the first floor. Ideally placed for exploring the Green Venice area with its canals and waterways, yet within easy reach of the coast – 24 miles / 38km towards La Rochelle, or 34 miles / 54km towards La F...

I can't thank Mme Audinea enough for her warm welcome and kindness throughout our stay. She was there to meet us with a welcoming drink and melon which was very much appreciated. The house is exceptional and the heated pool was brilliant. It is very well equipped ....you really couldn't want for more. The setting is the best I've seen...

Management response:

Glad that you enjoyed your stay! Perhaps we will see you again in the future...

Having travelled throughout France for the last 20 years, I think both myself and the missus agree that this is the best place we have ever stayed. The house is great. Very comfortable and well furnished. Good comfortable beds. The double in the downstairs bedroom is a whopper ( parents take note). Shutters are great to keep the house cool...
