Les mesanges/gite du poiron

Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
Fontenay-le-Comte, Vendee, Pays de la Loire
Le Poiron

nowhere else would you find a more welcoming and special place as 'the Poiron'. It is not the grand chateau of Versaille or Chambord but it goes back all the way to the 14th century, Away from the life of Versaille it hides at the end of a path ,surrounded by the beautiful forest of Mervent.
This charming gite benefits from tranquil surroundings ,plenty sunshine an d access to all facilities, swimming pool, table tennis.....
Plenty of oppotunities to enjoy your breakfasts or french aperitifs sitting on the private terrace.

About the neighbourhood
there is so much to see and to do in the area, that i am giving you a short version:
Cité médiévale, Vouvant ,Le château de Saint Mesmin:Maillezais: L'abbaye St Pierre',Bazoges en Pareds:, La Rochelle, le Marais Poitevin et 'le puy du fou', et le futuroscope..

At the same time, if you are looking for peace and quiet, you will find it at the chateau and in the forest;
Getting around
If you are planning on doing a lot of visits and activities aoutside the gite, i would advice you take a car.

But for walks, cycling and treks, the forest is and country are by the domain.
