Overview

Wedding Venue Exclusive Recommended Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Ideal for Parties Stag/Hen Allowed

When staying at Le Logis Du Général you are not only living in a beautiful and elegant home but you are also part of a stunning 18th century estate with exquisite gardens and over 100-hectares of glorious parkland in the Vendée.

With a fascinating history, this house was once the home of a famous general during the Vendée wars of the French Revolution. The estate is now a classified national historic monument and includes an impressive château on the grounds just a short walk from the house.

There are ten bedrooms across Le Logis Du Général, nine of which are housed in the elegant main house and adjacent annexe with a tenth bedroom in a more simple studio next door. The interiors of the house and annexe are superb with beautiful furnishings, ornate decoration and antique features throughout. The owners have taken great care to ensure a high level of comfort in such historical surroundings.

The well-tended gardens are filled with rose covered borders and fine lawns, a romantic place to enjoy the tranquillity of this fantastic location.  Stroll along to the dazzling swimming pool, which can be heated on request, and enjoy long days with family and friends by the brilliant pool house which has been equipped with a kitchen, long dining table, Wi-Fi and music system.

There are endless activities for all ages whether playing tennis on the private court, French billiard or table tennis in the play room or a game of badminton or volleyball outside. You may simply prefer to venture into the vast parkland, passing woodland and ponds, appreciating the outstanding natural landscapes so typical of this region.

In the heart of the Vendée region, you are just minutes by car from a village with bakeries, shops and a restaurant or head to the delightful covered market in nearby Challons to pick up some delectable local produce.

Within half an hour you can be on one of the vast sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast in Saint-Jean-de-Monts or tasting grilled sardines Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie. Further south, Les Sables-d’Olonne is a delightful seaside town with a bustling seafront promenade whilst La Tranche-sur-Mer has 13km of sandy beaches backed by endless dunes.

For a spectacular day out drive to the enchanting island of Noirmoutier via the incredible causeway, where you will discover pine-backed beaches, rock pools and charming beach huts as well as some amazing sea-food in an idyllic setting.

The coastline offers endless water-based activities from sea-kayaking to kite-surfing whilst there are some spectacular walking and cycling trails both inland or by the Atlantic and nearby islands. There is both horse-riding and golf within a short drive or enjoy a peaceful day exploring the flora and fauna of the Marais Poitevin by boat before returning to the serene surroundings of the wonderful Le Logis Du Général.

What you should know…

  • The accommodation is spread across the main house, the annexe and a studio, each with a separate entrance
  • The tenth bedroom is in fact a studio with a living area, kitchenette and bunkbeds. The studio is far more simple in style compared to the rest of the home
  • The vast estate includes a stunning château (seen in the photo) which is no longer in use and ponds, which are mainly fenced off (child supervision is still recommended)

It’s an especially great area for cyclists with flat and beautiful trails across the island.
