La Petite Maison des Figues, is a characterful and charming gite in a beautiful village. The gite is rustic, cosy and very well equipped. It is well placed, being just one hour from the sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast, and various amusement parks including Puy de Fou, Futuroscope, Ogliss aqua park, the Indian rain forest, as well as more local activities such as walking, cycling, horse riding and even go-karting. It is in easy reach of most major ports, and enjoys wonderful summer weather

The space
La Petite Maison des Figues is a characteristic gite, 200-300 years old, with old wooden beams and uneven walls! Thought to be an old bakers (boulangerie) because of the large bread oven still in situ in the lounge. There are 2 double bedrooms upstairs with a bright, cheerul shower room. Downstairs is the large character lounge beautifully decorated with leather reclining settee and armchairs, a television with English channels, and Wifi connection. There are a variety of games and puzzles available. The fitted kitchen is charming and well equipped including a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and washing machine. The entrance door to the gite is via the kitchen, with off road parking just next to the kitchen. Further parking is available nearby. Just off the kitchen is 'The snug', an extra bedroom furnished with a comfortable sofa bed and storage, with the downstairs toilet next to it. From the lounge is access to the newly renovated, sun trap courtyard, encircled with fig trees (hence the name). Facilities for Al fresco dining is available, along with a barbeque and sun loungers. There is also the use of Margaret' large garden, and two adult bikes (more if required) are also provided. Linen and bathroom towels are provided.

The Gite is old with quirky steps and steep stairs, making it too difficult for people with reduced mobility. We apologise in advance, but it would be impossible to address this, as the house is built up, on rocks.

Guest access
The Vendee is an easy drive from most cross channel ports - St Malo, Caen, Le Havre and Dieppe. Calais is a little further. St Malo for example is about three and half to four hours drive. There are also three airports within an hours drive from the gite - La Rochelle, Nantes and Poitiers.

Other things to note
The gite is cottage style, and while very safe, the stairs maybe considered steep by some people. Being a very old character gite there are also several steps. For the same reason we feel the gite would be unsuitable for young children. The gite has two main bedrooms and one shower (2 toilets) which ideally suits four guests, although there is a third room with a comfortable settee bed downstairs, we just like you to be aware that this third room is not as well equipped. We ask for a safety deposit of 150€ (or passport) at the beginning of your holiday and there is also a small charge of 40€ for cleaning the Gite at the end of you stay.

La petite Maison des Figues is a mother and daughter projet. Margaret is retired and lives in England and France, her home in France in next to the Gite, while Karen lives in France 5 minutes from the gite, and speaks French. We have had great fun finishing the renovation and decoration the gite to a high standard and in keeping with its rustic character.
