Why Nigel or Suzanne chose Landrais
We chose this property ,because of its location to La Rochelle and the Atlantic coast. It was in need of renovation and we could see what a fabulous holiday complex it would make once it had been renovated.

Great family stay
We have just spent a great week in the Pressoir. The gites are in a beautiful and peaceful location, whilst still being close to lots of attractions (within 30 mins). Nigel and Suzanne were really helpful in recommending places to visit as we have not been to this region before. Il de Re, La Rochelle and the beaches were all highlights. The gite itself is well equipped and was good for our family of four. There is a lovely seating area and BBQ's which we enjoyed using. There are also bikes to use. The pool was very popular with our boys and has comfy seating and sun loungers for enjoying the great weather. Thanks for a great stay.
Lovely spot for a family holiday
Lovely property set in fantastic open rolling French countryside. Property was immaculate, basic but adequate furnishings and a well equipped kitchen. Two outside seating areas which is nice. Pool is well kept and was a huge hit with our two young children. There’s also a huge grass area with some (very old) swings, a trampoline (though no safety net) and a childrens’ playhouse which was great for us and allowed our children to make friends with some children staying in one of the other properties.
5 minutes drive to a fabulous bakery/patisserie, 20 mins to some beautiful beaches, and less than an hour to ile de re.
All in all a very enjoyable week.
A beautiful property in gorgeous French countryside
We had a wonderful 2 weeks staying in Le Pressoir. The property was really lovely, the swimming pool was great to come back to after exploring and the owners Nigel and Suzanne made our stay just perfect. The property was well equipped, even beach gear and bikes were provided.
The property is about 25 minutes from La Rochelle and ideally situated for exploring the area where there's lots of gorgeous towns, markets and beaches. Which all made for the prefect family holiday.
Comfortable, relaxing, and attentive hosts!
A great base to explore the area, whether that be cycling locally on the quiet county lanes, day tripping to Ile De Re & Ile D'Oleron, visiting the local beaches, exploring the waterways of 'green venice', or just enjoying the regional wines and fantastic seafood (Oysters and Prawns like you've never tasted). Also fantastic emergency services, local hospital and great hosts in Sue and Nigel as I discovered following an exceptionally extreme reaction I had to a bee sting on our first evening! A holiday we won't forget.
Le Pressoir is wonderfully presented and full of character standing in its own grounds in an idyllic rural location. Clean and well equipped with everything you may need, it provides an ideal base to explore the local area. We didn't take advantage of the swimming pool but it looked very inviting. The gite is very dog friendly and there are many fabulous walks literally on the doorstep.
Nigel & Suzanne were great hosts, extremely friendly and accommodating. They gave some great tips on where to visit locally and were helpful in finding a local vet.
We would highly recommend Le Pressoir and will hopefully return in the near future.
Lovely property, very clean & beautiful surroundings. Really enjoyed our holiday & we would definitely like to return. Added bonus was a great night out to the local restaurant thanks to Suzanne & Nigel & the babysitting service...and the bikes for getting us home! Thanks again... Louise, Lee & Darcy x
