Cypress Barn, Dompierre-sur-Yon in the Vendée
There are gates at the entrance of the grounds, with private off-road parking in front of the barn on a gravelled driveway.
You enter the Barn through the large sliding doors to the right, and you will see an impressive hallway with lots of storage cupboards and a WC.
Passing through the double doors in the hall, you enter the double height lounge diner with its exposed stone walls and solid oak beams. A wood burner with a long chimney stack sits in the middle of the lounge - the perfect centrepiece for this barn. There is a large flat screen Smart TV, with French TV channels built in, and the ability to log on with your own Netflix account for UK programs. There is a Bose speaker and Wi-Fi in the barn so that you can stay connected during your holiday.
To the right of the lounge is a library area, with lots of books to keep you entertained. There is also a desk, so if you need to work during your holiday, then you have a separate space in which to concentrate!
The long dining table is to the rear of the lounge, and has quick access to the kitchen.
The kitchen has been newly installed to a very high standard and has an electric oven, induction hob, dishwasher, kettle, toaster and Nespresso coffee maker. There is a large island unit with bar stools and behind that, there is a bank of long built in cupboards containing all the crockery and a microwave.
A utility room is located to the side of the kitchen - with a large fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.
The kitchen has access to the patio terrace.
To the other side of the kitchen you will find the master bedroom, with double bed, lots of storage space, access to the terrace and an en suite bathroom. The bathroom is fitted with a full-sized roll top bath, double hand basins, heated towel rail, WC and double shower/wet room.
Heading back to the lounge, there is a second bedroom with two single beds, plus an en suite shower room. This bedroom has Velux windows in the ceiling (with remote control blinds).
On the far side of the lounge is a doorway to the huge games room - an amazing space for your children to play - with lots of toys, board games and books for all ages. There is a large sofa in the games room that can convert into a sofa bed if required.
The second double bedroom is behind the games room and has a double bed, wardrobe and a separate shower room with shower cubicle, hand basin and WC.
The outside space is perfect for family holidays! There is a large tiled patio terrace with dining table and chairs, charcoal barbecue, and sofa & armchairs for relaxing!
The 8m x 4m pool (unheated) is open from May until the end of September. It has steps along one side and is 1.5m deep throughout. Please note that there is only a 50cm wooden fence surrounding the pool, so this may not be suitable for families with young children.
The garden is over 5000m2 and is laid mainly to lawns - lots of space to run around and play ball games. There are several fruit trees dotted around and at the far end of the garden is a small lake that is fenced off for the security of your children, but it is accessible.
All accommodation is located on the ground floor, so this barn may be suitable for guests with limited mobility, but is not accessible for wheelchair users as there are small steps up and down between several rooms.
Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome.
This barn is in an ideal location for families - with plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy their holiday - yet within an hour of many of the major tourist attractions of the Vendée. The barn has good motorway connections near La Roche sur Yon and the airport at Nantes is only 45 minutes away.

Dompierre-sur-Yon and the Local Area
The beaches at Les Sables d'Olonne and Bretignolles sur Mer are only 45 minutes away - both are perfect for families - with miles of sand, rock pools to explore and a 'seaside town' atmosphere with lots of cafés, restaurants and souvenir shops.
The O'Gliss Water Park and the O'Fun Adventure Park are around 40 minutes away and are not to be missed if you enjoy water slides and zip wires!
The main attraction of the Vendée is the Puy du Fou Park (45 minutes drive), and no holiday to the area would be complete without at least one visit to this amazing park! You will see Vikings, Gladiators, Medieval Knights, the best bird of prey show and a fantastic evening show with fireworks and over 1000 cast members!
For a more tranquil day out, think about visiting the Marais Salant near to Les Sables d'Olonne - for a boat trip along the river followed by a demonstration on how to make salt!
There are so many attractions in the Vendée - you will need at least two weeks to see most of it!!
