Details of the Farmhouse

Le Vieux Café is set in the beautiful Vendée countryside, in the small village of Lairoux. This is only a 10-minute drive to the cathedral town of Luçon where you will find many shops, supermarkets and restaurants. The safe sandy beaches of La Faute and La Tranche sur Mer are only 15km away. The area has an excellent hiking and cycling network.

The House contains many period features along with a modern fully equipped kitchen. There is also a private al fresco seating and BBQ area. In the extensive gardens you will find a 12 x 7 metre heated pool (shared with one other gite), a boules court and a large garden area to explore.

This property boasts lots of period features and at the turn of the 20th Century it was the hub of village life - being the local café and restaurant. The living room contains a large bookcase - with all types of holiday reading and there is also a laptop with secure wireless internet access. The sofa can also be used as an extra bed, as it folds out into a large sofa bed.

For guests with young children, we have stair gates both at the top and bottom of the stairway and we can also provide a cot, baby bath, changing mat and highchair.

The garden contains the large courtyard for parking, a grassy area for relaxation and a boules court for your amusement. A gentle slope then takes you down to the enclosed 12m x 7m heated swimming pool where you can relax in the sun. There is also a gym and large lower garden for playing ball or relaxing.

This holiday farmhouse in Lairoux is pet / dog friendly.
