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.

Lovely, peaceful farmhouse with great hosts
We had a lovely week staying at Nigel and Suzanne’s farmhouse. The house is a really nice place to relax, and tastefully decorated and with plenty of space. The pool is great, especially on the really hot days, and the loan of the bikes was much appreciated for a quick ride to the local shops and further afield. There’s lots to see locally, especially Ile de Re, and La Rochelle. Nigel and Suzanne were really helpful and welcoming, and gave us some really helpful local info. We really enjoyed our time there.
Thank you Graham for taking the time to review the Farmhouse, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you all again in the future.
Lovely rustic farmhouse.
We stayed here with two friends for four nights in June. The property is very pretty, surrounded by open countryside and fields, just on the edge of the village and about thirty minutes from La Rochelle. Suzanne and Nigel, the owners live in the other half of the farmhouse and made us feel very welcome and provide local knowledge if required.
The farmhouse has sleeping for six people but as there are only two bedrooms, the upstairs landing is used as the third bedroom, probably suitable for kids but not too sure about two adults.
Although we enjoyed our stay here, there were some issues that we feel need addressing. The second bedroom was lacking for storage and only had one power socket which was needed for a light as it was dark, also the kitchen and bathroom could be given a makeover to improve the comfort and amenities.
These are just our opinion of our overall experience of our stay, and we would still recommend this farmhouse.
idyllic retreat in lovely setting
having recently returned from a lovely rejuvenating weeks stay in the beautiful farmhouse gite with our family,we can highly recommend it , it was very spacious and comfortable with simple French décor and a lovely ambience to the whole house and pretty courtyard its all set in, It was so good to revisit this lovely area again as we hadn't been here for many years , it was very nostalgic and brought many happy memories back, so lucky to find such a lovely little complex to stay in while doing so. We just want to say a huge thankyou from us all to Nigel and Suzzane for their wonderful hospitality a lovely friendly couple and perfect hosts where nothing was too much trouble,we wish them all the best for the future and hope to meet again. best wishes the church family
Thank you for your comments, we are really pleased you all enjoyed your stay here. We really look forward to seeing you all again in the future.
Lovely relaxing escape to the French countryside
The Farmhouse was beautifully decorated and very spacious. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. The sitting room has British TV which helped us with 3 young children. The garden is communal which suited us very well because it was a place for the children in the other gites to join ours for a game of football or a play in the lovely little playhouse. The garden looks out over fields so you really feel you have escaped to a rural idyll. The children really enjoyed this sociable aspect of the holiday. The swimming pool is beautiful and safely locked away so there was no danger to our young children. There is so much to do within a short drive and we enjoyed day trips to La Rochelle, Il de Re, the seaside towns nearby and also an amazing day a bit further afield at Puy du Fou. Our son sobbed the whole way home he was so sad to have left such a brilliant holiday. Nigel and Suzanne were the perfect mix of friendly and helpful whilst still allowing us privacy to enjoy our family time. We could not fault this Farmhouse and have already booked for next year - for a longer stay and with my parents. Thank you Nigel and Suzanne
Thank you Katie for taking time to write a review for us for the Farmhouse, we are really pleased you all enjoyed your holiday. We really look forward to see you and your lovely family again in the summer.
Great place to stay with family and friends, heartily recommend.
Loved our week at The Farmhouse. The house is beautifully renovated and has a relaxed feel to it. Bedrooms are a good size and a big bathroom with wonderful roll top bath. Fantastic sized sitting room with comfy sofa and TV, plus log burner for chilly days! Kitchen very well equipped with an excellent standard dishwasher, fridge and washing machine plus well functioning cooker. We stayed with our two year toddler and it was perfect. Lots of space for him to mooch about, both inside and outside. Toys and books are provided plus a big selection of DVDs.
Listing is very accurate and all clean and maintained well. Nigel and Suzanne a friendly British couple and on hand to answer any questions and provide recommendations. They strike the balance perfectly between being in close proximity (they live in the other half of the Farmhouse) but not intruding in any way on the holiday.
The garden is amazing: massive lawn with children's swings and a trampoline, plus my son's highlight - a lovely Wendy House. The pool is a good size, temperature wise was fine, was a restorative 25 degrees, welcome relief from the nearly 30 degrees sunshine! Usefully a good washing line and also good table and chairs in the shade for meal times. Great standard BBQ available to use.
The area is stunning. Starting with amazing views from the house and driving out to places such as La Rochelle, Chatelaine sur Plage, Ile de Re etc., it's a perfect base for exploring the region. Supermarkets are very accessible, from the massive Carrefour near La Rochelle to the mid sized, well stocked Intermarche which are within easy, short drive reach. bicycles are available to use and my husband cycled each morning to a fantastic bakery in a nearby village. Might be worth taking a child seat if you want to take small children out for cycles as well.
We were lucky enough to have friends join us, also with small children, so was a great time had by all! They stayed in Le Pressoir, which is smaller than the Farmhouse but just as well equipped and just across the driveway to the Farmhouse.
Loved the week and will definitely return. Beautiful house, great location; all in all an easy and relaxed holiday was had by all!
