About the Owner

I was born in the Vendee and grew up in the village of Le Langon.

Although I have lived for many years in different countries, I have always felt deeply attached to my roots. As such, I am always delighted to share the Vendee with people who have an interest in this truly beautiful part of France.

There is so much to discover and do from this Gite which is situated in complete tranquility.

I really enjoy walking on the beaches near La Tranche and my children, just like myself as a child, love to spend time playing by the sea.

I can help with ideas and suggestions to make your holiday unforgettable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"... we love the house. It was great to finally arrive and find we were going to spend our holiday in home rather than a holiday let... it was like our mother's house - similar layout and a house that has an intrinsically welcoming feeling to it."

"We had a lovely week (just wish it could have been longer!)

Your house was very much enjoyed and will be first on the list if we return to the area."

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We were a family party of 8, aged from 6 to 85. The property was outstandingly well-equipped and set in a beautiful area. Everything about our stay was outstanding, and we cannot compliment the house enough. For a family looking for a wonderfully-relaxed holiday, with much to do in the surrounding area, Gite la Touche is the place to stay.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic family holiday for 2 weeks at the Gite. Our children absolutely loved it, and it is a good gite for families with children - with plenty of useful equipment including a cot, travel cot, changing table, pushchair, highchair, lots of children's books, washing machine, tumble dryer, toys and a bath and baby bath. The contained and safe garden (with slide, swings and hammock) and the lovely weather meant that our children were out of bed and straight outside on most days.

We enjoyed many meals on the patio in the sunshine, and there are lots of books (and toys) inside for rainy days too. The owner sent us lots of useful information before our arrival, and the housekeeper lives locally and was friendly and very helpful.

We had not been to the Vendee before but will be back again - the beaches are beautiful (miles and miles of sand) and there is lots to do inland as well - including zoos, castles and a local outdoor swimming pool.
