“lovely peaceful setting, great gites and friendly owners”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2013

Anita and Mark were helpful throughout the booking process and welcoming on arrival - the little extras (wine/eggs) were lovely after our long drive! We rented both gites for us, our children and grandparents and both were comfortable, spacious and cool on the hot days and nights! The immediate surroundings were lovely - frogs lullaby at night! Both gites have washing machines and the larger one has a dishwasher which was an unexpected luxury. Both gites had tv with British channels which was useful after a busy day. The pool was fantastic as was all the outdoor space which we had full use of - table tennis, badminton, boules - BBQ and outdoor seating area. Lots to see and do for all ages - Futuroscope is the big attraction if you are into theme parks but Parthenay, Poitier, Saumur, Thour, La Rochelle and Isle de Re are all within easy drives and Parthenay has three fab supermarkets and lovely bistro cafes by the town square. We have stayed in lots of areas of France and this area is one to return to, very verdant (sunflowers in abundance) but climate is definitely as good as you would get further south. Mark and Anita were perfect hosts, they welcomed us, let us know where they were if needed and then let us get on and enjoy the gites/grounds and we never felt that their being the 'owners on site' was an issue at all, in fact quite the opposite they really gave us the freedom of their lovely property without intrusion. We had exclusive use of the pool too which was very much appreciated. Overall a great holiday and with nothing negative to say about the experience at all - get booked up quick!!

“A comfortable gite in an idyllic rural setting”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2013

The gite is in a very rural location, but only 8 miles from Parthenay. Anita and Mark are excellent owners, always ready with advice on interesting places to go in the area. We travelled by motorbike, so it was very helpful to us that Anita and Mark bought some groceries in advance for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Particularly enjoyed visiting St Martin de Re and Le Marais de Poitevin. We are hoping to visit again in 2014.

“Our 2nd visit, Blissful peace and quiet, great place forkids to play safely”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2012

We stayed at Mark and Anita's place last year and enjoyed it so much that we came back this year with another family. Weather was great. The pool and massive garden/grounds keep the kids busy. The house is well equipped with all the usual plus satellite and wifi. Our hosts are very nice, helpful and discreet. We hardly noticed they were there. We went away to get away from it all and succeeded.

“It was perfect !”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2011

It was really nice, the house is confortable and the swimming pool so great but the best is Mr and Mrs Wilson wich are here everytime we need. In few words, it was great, thanks a lot. Ps : Sorry for my poor english, i'm just a french guy :)

Thank you for your lovely comments. It was wonderful meeting all of you and we hope to see you again one day.

“Relaxing and fun holiday with great owners”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2011

We really enjoyed our holiday at La Metairie. It was very secure for our children who had a fabulous time and loved the ducks, chicks, cats and the very friendly dog. The pool as well as the table tennis and badminton facilities were great to keep everybody entertained. Mark and Anita couldn't have been more helpful and gave us plenty of advice on where to go and what to do. The gite was great and contained everything we needed. Shopping in Parthenay was also convenient. A great family holiday!
