House in La Daviere, Le Boupere, Fontenay-le-Comte, Vendee, France - Situated In A Peaceful Rural Location But Within 5 Mins Walk Of The Local Supermarket
About John Kane
We have always loved France, the French people and the French way of life. We have holidayed extensively in France and particularly liked the Vendee area. We stayed in some "interesting" holiday homes which were not what we expected or wanted. When we finally got the opportunity to do something about it we bought the holiday home we did want. It is a large house with a large garden set in a little hamlet just outside Le Boupere. It is a very tranquil place. We have had all sorts of guests, large families, small families, couples and groups of friends. They have all had 1 thing in common though, they all had agreat holiday and couln't believe how friendly the locals were.
Why John Kane chose Le Boupère
We holidayed extensively in France and particulary liked the Vendee. It is a beautiful part of the country and very peaceful, whilst being within 10km of some large towns (Les Herbiers & Pouzage). It is also within a 5 minute walk of Le Boupere which is a pretty little village with a fortified church. It is a 1 hour drive from the Atlantic coast and the Isle De Re is well worth a visit as is La Rochelle. It is also only a 10 minute drive from the fantastic Puy du Fou. We usually fly into Nantes and hire a car but it is only a 3 hour drive from St. Malo by car.
What makes this House unique
It really is a home from home. There is satellite TV and DVD's in the comfortable lounge. The Dining Room has a solid oak typically French table and lots of chairs. The kitchen has a hob, oven, dishwasher, microwave, kettle and a toaster. In the cellar there is a washing machine and a tumble dryer. Outside there is a double garage, a large outdoor table and chairs under a sun shade. There is a lawned area with flower beds to the front and adjacent to that there is a small orchard. We let one of the neighbours graze his horse in another area of the garden. 1 mile down the road is a riding school who give you discount if you tell them you are staying locally. It really is a home from home, it is our home and for your holiday it is your home.

Excellent house in quiet location
This was a perfect house for our family holiday. The location was quiet and easily accessible to many places. We had everything we could want and the children had a large garden to play and explore in. Would recommend staying here and we would like to come back again.
Thanks for the good review. We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday. We tried to think of everything people could want whilst they are on holiday and it sounds like we managed it. It would be lovely if you came back again

location a recommander
We are so glad you liked the house and thank you for respecting it. You were great guests and we would be very happy for you to stay again.
Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez aimé la maison et merci de la respecter. Vous étiez d'excellents invités et nous serions très heureux que vous restiez encore.
Très bon séjour pour notre groupe de randonneurs
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. La maison était telle que décrite dans l'annonce et les photos que Mr Kane m'avait envoyé.
Nous pourrions mettre juste une petite remarque.
Signaler, dans l'annonce, que la télévision ne propose que des chaînes anglophones ( pour des francophones, cela peut gêner).
Il serait aussi intéressant de traduire les consignes en français pour les personnes qui ne maîtrisent pas l'anglais.
I am glad you enjoyed your holiday. I assumed that the satellite TV had French TV channels as as well, I will see if I can find French channels and identify them. Getting the instructions in French is a very good idea. Our guests used to be mainly English but now we are getting more French Guests so French instructions would be better.
Je suis heureux que vous ayez apprécié votre jour férié. J'ai supposé que la télévision par satellite avait des canaux de TV français comme aussi, je verrai si je peux trouver des canaux français et les identifier. L'accomplissement des instructions dans le français est une très bonne idée. Nos invités ont eu l'habitude d'être surtout l'anglais mais maintenant nous recevons plus d'Invités français donc les instructions françaises seraient mieux.
Très bon sejour
La maison est conforme à nos attentes. Les chambres sont spacieuses. L’accès à aux clés très pratique.
Idéal pour visiter le Puy du Fou. A refaire..

I am glad you liked the house and enjoyed visiting the Puy du Fou
The Vendée enjoys one of the sunniest climates in France. The sublime beaches of the Vendée are within easy reach (60 minutes), and are some of the best in Europe. Clean, with shallow, gently sloping seas, these are particularly suitable for families.
Surfing is big in the Vendée, especially in the south, the area around La Tranche and Longeville.
