Gite in St Gervais, Nr. Beauvoir-sur-Mer, Vendee, France - Peaceful Countryside Location On The Edge Of The Marais. 13 Km From The Nearest Beach
Our gite is located 2 km from the small village of St Gervais. This converted old farm building features a high ceiling and exposed wooden beams giving a very light and spacious feel. Accessed by a side door the gite has an open plan living room, dining area with table and 4 chairs and well equipped modern kitchen. French doors open out from the living room onto a patio area furnished with garden furniture, parasol and barbecue where you can enjoy meals alfresco and watch some fantastic sunsets across the fields. This is an excellent base in which to explore this beautiful region with its many coastal resorts or the charming market town of Challans just a short drive away.

Perfect, peaceful week
About the Owner
My husband and I bought a small rural campsite after spotting an advert claiming to 'change your life' Well it has certainly done that! We also ran a B&B for five years alongside the campsite which has been very popular with French holiday makers. It hasn't been easy but we've managed to build up the business entirely on our own and are looking forward to our ninth season this year. We finished converting the gite at the beginning of June 2013 when we welcomed our first customers. The gite has been renovated from an out-building which once served as the bull house when the grounds were originally used as a working cattle farm.

Perfect, peaceful week
We stayed for one week in this lovely gite at Camping le Fief Angibaud. There was nothing we were short of, every little detail has been considered, even down to a welcome basket of wine, biscuits and cheese. The owners, Janette and Andrew gave us a warm welcome and helpful advice. The cottage is well situated for a great holiday even in January. It is close to beaches, markets, main towns and country lanes. The gite has all the modern amenities you need and we will certainly make a return visit.
Description was as we found the property. beautifully decorated (only one year old) with everything we could need. Hosts were very friendle and helpful when required. We the know this area but have previously visited with a camper so this was very luxurious! Would recomnend this gite to anybody

We holidayed in France for the first time, travelled alone but met up with friends who had brought their caravan to this site. We had booked the gite for 2 weeks, and although is advertised as sleeps 2, the owner was happy for us to bring along our 2 children, and the gite happily accomodated the whole family. The gite itself has been renovated to a very high standard, french in style with all the mod cons. The owners live on site and are very approachable & couldn't do enough for you, all making for a very pleasant holiday. I would definitely recommend the gite, and the area, which although situated in land, was very easy to travel to the numerous beautiful beaches that are dotted around. The site itself is very quiet and peaceful. All in all a wonderful first time holiday in France was had and I would definitely return.
We recently spent a week at the gite on this campsite which is surrounded by peaceful countryside yet is within easy reach of beautiful beaches as well as the lovely island of Noirmoutier. The gite is immaculate, beautifully presented and very well equipped with everything you need. The owners are very friendly, and kindly leave a welcome pack upon arrival which was very much appreciated. We were delighted we had chosen this gite for our holiday and enjoyed our stay. A perfect choice for couples wanting a quiet and peaceful break!
From the Owner
“As soon as we viewed the campsite and surrounding area we knew it was the perfect location for us to live and start a business. The location is in such a beautiful, natural area on the edge of the marais, so peaceful and quiet, with an abundance of wildlife. Yet there are so many places to see and much to do here. We are in easy reach of miles of sandy beaches lined with pine forests, ideal for cyclists, lovely sea side resorts and also the very smart city of Nantes. We hope you will want to come and enjoy the charm of this delightful region and love it in the same way that we do.”
