Set in the stunning Bocage region of the Vendée in western France, Gîte Sous les Étoilés is a wonderful retreat in tranquil surroundings with easy access to a range of activities.  Whether you want to kick back and relax or explore this beautiful part of France this is a wonderful location.

We're part of the commune of La Chapelle aux Lys, which is designated as 'Village Étoile' which means at night we have very dark skies and spectacular views of the stars.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all you need so you can settle in as soon as you arrive.  There's a cooker with induction hob and oven, microwave, toaster, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. You'll also find basic essentials such as kitchen towel, tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher and laundry tablets etc. to get you set up from the off.

There is capacity for 8 guests, with three bedrooms (all doubles), with one also including a sofa bed suitable for a further 2 people.  They are finished with crisp white bed linen and towels and hairdryers are also provided.



Set over one acre, the garden is a haven of tranquility.  There is room to hide away, play games, explore the wonderful array of flora and fauna, the flowing ponds and fishes.  Lose yourself and laze your day away.

The garden is an acre set in wonderful countryside surrounded by rolling fields, the only visitors are the occasional cow poking its nose over the hedge.  The pool is 10m x 5m with sun loungers, with a decked area for sunbathing, BBQ's and general chilling.
