Further details indoors

We try to make our guests feel this is their home during their stay. We therefore provide those useful things that are difficult in small quantities - salt, pepper, cooking/olive oil, kitchen foil etc. We provide all domestic towels and linen and also beach/pool towels. We have found this gite is very popular... the twin room is very large ..so we are very happy to provide an extra bed to accommodate an extra person if needed

We have had enquiries to bring " Granny" and we are happy to offer accommodation in the main house ... so that they can have " privacy" .. but join the family during the day !

Further details outdoors

Large shared garden (almost 1 acre), with swings, boules court, and ample parking. Great walking and cycling locally. Golf half an hour away by car. The gite has both bedrooms opening on to a terrace.... just a short walk to the swimming pool....

Location description from owner

The Pays de la Loire region

Known for warm dry summers (3 days' rain in 4 months in 2009), the Vendee is popular as a holiday destination, with visitors coming from the UK, Belgium, Holland and Germany, as well as from within France. The landscape is essentially rural, with rolling countryside, mainly below 220 metres elevation.

Vouvant

Warm summers, long (and can be fairly hot (38C) days). Lots of history. This was once "English" Aquitaine - Queen Eleanor's home at Neuil sur l'Autize is only 30km away. The Venise Verte (the drained fens) are also an interesting tourist attraction, with trips in powered craft, canoes and punts. There is a good bar/restaurant in the village (2km) and several more in the surrounding area. Futuroscope and Puy du Fou are each just over an hour away. Varied beaches (from very quiet to frenetic are within an hour-and-a-quarter, although all can be busy in July and August. There are several inland lakeside "beaches" and watersport facilities within half an hour. There is an extensive network of cycle/walking tracks, and several riding stables locally.

“Wonderful gite, fabulous hosts”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2013

We spent a month with Ian and Jane in their delightful gite - LE jardin. Ian and Jane were extremely helpful and attentive and all our needs were met! Beautiful garden and many villages and places of interest around especially enjoyed vovuant.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for taking the time and effort to write a review.... we really appreciate it....and it helps others to make a decision to come and stay.. We are really pleased we were able to help you to have a great time here in the Vendee...despite the weather!!! Thanks again Jane and Ian

“Little jewel in the heart of La Vendee”

Reviewed 10 May 2013

Here is a very well equipped gite somewhat remote, yet with easy access to moderately large towns such as La Chataignerie and Niort. These themselves are a pleasure to visit, but local to the give are splendid rural walks, full of flora and fauna. The gite itself is charming and looks out on a swimming pool with about an acre of grounds around. The owners are helpful and with their local knowledge, can advise on things to see and do in the vicinity. This gite is highly recommended.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your recommendation ....it really helps potential guests to choose .... such a hard choice .... and reviews do make a difference... Our gites are both rural and rustic ...but only 5 minutes from our village St Hilaire de Voust with a lovely Boulangerie and a very good Restaurant

“A French home from home”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2012

Very French, with lovely surroundings. The accommodation was very well laid out and comfortable. You are welcomed with a meal if you want, and then given the tour. You are given an information pack covering all the things you would need for your stay. There was satellite TV, and loads of DVD's if you wanted, this is a holiday home from home. Highly recommended.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your review .... we really appreciate you taking the time to write one.... it is so helpful for our future guests to get a feel of what we are offering at Le Pinier.... so pleased you liked it!
