About the Owner

Nicole and Peter both left the corporate world several years ago for a higher quality and more relaxed lifestyle in the Vendee. Nicole is French but having lived extensively in England and Germany is fluent in all three languages. Peter is English by birth but having lived in the US for most of his life is also an American citizen. Unfortunately this means that he is only fluent in English and the American variation. We would like to welcome you to our life in the Vendee and can provide you with as much or as little information you need to make your stay happy and memorable.

Wonderfully relaxing

  • 4 of 5

I have just returned from a 10 night stay in this charming gite just outside Vouvant.

The accommodation was clean, well equipt and very comfortable for our party of 3 adults and 2 children.

The owners Peter and Nicole were friendly and welcoming, they have just the right mix of being avaliable to help and leaving you to relax.

The dog was a big hit for us, and always had a welcoming smile when we came back from a day trip, and never a nuisance.

The pool was a wonderful way to cool down on hot days. The children enjoyed it very much, along with the large garden area which was well kept.

The village of Vouvant is well worth a visit (we did on several occasions) the tourist information folder put together by the owners was very useful and full of ideas to keep you busy.

If you are looking for a great base for exploring the beautiful area, and for days relaxing in the countryside I can not recomend this accommodation highly enough.

My only suggestion for an improved stay would be a new mattress in the main bedroom. Whilst I enjoyed a firmer sleep my husband did struggle somewhat. But this wasn't significant enough to have any detrimental effect to our stay. Simply a suggestion.

What a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here recently and we were very well looked after by Nicole, who speaks excellent English. The gite is well looked after, clean and has all the bases covered for a comfortable stay. The pool is great, although not heated so as the weather had been poor before our stay it was a little on the cold side, not that that stopped the kids! The garden is large so plenty of space for the kids to run around in and play on the swings and with the volleyball net.

Vouvant is a short drive away and is a lovely village, a Petit Cite de Character. It has a baker, a pharmacy, small supermarket and several places to eat as well as being an artists commune. The area would be great for biking around, but you could do with a car to get around. Puy du Fou is a must, Ile de Re is lovely but very busy in August. Great place for salt and oysters though. It's more melon growing country around Vouvant.

A couple of things to note, which are not given in the details of the property:

There is wifi (unfortunately this broke half way through our stay and due to being in a rural location seemed not to be a priority for the network provider to fix. I'm sure it will be by now)

Nicole has a dog, a large well behaved Dalmatian who was very excitable on our arrival but very soon calmed down and hardly bothered us afterwards. If the kids had wanted to play with him more, I'm sure we would have seen more of him.

There is a BBQ, but no dishwasher or washing machine (some people may think these items are important).
