Lovely quiet rural retreat
Roland and Tracey were as friendly and as welcoming as always. We haven't been to the gite for 7 years and everything was as good as we remembered. The whole family had a fantastic time karting, horse riding , relaxing by the pool, and to top it off The Tour de France started from the nearby village which was a spectacle to see. The gite is clean and spacious with everything you could need. Highly recommended.
Lovely homely gite
Lovely gite in a very nice quiet countryside area. Facilities were superb even though it was March and obviously we didn’t use the swimming pool. All the garden chairs tables loungers were in the games room ready for use
Roland and Tracey were super hosts. They left us a welcome pack of milk eggs and wine and during our stay brought us a jar of local honey
Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a stay here to anyone.
Relaxing countryside gite in peaceful setting
We had an excellent two week stay at La Bernerie. The pool was fantastic and was used everyday. Roland ensured it was clean and safe each day our stay. The range seating areas outside meant we could sit in the sunshine or the shade. This is a beautiful, clean, well maintained and well equipped gite in a quiet countryside setting. We found plenty of interesting local places to visit during our two week stay. Roland and Tracey were incredibly helpful both during the stay and before our visit - on hand and available if needed but also left us in peace to relax. We would certainly recommend this gite to anyone wanting to explore rural French life.
Fabulous accomodation ideal for families
We had a lovely stay in this very well equipped gite. The pool and garden area were great to enjoy in the sunshine, whilst in the evening the lounge area was comfy, with British TV and added bonus. Great location only 1/ 2 hour from puy du fou which was amazing. The owners are friendly and helpful and great correspondence. Highly recommended to families wanting to visit the area.
A wonderful family holiday here - again!
This was our second two week stay and once again we had a wonderful family holiday in this beautiful gite which feels like home (but much, much better!) Tracey and Roland are perfect hosts - discrete but there if needed and just a lovely couple who lead a fascinating and enviable life in this picturesque spot in the countryside. The gite is very clean and well equipped. Bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs and downstairs are great. We enjoyed many memorable al fresco family meals at the dining table under the large tree in the garden - after hours of fun in the swimming pool and often late into the evening, enjoying the quiet sounds and smells of nature. Many highly competitive table tennis tournaments were had in the games room. The best bread and pastries ever tasted are a short cycle ride away. The beautiful Mervent forest and fabulous children's park are a short drive away. Getting to the beach for the day was no problem if we wanted to venture a bit further. We ate very well in plentiful nearby restaurants. We will return for sure, we just love it!
We vonden het een zeer goed huisje. Ook voor onze kindjes was het ideaal. Alles was er voorzien. Goed uitgeruste keuken, ruime slaapkamers, verwarmd afgesloten privézwembad, proper... De eigenaars wonen vlakbij maar geven je alle privacy, wel praktisch als je hen iets wil vragen. Het huis is rustig gelegen, wie veel wil bezoeken moet wel bereid zijn om even onderweg te zijn. Voor wie de rust opzoekt is het ideaal.

Most have miles of golden sand , surfing and many have lifeguards and blue flag awards.The ancient ports and modern marinas of La Rochelle, Ille de Ré and Sables d'Olonne are just over an hours drive away and are a must for any boating enthusiasts.
