Escape to these perfect French rural retreats

Gites 79 has two beautiful gites situated on the border between the Deux-Sèvres and Vendée departments in western France that are available for holiday rental.

Known for its micro-climate and boasting up to 2,400 hours of sunshine each year, the area is perfect for a relaxing family holiday but close to many major attractions..

Gite des Roses is the quintessential French shuttered family home, sleeping up to 8 people. The house divides into two, so it can either be rented at a lower rate for a family of four, or the entire house can be taken for 8 people. Its proximity to Puy du Fou, Futuroscope and the west coast beaches makes it the perfect base for exploring this diverse region.

Gite des Chirons is a secluded, high-specification conversion of an old forge with thick granite walls and spacious accommodation for up to 6 people. The house is nestled in a tiny hamlet west of Moncoutant, and its peaceful and idyllic location offers a relaxing rural retreat to recharge, refuel, relax and rekindle.

Both holiday homes are only 3.5-4 hours from the ferries at Caen & St Malo and only 75 minutes from Nantes, Poitiers and La Rochelle airports.
