Orchard View Gite, Champ Saint Père in the Vendée
The gîte is set on the edge of the road between the pretty towns of Mareuil-sur-Lay and Champ-St-Père and has views across a small lake to the front and into the garden orchard at the back. The terrace, garden and pool are all to the rear of the property (catching the sun all day!), so are not overlooked by neighbours, and there are large hedges on all sides of the garden for more privacy.
Lounge: There are two separate living areas in this gite. The first one has comfy sofas, a fireplace and a large flat screen Smart TV with Xbox. The second lounge is located to the side, up 3 steps and has a sofa, two armchairs and a TV with UK and French TV channels.
Games room: The garage has been converted into a games room for adults and older children and has a billiard table, dart board, table football table and a bar area for evening cocktails. The garage doors open up onto the patio terrace.
Kitchen: The kitchen has a breakfast table and 6 chairs and leads out to the patio terrace. The kitchen is equipped with an electric oven & gas hob, microwave and built in fridge.
Utility room: There is a separate area with the washing machine, tall freezer and a second fridge.
Bedrooms: There are 3 bedrooms on the first floor - two with double beds and one with 2 single beds. All bedrooms have plenty of storage space in wardrobes and chests of drawers. Please note that all bedrooms also have low beams across the centre ranging from 130cm to 150cm in height above the floor.
Bathroom: On the ground floor there is a bathroom with shower cubicle, full-sized bath, hand basin and a separate WC.
Children: Stair gates are available for young children, plus we have a selection of plastic cutlery and crockery.
Outside Space: The gîte has its own large private garden and orchard with fruit trees. There is a patio terrace with pergola next to the house, with a table and chairs. A built in charcoal BBQ is near the pergola. Sun loungers and relaxing chairs are set around the raised decked area near to the pool. The pool is 10m x 5m and has steps to one end (ranging from 1m to 1.7m deep). Please note that there is an alarm for the pool, but there is no fencing around the pool area, so this gíte may not be suitable for children under the age of 8 years old.
Parking: There is off-road parking on the gravel courtyard for up to 2 cars.
Dogs: 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 not suitable for guests with limited mobility or wheelchairs as all bedrooms are on the first floor and there are low beams in all bedrooms.
Orchard View Gîte is open from May until the end of September each year. In the 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 variable start days.
All bed linens and towels are provided with this rental, but please bring your own beach / pool towels.

Champ Saint Père and the Local Area
For your weekly shop, you can drive to the larger towns of Luçon, Mareuil-sur-Lay or Angles, where you will find many more supermarkets, a market hall, restaurants, bars and cafés. All are within a 15 minute drive.
Wine Tasting: Orchard View Gite is set in the heart of Vendée wine country! The surrounding rolling hills are dotted with vineyards producing our AOC labelled red, white and rosé wines. There is a local wine route that you can follow and pop in to many of the producers for a tasting and to buy the delicious wines! I recommend a visit to the Château at Rosnay!
Two of the main highlights of this area are the O'Gliss Water Park and the O'Fun Adventure Park - both in Moutiers-Les-Mauxfaits. Perfect for keeping the whole family entertained - with water slides, lagoon beaches, young children play areas, Zip wires, pony rides and so much more - you could easily spend a whole day at each park.
The beaches of the Southern Vendée are around 20 - 30 minutes drive away - depending upon which one you choose! La Tranche and La Faute for bustling seaside town, Veillon Plage for relaxing and building sandcastles, Les Roches for fossil hunting, Les Conches and Les Terrières for surfing or Les Sables D'Olonne for taking a walk along the long sandy beach.
The Château des Aventuriers at Avrillé has a treasure hunt around the grounds - perfect for children, and you can also visit the inside of the château too.
If you like hiking through forests, visiting zoos, karting, horse riding, cycling through quiet country lanes or just relaxing in a village restaurant, then Orchard View Gîte is for you!
The No.1 attraction in the Vendée is the amazing Puy du Fou Park - Gladiators, Knights of the Round Table, Vikings, birds of prey and a spectacular evening show - not to be missed!

Reviews for Orchard View Gite
A really nice cottage with a pool. We have been to O’Gliss water park and been to La Rochelle. In La Rochelle we went on a ‘Segways’ tour and climbed up 2 castles. We went to La Tranche Sur Mer and Jard Sur Mer; both well worth a visit. So is La Rochelle.

Merci beaucoup for a lovely stay..!! Amazing facilities (with the pool where we spent most of our time..!) Great Movie channels and the games room gave us more than enough to do.. Love that our dog was made to feel so welcome and he really enjoyed the ‘dog treats’ you left for him, as did we with the lovely welcome basket provided. Thank you Cath and Dave for our stay here and us making more happy family memories.”
