About this location

The Pays de la Loire region

Le Gite Tranquille is set on the edge of the peaceful village of La Jousselinière near La Chapelle Themer, only 7km from Sainte Hermine, which has many shops, restaurants and bars. The village of Thiré is only 2km away, where there is a bar & pizzeria open nightly.

The house is in a rural area surrounded by fields and forests - perfect for walking or cycling and the climate is warm - the Vendee is the 2nd sunniest region in France!

The beaches of the Southern Vendee are only a 45 minute drive away and there are many tourist attractions all within an hour's drive.

La Chapelle-Themer

Le Gite Tranquille lives up to its name, and you will find many a quiet country lane to walk or cycle along - you will be able to bird watch en route with many birds of prey and migratory birds nesting in the area - we'll even provide the bikes for your days out!

Boating and fishing are available nearby on the lake at St Martin Lars or in the Forest of Mervent. For the more energetic guests, there is horse riding or a swimming pool within 20 minutes and the beaches of the southern Vendée are only 45 minutes drive away.

The Theme Park of Puy du Fou is only a 30 minute drive away and the Marais Poitevin is close by too.

"Tres tranquille"

Le Gite tranquille was certainly well named. Setting was beautiful, very rural and peaceful. Never heard so much birdsong or seen so many butterflies in one place before.

Welcome was very warm and gite supplied with everything you could need. Martin and Vicky (the owners) were very helpful and kind without being at all intrusive. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Accommodation was very clean and private garden was good

You do need to use a car to reach any shops but if you do not have your own a car is available for you to use.

Would happily stay there again.
