"Great place to stay and relax for 2 weeks in quiet location."

We stayed for 2 weeks, the owner were friendly and very helpful. Clean and well equipped accommodation. Quiet, relaxed location on outskirts of small village -just what we wanted. Good swimming pool - too far from beach really and you need car for supermarket but local spar was good.

Good holiday and would recommend for families.

"A lovely Gite - well equipped in a tranquil and relaxing setting - recommended"

A warm welcome from the owner on arrival and a few essentials in the fridge were a nice touch.

The gite is well equipped, very clean and nicely laid out with a large living/eating area, large bedrooms and the added bonus of an en-suite to the master.

The location was a sun trap and eating outside on the terrace each evening was the norm as it stayed warm well into the evening.

The swimming pool was spotless and a great size giving hours of fun for both adults and children with chairs and sun loungers available making sure that we could keep an eye on the children whilst they played inthe pool.

A tennis court on the property meant lots of family fun not to mention the trampoline and the safe and secluded gardens (both private and communal).

Location wise, we were only 20 minutes from Vouvant, 60 minutes from La Rochelle and lots of other lovely parts of the Vendee. An added bonus was that we were only a 10 - 15 minute walk from the village centre and its boulangerie, boucherie and Spar store meaning we could easily stock up on holiday essentials.

Overall, a great, relaxing holiday (even with two children in tow!) made even better by the above.

"Relaxing and tranquil location"

A lovely location which is exactly as it looks in the pictures. The gite is very private, simply furnished to a good standard. There were four of us in our party and there was plenty of room, however, we felt there wasn't enough lounge seating for the six people the gite could sleep. The swimming pool and tennis court are fantastic and we struggled to tear ourselves away.
The location is a little remote - there is very little in the village and the coast is a good hours drive away. The owner lives on site which is a bonus as help or assistance is available if needed. A wonderful welcome pack is provided. A long drive down from the ports but well worth it if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday.
