Property Summary

The original property has been divided into 3 separate entities, which are interchangeable as living accommodation and gites. Each of the 3 units has a kitchen/diner, sitting room and 2 bedrooms. All the rooms are very spacious. This property is currently run as a thriving gite business, so would suit those looking for that hard to find live work opportunity or the home could easily be adjusted to revert to a large and comfortable 6 bedroomed family property.

The home is set just 5 mins walk from the centre of Nieul sur l’Autise a pretty village typical of the region with some basic shops. Fontenay le Comte the former renaissance capital of Vendee and set beside the river offers a year-round Saturday morning market, shops, hyper-stores, hospital, restaurants and an active year-round events calendar. The stunning coast is less than an hours’ drive, while close by are miles and miles of small canals, punctuated by picturesque village to explore by foot, bike car or boat.

For those who need easy access to and from the UK, year-round low-cost flights are available at nearby La Rochelle (45 mins) or Nantes (1hr) The closest ferry ports are St Malo (3 hrs) Caen (3.5 hrs) or Roscoff for crossings to Plymouth & Eire (4.5hrs) making the home convenient for visiting guests, friends and family.
