Les Peupliers borders the River Yon Nature Reserve, an area of outstanding beauty. Our nearest beach is Longeville, which is approximately 20 minutes drive from the villa, is great for water sports and very safe for young children. Beautiful, unspoilt beaches also at Bourgenay, La Tranche-sur-mer, Les Sables and many others. Our favourite is 'La Terrier', which is part of the stretch at La Tranche and has a fantastic surfing beach, great beach bars, water sports and is never too crowded.
Built in a traditional Vendeene style, Les Peupliers is situated in the unspoilt hamlet of La Baffardiere, which forms part of a protected area of outstanding natural beauty, within the River Yon Nature Reserve. The property sits in a quiet lane with no through traffic, from where there are many walks and cycle rides through wooded lanes and paths down to the River yon. The pretty village of Le Champs St Pere is only a short drive or bike ride away, where you will find a supermarket with petrol station, pharmacy, bakery, bar and restaurant and a market in the village square in Thursday mornings. 20 minutes to the North of Le Champs St Pere is the thriving university town of La Roche Sur Yon, and equidistant to the South is the historic, cathedral town of Lucon. The beautiful city of La Rochelle and exclusive Ile de Re are under 1 hour away.
Guests have sole use of the entire house, gardens and pool.

Our neighbours are lovely and we have never had any complaints from them. However we respectfully ask guests to observe "quiet time" after 10pm on week days.
We are a family of 5 who live in the Peak District in Derbyshire. We chose to buy a holiday home in the vendee area of France because we love the combination of peaceful, unspoiled countryside alongside miles of beautiful uncrowded beaches. It's the perfect place to relax, but we also like being able to dip into the more 'touristy' areas when the fancy takes us! The villa is where we spend most of our holiday time and is furnished and equipped to a very high standard.
