The pool was fantastic and used everyday despite the mixed weather; the cover kept the water warm so we could use it first thing when the children woke up! It is fully retractable so when it was sunny we enjoyed the view of the pretty surrounding gardens and woods.There is also a log cabin with changing room, toilet and a solar heated shower on the pool side so everything has been thought of. The gite itself is a refurbished farmhouse so very spacious inside with exposed beams and a grand fireplace with a log burner. The bedrooms and bathrooms were nicely decorated and perfect for us; myself and my husband, our 2 children and their grandparents.The children loved playing at the old school desks. Outside the gardens are well maintained and there are pretty touches that you discover when you walk around. It even has its own woods! The children loved having space to play in; there's a swing set and a boules pitch next to the terrace. There are two patios to sit outside, one under a beautiful wysteria canopy. There's an outhouse with a BBQ and children's toys which were very useful. The owners Jean-Paul and Marie Jose were very friendly and accommodating. They gave us good recommendations and helped us with anything we needed. They invited us round for an aperitif which really added to the French experience of our holiday! The location is very rural but it is well connected and about 25 minutes from the coast. We enjoyed a visit to Les sables d'olonne with a stroll through Quartier de L'ile Penotte and a lunch out in ST Gilles Croix de Vie which is a lovely bustling seaside town. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would thoroughly recommend Gite La Pommeraie.

It is in a very quiet hamlet, within easy reach of lots of scenic cycle rides. The owners had left lots of tourist leaflets which helped us decide where to go and they also had their own personal recommendations of restaurants and villages to visit which we found to be just what we wanted. The Lake nearby is lovely for a picnic lunch or a walk around.At the end of a days cycling we relaxed in the courtyard and enjoyed a glass of French wine...Bliss!!

Our 3 children loved it. The bikes were great we cycled around the country roads. Lindsay was so friendly and welcoming and was a huge help providing information about the best places to visit so we could plan our trips. The house had absolutely everything you could want. Thank you Lindsay for all your help. Paula and Brendan.
