Les Chardonnerets

12 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.  Very big kitchen and covered terrace.  Private heated pool and grounds.

Created from a farmhouse and adjacent barn, our largest gite Les Chardonnerets provides an ideal holiday venue for large family parties and groups of friends. The property benefits from a private heated swimming pool, private grounds and plenty of space for everyone.

This very large gite is 35 minutes from La Rochelle and the Vendée beaches.

Located in the village of Mouzeuil St Martin, Les Chardonnerets is holiday rental property that is equally appealing to multi-generational and to all-adult groups.

Les Chardonnerets is a big property. Useable interior space amounts to over 400 square meters (about 4300 square feet). To view a floor-plan of Les Chardonnerets, please click on this link. The floor plan opens in a separate window and is useful when reading the following description of the property.

Fabulous!  The house, the pool, Julia and Jon! So difficult to find a venue that caters to five families & their children, Les Chardonnerets did just that.  The kitchen is superbly equipped, the bedrooms and bathrooms perfect.  What a fantastic holiday.  We will be back :-) !

The social heart of Les Chardonnerets is the large kitchen / dining area. The kitchen is carefully arranged to make catering for large groups easy, with two hobs, two large ovens, two dishwashers, ample fridge space and, of course, plenty of pans & crockery plus tables seating 24 in comfort

Outside, but next to the kitchen, is a large covered dining area with a view of the pool. This also has tables seating 24 (or more - we can arrange dining space for 40 here) with a gas BBQ and outdoor “kitchen” including a fridge for al fresco dining. A further charcoal BBQ is available. All facilities are for the the exclusive use of guests at Les Chardonnerets: Les Chardonnerets is not part of a gite complex and there are no other properties sharing the site.

Off from the kitchen is the smaller of the two sitting rooms. Seating 10, this has TV/DVD (including English language channels) and Hifi equipment plus bookcase and sideboard full of games & toys. An attractive oak staircase leads from here to five of the 12 bedrooms.

On the other side of the kitchen, a corridor leads through to the larger sitting room with space for 24. Here there is also TV and other entertainment plus WiFi internet access. Stairs lead up from here to five further bedrooms.

In between the kitchen and larger living room there is a utility room, which includes laundry facilities, and a downstairs shower room. In total the property has seven bath / shower rooms, three of which are en-suite.
