La Tavellerie is a big secluded farmhouse suitable for two family or extended family holidays.  It comfortably accommodates 10 people.  It is very quiet and peaceful and surrounded by its own land, including a small wood that children enjoy playing in.  The house was restored 5 years ago and has central heating and plentiful hot water.  It is comfortable and tastefully decorated.   Terraces on the South East and South West sides provide sun traps and should one need shade there are shady trees under which one can be cool.  The shady area overlooks the valley beyond.  The pool (12×4 meters) is surrounded by paving and a high fence with a locable gate so children cannot gain unsupervised access.  

The climate in the Vendee is generally hot in summer but not so hot that you can\’t enjoy being outside.  The winters are mild.  The Vendee \’bocage\’ area is quiet, wooded and rural and is relatively unspoilt.  There are interesting historical sites to visit and good restaurants in villages nearby.  The coast is an hour\’s drive West, La Rochelle is about one and a quarter hour\’s drive South and the Loire valley about one and a half hour\’s drive North.
