Wonderful, secluded place with lots of character

  • 5 of 5

Having trawled the web for a suitable place to stay for our family, we were lucky enough to chance upon this wonderful little Hire in the middle of rural France. Mike, the owner, we extremely helpful and looked after us, answering any questions and providing lots of local information to make our stay a pleasant one. With great night time skies, lots of wildlife (butterflies, bats, birds and lizards), our 7 year old had a great time. Set in the shade of a 450 year old Chateaux, but with plenty of sun we were able to set up our 4 month old in the shade everyday and just enjoy the good weather. Not too far away are all the amenities you could need, such as bakeries, supermarkets etc. We would thoroughly recommend, and will be going back at some point.

Lovely property. Lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

After a long day travelling we were so pleased to have a bottle of wine waiting for us. The gite was spotless and very cosy. Our dog loved the garden that was spatious and secure. Mike the owner was amazing too. He gave us lots of advice on the best places to visit and was on hand to answer any queries we had. We loved our stay and was very sad to leave. But we will be returning in the very near future.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage and our dog loved the garden. Cottage was very tastefully decorated and the description of the cottage was accurate and very clean. Mike was really helpful and we would recommend this cottage. La Rochelle is beautiful and only half an hour from the cottage. We wished we had gone to see it earlier in the week as too much to see in one day. Vouvent is a beautiful village 20mins from the cottage, where we spent time walking, shopping and eating. It was a lovely week.

Beaches 40 mins approx. La rochelle 30 mins. Fontenay 10 mins. Local restaurant, bar tobac, shop, hairdressers-walking distance. Mevent 20 mins. vouvant 25 mins.


La Rochelle Airport 35 mins. Nantes airport 1 hour. Poitiers airport 1 hour. St Malo 3 hours. Caen 4.5 hours.


Village shop. Supermarkets 10 mins. In the village local activities include a tennis court, horse riding equestrian centre, rowing boats to hire.

Beautiful walks, bike rides and fishing.

Set down a quiet country lane. It is located in a rural village, Le Poire Sur Velluire, with a shop for your fresh baguette, hairdressers and tabac within a short walking distance. For a delicious evening meal, we suggest the local pretty restaurant ‘auberge de la riviere’ just a 10 minute walk.
