Cosy comfortable little gite in a quiet backwater of the Vendee
Four of us stayed for a week in this comfortable little gite in a very quiet village. We had fab weather so were able to get out and about every day. The property is small but was very adequate for our needs - we were out all day exploring the region by bike (ideal totally flat terrain with farmland, canals and villages to visit) or visiting the coast - so the only time we spent at the gite was mostly sitting out cooking and eating each evening in the secluded garden. The facilities in the property suited our basic needs perfectly; two double bedrooms, bathroom (with very good shower), kitchen (hob only, no oven as is clear from the property details), and a sitting room/lounge which we scarcely used. We used the barbecue every night, and enjoyed some windfall figs from the tree in the front. Mike was friendly and helpful, meeting us on arrival and offering help or advice should we need it. We all had a great week!
many thanks for your five star review . So glad you enjoyed the house and the location .
kind regards Mike and Bev
spot on thanks
Ideal location for sight seeing . Property as described. Very clean.Looked recently re decorated. We would stay again. Very reasonable price for the Vendee.The old antique bed was sooo comfy. La Rochelle is a must .. Mervent lake and wood was great for our dog as the weather was very hot. Many thanks again. Oh .. and the local restaurant by the river is top notch.

Perfect base for walking and sightseeing
Great base for a week's holiday with my two dogs. Enclosed garden, spacious, comfortable accommodation, and a very helpful owner. I couldn't ask for more - 5 Stars!
Many thanks for staying and taking the time to write your 5 star review. So glad you enjoyed your stay so much. Kind regards Mike and Bev
Wonderful, secluded place with lots of character
Having trawled the web for a suitable place to stay for our family, we were lucky enough to chance upon this wonderful little Hire in the middle of rural France. Mike, the owner, we extremely helpful and looked after us, answering any questions and providing lots of local information to make our stay a pleasant one. With great night time skies, lots of wildlife (butterflies, bats, birds and lizards), our 7 year old had a great time. Set in the shade of a 450 year old Chateaux, but with plenty of sun we were able to set up our 4 month old in the shade everyday and just enjoy the good weather. Not too far away are all the amenities you could need, such as bakeries, supermarkets etc. We would thoroughly recommend, and will be going back at some point.
Thank you so much for your lovely 5 star review.We are so pleased you had a great time .We hope return soon.

Lovely property. Lovely location.
After a long day travelling we were so pleased to have a bottle of wine waiting for us. The gite was spotless and very cosy. Our dog loved the garden that was spatious and secure. Mike the owner was amazing too. He gave us lots of advice on the best places to visit and was on hand to answer any queries we had. We loved our stay and was very sad to leave. But we will be returning in the very near future.
We loved the cottage and our dog loved the garden. Cottage was very tastefully decorated and the description of the cottage was accurate and very clean. Mike was really helpful and we would recommend this cottage. La Rochelle is beautiful and only half an hour from the cottage. We wished we had gone to see it earlier in the week as too much to see in one day. Vouvent is a beautiful village 20mins from the cottage, where we spent time walking, shopping and eating. It was a lovely week.
Many thanks for your lovely 5 star review.We are so happy the four of you ( and your dog!) enjoyed your stay so much. Its always so nice to hear that our guests have had such good holidays and have enjoyed the area. Regards Mike and Bev
