Have really enjoyed our stay here and would love to come again. The garden is so lovely to sit in and watch the bees whilst enjoying a peaceful glass of wine! Picked some figs (hope you don't mind) & intend to make some wine when we get home. The gite was beautifully tidy when we arrived; it's nice to stay somewhere so well looked after. Had some pleasant walks by the river & enjoyed the DVD collection when we'd tired ourselves out!

Thanks, see you next time.

Dear Rob + Debbie

Thank you for a great stay. The gite was pretty much perfect – really well equipped, clean and very comfortable. The village is so peaceful, but with just enough people passing by so as not to feel too isolated. Haven't slept so well and for so long in years!

Good beaches at La Tranche-sur-Mer and 'Le Bleu Mob' restaurant there was great – 3 fantastic lunches. All only 30 minutes drive away.

Also visited Puy du Fou theme park and Indian Forest Park (only 15 minutes away and although a bit pricy the kids were occupied for a whole day).

Fully recommend this great value holiday home. Best wishes,

Simon, Rachel, Isabelle + Kitty

We have had a lovely time despite the hit and miss weather. The cottage is lovely with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The beaches are great, especially Les Conches. Lots of Towns to see, we loved La Rochelle and Les Sables d'Olonne.

We visited Haras de la Vendee (Stud Farm) at Roche S Yon which is an amazing place, fabulous horses. The show was excellent. We also found in the centre of Roche S Yon mechanical animals operated by buttons + stick gears. Great fun and very clever.

We stumbled across a Marche de Puce at Moutiers Les Mauxfaits all the streets were filled with bric and brac for sale. We had the most delicious mussels & frites in the market place.

All in all we have had a great time out and about and loved coming back to play your great selection of games. Thank you.

To Debbie + Rob

Thank you so much for a lovely stay.

Everything I needed and more. The house is fantastic and such a lovely setting. All mod cons whilst keeping the simple French rustic charm. I slept so well. The weather was also fantastic, hot + sunny, so this meant plenty of time outdoors. The garden is idyllic with all the wildlife and passing neighbours to say hello. The surrounding area is beautiful and so near the coast. Fabulous food. I will be recommending it to others and would love to come again. Thank you so much.

We have enjoyed our stay in this lovely, tranquil place + our introduction to the Vendée.

The gite is very well-equipped and we like its simple but tasteful interior and its quiet garden.

Our only problem… we didn't find out what were 'les mauxfaits' of Moutiers!

Thank you for being our refuge at such short notice. We have had a lovely stay, really enjoyed the peace & quiet but also made the most of the proximity of the beach. We would love to see you again, but perhaps with a little more notice!

Hope you enjoy the rest of the beautiful French summer

A very well equipped and comfortable holiday cottage – we have enjoyed our family evenings outside.

Our favourite beach – Jard sur Mer, very pretty and peaceful, however kids also loved the bustle and clear water of Sables d' Olonne.

Thanks for a lovely week.

We have been very impressed with your gite, clean, tidy and well organised.

We have enjoyed introducing our children to rural France. Lots of things to see and do and then come back to the peace and quiet.

The guidebook and leaflets were very helpful, thank you.

With best wishes
