A lovely setting in rural Vendee, this rustic gite is an ideal place to ‘step off the world’ for a peaceful and calm holiday. Nevertheless there is plenty to do in the area and we enjoyed our visits to Fontenay-le-Comte, (History Walk in the Old Town) La Foret-sur-Sevre, Vouvant and Mervant. For those interested there is golf at Bressuire and Mazieres-en-Gatineau. (The latter is the better of the two)
The owners, Christine and Peter, were very welcoming and helpful throughout our week’s stay and as well as providing a much appreciated welcome pack gave us good advice on local visits and walks.
The local Super-U at La Châtaigneraie (3 miles/5km away) provided for all our needs and there is a local tourist office there also.
Thank you Chris and Pete for such a calm and restful week and for making us so welcome. We will certainly recommend Le Gite de Vio to any friends travelling in your area and would return ourselves if visiting this area again.
a lovely welcome pack was in the kitchen and the house was clean with bed linen and pool towels
outside is an amazing pool and loungers. the BBQ was perfect and plenty of eating areas.
the garden was great for ball games.
