About hazel nicholls
We have lived here since 2005. After years of hard work renovating our properties we have settled in well and we all really love our life in the Vendee. We live in the adjacent property in order to be on hand for garden and pool maintenance. We do not intrude but we are there if you have any questions.
hazel nicholls purchased this Barn in 2005
Why hazel nicholls chose Oulmes
When we first bought the property we saw the potential and have renovated the barn into a large Gite and expanded our home into two other outbuildings. The Vendee is reknowned for its sunny mild climate. Our location is perfect being very close to the Marais Poitevin (or Venise Verte, a network of canals reclaimed from the sea) and Mervent Forest both lovely for walks, cycle rides, & boat trips. Nearby historical buildings, Chateaux, Abbeys and plenty of villages of character. The coast, beaches & islands of both the south Vendee & the Charente Maritime and beautiful La Rochelle are 1 hour drive. We love the edge of village location enabling us to walk to local amenities including a Post Office, Hairdresser, Boulangerie for freshly baked bread, pastries and crossants. A bar with outside seating selling newspaper and cigarettes. A restaurant with another bar complete with Pizzeria (eat in or take away) & a lovely terrace outside.
What makes this Barn unique
The property is completely self contained with its own entrance driveway and parking. There is a totally secluded separate rear garden with splash pool, sun terrace, bbq and dining furniture. Steps up lead to the sun terrace and the lawned garden. Entrance from the conservatory or bottom kitchen door to the adjacent private large heated pool and open barn, bar, games and seating area. All facilities are totally private for your party only. We loved our property on first sight. We saw huge potential in lots of old buildings & outdoor space ripe for improvement & conversion. Over time we have converted the large barn and the other outbuildings into additional accommodation.. We have installed a large inground heated swimming pool, and along with large shady gardens, a children's play area, an undercover games area (Boules, table tennis, darts) with bar & seating this completes our setup. We are now in a position to offer private unshared facilities for parties of 10/12 in the Gite .
