Holiday Home Description

Gite de La Moutonnerie is a comfortable 3 bedroom holiday home set in the small village of Curzon, only a 15km drive to the beaches of the Southern Vendée.

It has off-road parking in front of the house for 3 cars and is a well-presented old stone farmhouse. Inside, the ground floor has an open plan living and dining area, with a corner kitchen.

There is a large leather sofa and armchair, with coffee table and TV (with French free-to-air TV Channels). A Wi-Fi internet connection is available in the house. The dining table comfortably seats 6 guests and the corner kitchen has a newly fitted dishwasher and gas hob with electric oven. There is plenty of cutlery, crockery and equipment for all of your needs whilst on holiday - including kettle, toaster and Nespresso coffee maker.

To the side of the living area is a large games room with pool/billiard table, lots of board games and holiday reading (in French and English). There is also a further sofa and dining table.

Behind the dining area is a shower room and separate toilet and access to the covered terrace and private garden at the back of the property.

The covered terrace has a dining table and chairs, plus a gas barbecue, and has grape vines hanging from the framework.

The garden is laid mostly to lawn and has a couple of sun loungers, a table tennis table and is a sun trap for most of the day. There are neighbours nearby - but none over look the garden.

One of the double bedrooms is located on the ground floor and has views to the front of the house. There are original exposed oak beams and a tiled floor.

A further two bedrooms are upstairs - one has a double bed and the other has a double bed, plus a small single bed. All bedrooms have storage cupboards and shutters to keep the rooms dark during the light summer mornings. A second shower room is also on the first floor - with shower cubicle and separate toilet.

A washing machine is located in a utility room at the back of the house.

All bedding and towels (tea and bath) are provided, but please bring your own beach towels.

Curzon and the Surrounding Area

Gite de La Moutonnerie is located in the village of Curzon which forms one side of a vast Wetlands area in the Southern Vendée. When walking through the village, you can walk right up to the edge of the Wetlands ‘Marais Communal’ and view the cows and horses that graze there over the summer. In the winter, the landscape changes and the Wetlands flood and become home to thousands of migratory birds.

The village is only 15km from the beach at La Faute sur Mer or La Tranche sur Mer - which are both bustling seaside towns with weekly markets, summer entertainment and long sandy beaches. There are lots of restaurants and souvenir shops, plus craft fairs and firework displays. Don’t forget the great ice cream parlours too!

In 2016 a new Water Park opened its doors for the first time - The O’Gliss Water Park is only a 15 minute drive from Curzon and you can spend the whole day on the many slides, river channels, beaches and playing in the waves! There is even an area for younger children to enjoy.

The Indian Forest Adventure Park is also close by and here you can fly over the trees on zip wires, ride karts through the forest, take pony rides or enjoy the many water slides.

For a more leisurely day out, there is the Jardins du Court d’Aron at St Cyr en Talmondais - great for young children - with an area for young animals to pet, tranquil walks around the large parkland area and summer shows with a Polynesian theme.

No visit to the Vendée would be complete without a trip to the Puy du Fou Theme Park - here you will be transported back in time to the age of the Gladiators, Vikings, Knights, Musketeers and there is also a fantastic Bird of Prey show, not to mention the spectacular evening show with over a 1000 participants!

La Rochelle and the Ile de Ré are within hours’ drive - with harbour side restaurants, boutique shops, winding streets and interesting architecture. La Rochelle has lots of festivals and street entertainment every evening in summer.

Further afield is the Marais Poitevin Regional Park - with miles of canals and pretty riverside villages - a relaxing day out - punting on the rivers and exploring the ruined abbeys nearby.

Sue, Howard & Rosie, Swansea. July/August 2017
We have enjoyed ourselves in this superb house. The house had everything we needed and more! Didn't use the games room, but made great use of the table tennis outside. One or two very minor problems sorted out by very quickly by Fannia who lives down the road and is very helpful; also Annette who is only a phone call away. We'd love to come back in the future.
PS: La Terri
ère Plage good for surfing and the Auberge de Court d'Aron is very good.

Jeff, Annabelle, Hamish, Andrew & Janet, Switzerland. August 2017
We had a wonderful stay. The house is lovely with a very nice private garden. We spent most of the time playing ping-pong! Curzon is a lovely classic village in a great location. All in all, a great place!

Emily, Jonathan, Thomas & Eleanor, Newbury. August 2017
We’ve had a super stay at your cosy and welcoming house. The pool, darts & ping-pong, as well as the other games & toys have kept the family entertained and the kitchen is well-stocked. The garden is lovely and private.
Curzon is an ideal base for visiting the area, as it’s so easy to get around – close to lots of attractions. We were with a 7 & 5 year old and would recommend Le Chateau des Aventuriers at Avrillé, Le Grand Défi for Accrobranche (Indian Forest is closer, but more difficult, probably 8 yrs plus), beaches at La Tranche sur Mer, La faute sur Mer & Les Sables d’Olonne, and a day trip to the Ile de Ré. We’ve had a lovely & relaxing fortnight.
