About Myriam Hilaire

Happy to make you discover our beautiful region ... La Vendée

Where we can enjoy the micro climate, an environment that brings you the extra space.

We would like to share this place of tranquility, surrounded by this great Nature. Myriam and Bruno

Myriam Hilaire purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Myriam Hilaire chose Vendee

The property is a beautiful place, with its meadows, woods and canals. The local French people are friendly. The area has its own microclimate and the second part is the sunniest of France and although we are a very quiet place, there are a host of places to visit nearby. It is easy to reach from England, with 1 hour 10 minutes from London to La Rochelle (40) minutes drive). Other major airports such as Nantes or Poitiers are within an hour or so away. There is also a good link from the Eurotunnel to La Rochelle train station and there is a selection of different driving distance to ports.

What makes this cottage unique

It is the most tranquil setting in the Vendee with a beautiful 10x5 Roman style swimming pool, surrounded by woods and meadows and criss-crossed by waterways.

There are great places to visit nearby, such as the Atlantic coast, La Rochelle, Ile de Re, the forest of Mervant and the Green Venice area.

We have lots of facilities for guests, such as bikes, table tennis, darts, badminton, boules, fishing, a boat to take on the canal and even a rowing machine for those who don't like the water.

Guestbook comments from the owner

‘What can we say? Words fail us. It's sheer perfection. An idyllic location, with wonderful hosts, who feel more like friends, so helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Having stayed in gites before, from Brittany to Aquitaine, this is by far the best. We are sure we will never find anywhere better. Thank you Paddy and Harry for an unforgettable holiday’ - Dave & Sue, Yorkshire

‘Your publicity understates the case. Our expectations were greatly surpassed. The gite is very attractively furnished, the grounds tranquil and a source of so much pleasure in their abundance of wildlife. Thank you for making our stay so very enjoyable’ - Stewart, Liz, David and Claire, Somerset

‘All our expectations were met and surpassed by this fabulous week. Many thanks, Paddy and Harry, for being the perfect hosts. This really is the perfect spot in which to unwind with fantastic accommodation, a great location and superb climate’ - Simon & Andrea, Suffolk

Peaceful gite

  • 5 of 5

Had a super week in La Lavande, very peaceful location, very easy & safe for young children to run around good outside space. Gite was very clean, well equipped with thoughtful additions; tea, coffee, sugar, butter, dishwasher tabs, washing up liquid. Also welcoming baguette & bottle of wine! Gite was all on one floor, spacious and airy, well designed for a young family. Our young boy (2 yrs), liked seeing Harry put pool cover on & our girls commented on how clean pool was. We very much appreciated the little touches, thank you very much Paddy & Harry.
