Wisteria Cottage in Sigournais

Our two bedroomed holiday cottage is a converted 17th century barn lovingly restored to retain its character and history. Originally built before the Vendée wars but burned by troops during the revolution in the 18th century; evidence of this can be seen on the stones of the walls where the colour has turned from creamy yellow to a rose hue.

Wisteria Cottage is spacious with lots of natural light and is furnished to the highest standard. It can accommodate 6 guests in summer and 4 guests in winter. This is a perfect base for exploring the Vendée and its history - or simply to relax and enjoy rural France and its Atlantic coastline.

Wisteria Cottage has been rated as a 3 Star Property in France.

It is located near the village of Sigournais and its medieval château. The nearest large shopping centre is 10 minutes away in Chantonnay, although there is a small supermarket in Sigournais where you can buy virtually everything that you might need and this is only 5 minutes away. The Vendee is renowned for its excellent micro climate - as much sunshine as the Cote d'Azur - which usually means 5 to 10 degrees hotter than the UK.
