Gite du Lys, Petosse in the Vendée

Gite du Lys Holiday Cottage is set in the pretty village of Petosse - one of the 'Wine Route' areas of the Vendée and only a 10 minute drive to the renaissance town of Fontenay-le-Comte.

The gîte has its own private garden and is tucked away in a quiet corner of the village. A perfect spot of relaxing and sunbathing in the garden.

The lounge has two sets of patio doors that open out onto the terrace and garden. Inside there is a comfy leather sofa and other chairs, a dining table for up to six guests and a TV with UK free-to-air TV channels. There is also a bookcase with DVDs and some holiday reading material.

The kitchen has a central breakfast table and chairs and a wood burner for the cooler winter months. The kitchen is well equipped with a washing machine, dishwasher, gas cooker & hob, microwave and fridge/freezer.

The bedrooms are full of character - with exposed stone walls and original oak beams. One of the bedrooms is located on the ground floor and has a double bed, lots of wardrobe space and views out to the garden. The second bedroom is on the first floor and this is a large family bedroom with a double bed and two single beds, plus wardrobe and chest of drawers.

On the ground floor there is a shower room with shower cubicle, small hand basin and WC - this is located next to the double bedroom. There is also a second bathroom on the first floor - with full sized bath (with hand held shower attachment), hand basin and WC. This is next to the family bedroom.

Children: A cot, high chair and stair gates are available for young children, plus we have a selection of plastic cutlery and crockery. The garden is walled and fenced on all sides for your security.

Outside Space:
The gîte has its own private garden - laid mainly to lawn and with a boules court and badminton net - lots of fun for all of the family! There is a picnic table and benches, a gas BBQ, sun loungers and a terrace in front of the lounge.

Parking: There is off-road parking in front of the cottage for up to 2 cars.

Well-behaved family pet dogs are welcome and there are lots of quiet country lanes and walking trails to explore nearby.

Accessibility: The gîte is suitable for guests with limited mobility, as there is a bedroom and shower room on the ground floor, however, it is not suitable for wheelchair users as there is a gravel courtyard leading to the house, plus the ground floor bedroom has a step down to the entrance.

Gîte du Lys is open all year and in summer, holidays will need to start and end on a Saturday, with a 7 night minimum stay. Out of high season, we can be more flexible - with a minimum of 3 night stay and variable start days - including long term lets of up to 90 days.

All bed linens and towels are provided with this rental, but please bring your own beach towels and cot bedding.

The owners of this gîte live in the main house on site - having their own private entrance, parking and garden.

Petosse and the Local Area

Gîte du Lys is set in the pretty village of Petosse, one of the five territories within the Fief Vendéen wine area - so a spot of wine tasting would be in order when you visit! There is a bread machine within walking distance too, so you would be able to pick up your morning baguette.

For shopping, the large town of Fontenay-le-Comte is only a 10 minute drive away - and here you will find lots of supermarkets, a bustling twice weekly market spilling out onto the streets, several restaurants and cafés, plus lots of entertainment in the summer months.

The Mervent Forest is less than 20 minutes away and you can spend the day exploring the forest, hiking around the lake, canoeing, visiting the Natur'Zoo or walking up to the lookout point in the centre of the village - overlooking the lake and hills.

Vouvant is close by too - named one of the 'plus beaux villages de France' a few years ago - with a medieval tower, ramparts, a small lake, grotto and so many pretty streets to wander through - all very photogenic.

The Marais Poitevin network of canals and abbeys is about 30 minutes away and makes for a relaxing day out - being punted along a canal by a guide, sitting in a canal-side café or visiting one of the magnificent abbeys such as Maillezais.

No visit to the Vendée is complete without a visit to the Puy du Fou Park - with its amazing shows bringing history to life - Gladiators, Knights of the Round Table, Vikings and so much more!

La Rochelle is less than an hour away and here you can visit the Aquarium, go boutique shopping in the trendy central streets, taste the locally produced cheeses and charcuterie in the Market Halls and dine in one of the many restaurants that line the old port. In summer, the harbour area is alive with street entertainers and has a real buzz about it! You can also take a boat trip to the Ile de Ré, Ile d'Aix or around Fort Boyard.

There are so many more attractions in the area too: O'Gliss Water Park, O'Fun Adventure Park, Karting at Fontenay, Park Pierre Brun in the Mervent Forest and so much more..

The beaches of the Southern Vendée are within 45 minutes drive - they are long and sandy and are perfect for a day splashing in the waves, learning to surf or relaxing with a good book. The bustling seaside towns of La Faute-sur-Mer and La Tranche-sur-Mer are well worth a visit.
