The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The Poitou Charentes has a micro climate and is situated in the central part of western France, located between the Loire valley and Aquitaine. Its coastline is one of the sunniest areas in France.

We are situated between the Deux Sevres and Vienne departments of the Poitou Chrentes.

The capital of the Deux-Sèvres department is a classic old French town - Niort The old town is a sleepy ensemble of stone buildings dominated by a mediaeval castle overlooking the river Sèvre Niortaise .

The capital of the Vienne department Poitiers is an old hill-town with an attractive old centre. The city is most famous for its ancient churches, including the mediaeval frescoes in St. John's Baptistry, reputedly the oldest place of Christian worship in France, and the Notre-Dame la Grande church, one of the most famous and distinctive romanesque churches in France.

The coastal areas include the towns of La Rochelle, Rochefort and Royan and the islands of Oléron and Ile de Ré


Our nearest main town is Parthenay which is a medieval town and has many sites of interest and an outdoor market on a Wednesday. During the summer months there are numerous music and cultural festivals.

Come for the Christmas markets! Most of the big towns in the area have Christmas markets throughout December - especially Niort and Poitiers.

In the summer you must visit the gorgeous town of La Rochelle and, our favourite, the Ile de Ré which are only 1.5 hrs drive away.

"Fantastic Gite, wonderful location and super hosts, everything was perfect."

Fantastic Gite, immaculately clean, beautifully furnished and decorated. Susan and Terry were lovely and helpful hosts and left us a comprehensive welcome pack including some wonderful homemade cake and local cheese, they also added to this with a tasty fruit crumble one night and other bits and pieces during our stay, including a lovely meal on our last night. The garden is beautiful and ideal for relaxing with a good book. The area is peaceful and tranquil and ideal for cycling with lovely quiet roads, equally it has many places of interest to visit nearby including Poitiers and Parthenay.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We really enjoyed your company whilst you were with us and appreciate the constructive comments too - it helps us to improve what we provide for our future guests. As you know this is our first year for letting out Les Hortensias Gite and we really hope that you will be back again. Best Wishes Susan and Terry
