This 18th Century farmhouse Gite has 5 bedrooms comfortably sleeping up to 12 people. It has been sympathetically renovated and blends the charm of old French Country living with modern day convenience. Set in a hectare of private wooded gardens with a small lake, Le Cedre Gite offers peace and tranquillity without isolation. The inner courtyard includes a fenced off area with an interesting pool including a separate children's pool and a fully equipped sunbathing terrace. Surrounding the house are various terraces and patios, perfect for a moment of solitude, sunbathing or eating "Al Fresco ", containing ample garden furniture and a BBQ to help you enjoy the outdoor life that this exceptional climate supports
Le Cedre is located in the South Vendee, in an area known as the Poitou Charente, which, along with the Charente Maritime, enjoys a microclimate producing 2400-2600 hours of sunshine each year, making it one of the sunniest regions of France.
The A83 Autoroute passes only 5 kms from the house and offers great connections to the ferry ports and the international airports at Nantes and Poitier. Le Cedre Gite is also only 47 kms from   La Rochelle airport.
