ST-JULIEN-DES-LANDES Château la Forêt

Vendee & Charente

Selected because of its unique location in the extensive grounds of a 19th century château. The present owners who inherited the site in 2003 have recently made dramatic improvements to the site so that it is now a comfortable, spot for a relaxing family holiday. The lovely old stone-faced outbuildings house many of the services and the surrounding parkland includes a forest of hundred year old oaks and several fishing lakes. It is tucked away in the heart of the Vendeen countryside 12km from the beaches at Brétignolles and walking distance of the village of St Julien-des-Landes.
