The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The Vendée is reputed to be the second sunniest region in France after the south coast areas.

There are miles of sandy beaches, as well as flat marshlands and rolling countryside areas - something for everyone!

Le Cerisier is a 40 minute drive from the beaches at La Tranche Sur Mer and port of La Rochelle. It is also only 20 minutes to Puy du Fou Medieval Theme Park, with its spectacular night time light show. The Marais Poitevin is only 30 minutes away. The towns of Fontenay Le Comte ,with its Go-Kart track and La Roche Sur Yon, with great shopping, Ice-Skating, ten pin bowling and an indoor swimming pool are all only 30 minutes away.

St Juire Champgillon

Le Cerisier is situated in a small hamlet near to the picturesque village of St. Juire Champgillon. The village has a bar and restaurant serving regional dishes both for lunch and dinner. There is also a hairdressers and small grocery shop, along with a bakery van that visits during the day.

During the summer months there is a market every Sunday morning where you can buy local produce and sample the local wines, aperitifs etc. The children can take a ride around the village in a cart pulled by the village donkey - great fun!

It is an ideal place to ride your cycles or to walk through the quiet lanes and take in the breathtaking scenery. Pack a picnic and stop off at the lake in St Martin Lars and just let time pass you by.

"unattractive and uncomfortable gite"

We booked this gite for a two week holiday in July and were very disappointed upon arrival. This property is road side, a fact that was not clear from the advert. While it is a rural road it is a rout… More

Andrew and I were very disappointed to receive your negative comments about Le Petit Recoin Gite.
This gite has always been a favourite with our guests as it was in a previous life a cattle shed which has been tastefully converted into accommodation, the gite has exposed beams and stone walls, a true gite rurale, we have always had very good reviews - a book is in the gite with positive customer comments from visitors for the past 11 years, including 2013.
We live in a rural location; there are fields right around us with sunflowers, wheat or corn depending on the year. We do get to experience true rural farming life with Tractors and Combines working in the fields, but the children love this, it gives them great fun watching them work.
The complex is set in approximately 2 acres of gardens, with plenty of room to sit and relax and look at the surrounding countryside, we have apple trees, walnut tree and hazlenut trees offering good shaded areas when necessary. The pool area is fully enclosed to the French standards, and always enjoyed by both the children and adults. We have a trampoline, wooden playhouse and swings and slide area for the kids to play in, so they are kept well entertained.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a range cooker and hood (brand spanking new this year), fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave, toaster, kettle and coffee machine, cutlery, crockery etc.
Upon arrival I do say to all of our guests that if there is anything that I have forgotten or they need, to just come and tell us - it is one of the advantages of us living on site!! I shall do my best to help wherever possible - we like to think that we are very approachable and that we are here to make your holiday enjoyable.
It was very regrettable that there seemed to be a lack of communication; however, once we were made aware of your feelings we immediately offered you one of our other gites, hoping that this would better suit your requirements; however you refused to look at them and chose to leave which is beyond our control.

"Fab holiday"

Stayed there with husband and 2 young children, and the gites was ideal. Good facilities, including the washing machine, super pool and plenty for the children to do on site. Ruth and Andy made us incredibly welcome, were a font of local knowledge, and their children were great. Super holiday, and I could not recommend highly enough.
