Angles, Vendee, Pays de la Loire
Gite des Forges is a renovated old farm building set on a quiet lane, yet only 500 metres from the centre of the pretty town of Angles, with its 11th century church and busy shops and restaurants. There is even a local wine merchant next door, so you can taste many of the locally produced wines.

The gite has been sympathetically restored and has many original beams on show. There is a south facing garden where you can catch the sun's rays all day and there are sun loungers and patio furniture for your use!

The house has a compact living and dining area along with a well equipped kitchen with built-in oven, induction hob and washing machine.

There are two bedrooms - one with a double bed and the other with three single beds.

Outside there is a charcoal barbecue and patio table and chairs. There is also off-road parking.

A really lovely property in the heart of the busy village with all amenities and excellent restaurants within a short walking distance. There were just two things missing from the well equipped accommodation - wine glasses and a parasol, although the shady acacia tree certainly gave us cover for all meals outside. The Gites is suitable for families of all...

Management response:

Many thanks for your great review! I'm not sure what has happened to the wine glasses, as there were some at the beginning of the season!

We really enjoyed our stay. The Gite is equipped to a good standard particularly the kitchen. The outside seating area has a wonderful Mediterranean feel to it and the off road parking area is very useful. The wi-fi and TV facilities were very good too. Angles is a wonderful village with good local facilities and markets and the Gite is...

About the neighbourhood
The town of Angles dates back to the 11th Century, and still has its old church and Castle tower (Moricq). There are approximately 1600 inhabitants and in the centre you will find several shops - bakeries, butcher, fishmonger, florist, banks, bars, restaurants and a twice-weekly market, plus many fêtes and festivals throughout the summer months.

The house is set in a quiet lane with a Wine Cave (cellar) next door - the owner is very friendly and may invite you in to sample the local wines!

The area is very flat, so is ideal for walking and cycling holidays and the surrounding countryside is very picturesque with many canals, rivers and reclaimed marshlands - teeming with wildlife and a haven for migrating birds.

There are over 20 miles of sandy beaches nearby where you can surf, body-bo...
