Holiday Home Description

Le Cottage Bleu is set in the pretty hamlet of Les Voureuils, only an 18km drive to the beaches of the southern Vendée and a 10 minute drive to Luçon - with lots of shops, bakeries, bars and restaurants.

A perfect cottage for couples or family holidays to France as there is a large swimming pool (up to 29 degrees in the middle of summer!) and lots of space to run around or relax under the shade of the mature trees. Outside of the cottage is a large terrace with a dining table, chairs, parasol and barbecue - a perfect spot for al-fresco meals after a trip to one of the many local markets.

The cottage is set on one level and has a large open plan lounge / diner, plus a fully equipped kitchen. In the lounge, there are three comfy sofas and the TV has all of the UK Free-to-Air channels. WI-Fi is available too.

The two bedrooms are next to each other - one has a double bed and patio doors out to the terrace and the other has two single beds. There is plenty of wardrobe space in each room.

A cot and high chair can be provided for younger children.

The pool area has lots of sun loungers and comfortable chairs for relaxing in after a long day of playing on the beach. A security fence can be set up around the pool if you have small children as a safety measure.

The owners of Le Cottage Bleu, Peter & Hazel, live on site and they love to welcome guests into their little piece of paradise in the Vendée countryside - they often invite guests over for a glass of wine and a chat and are very knowledgeable about the local area - what to do, where the best restaurants are etc.. They are also very discreet, and if guests are 'at home' they never use the pool, so you will have it all to yourselves! Their favourite thing about the garden - they love to watch the many birds and squirrels visit to eat at the bird-feeding table!

The Cottage is set in a quiet country lane, with very little passing traffic. There is private off-road parking on the property for two guest cars and the Cottage is open from Mid-May until the end of October each year.

All bed linens and towels are provided, including pool/beach towels.

Lairoux and the Surrounding Area

Lairoux is set on the edge of the Marais Poitevin Wetlands that straddle the Vendée and Charente-Maritime areas of France. There are some lovely country lanes nearby for walking or cycling - and one of the local routes takes you down to the Marais Communal - a natural flood plain that is teeming with wildlife throughout the year - so if you love birdwatching, nature walks, animal spotting or just being out in the lovely countryside, then this is the holiday cottage for you.

For guests who love Water Parks - you won't be disappointed, as the O'Gliss Water Park is only a 15 minute drive away - open in the summer months and a full day out - this shouldn't be missed! Also not to be missed is the Indian Forest Adventure Park which is just a short drive away - a great day out for families & adults alike. Activities include - amusement park, water jumps, tree climbing, zip lines and many more games for children.

Head along the coast for miles and miles of sandy beaches - with La Faute sur Mer less than 20 minutes away. Many of the local beaches have won the 'Pavillon Bleu' /Blue Flag beach awards - as they are so clean and respect the local wildlife! You can choose a different beach each day - there are good ones for surfing, body-boarding, sailing, sand castles, rock pools or just relaxing in the sun.

A little further afield (1 hour away) is the Grand Parc du Puy du Fou - a fantastic day out for all the family - with Gladiators, Vikings, Birds or Prey and so much more!

You can also visit La Rochelle, the Ile de Ré, les Sables d'Olonne and Fontenay le Comte - all within an hour and perfect for street entertainment, bustling markets and lots of restaurants.
