About Mrs Wendy Fellenor

John and Wendy live on site at La Bouillatrie in our small converted barn. John grew up in Somerset and Wendy on the Isle of Wight. We left Somerset in 2004 to start a new life in France, John worked long hours in the animal feed industry and Wendy was an accountancy assistant for a large company.

Mrs Wendy Fellenor purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Mrs Wendy Fellenor chose Monsireigne

We fell in love with La Bouillatrie before we entered the house, it is in a lovely setting on a quiet country road. We have converted the original farmhouse into 3 gites but retained many of the original features.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house has excellent views, we are surrounded by fields and have no neighbours. The swimming pool, which we installed ourselves, is south facing and very secure, we pride ourselves on being very child friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything we could have needed was here, made complete by such wonderful host, John and Wendy. We have had a lovely week and plan to be back very soon. John and Wendy's patience was wonderful with the boys. Once again many thanks and we look forward to returning next year.

Relaxing, excellent holiday location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 7 nights in the Garden Gite, which was equipped with everything you could require. The Gite was very comfortable, clean and tastefully presented, with a rustic charm inside and out. John and Wendy were friendly, excellent hosts who have developed a wonderful holiday setting giving attention to the smallest detail to make your time there enjoyable, (eg the pool, the barn for bbq's and the outside games which cater for all ages). The perfect location, for a quiet but active family holiday. Many thanks to John and Wendy, we will definitely be back, and would highly recommend La Bouillatrie.

Brilliant family holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place!!

Wendy and John were brilliant hosts. Nothing too much trouble including booking Restaurants and giving good local knowledge.

Gite very comfortable and spacious, with everything that was required. Country location but easy access to local towns and supermarkets.

La Bouillatrie works well from babies to Grandparents. We loved the pool and shaded play area.

We will be recommending this holiday venue to others

A child-friendly place with very hospitable owners

  • 5 of 5

We can recommend this place to everyone with kids in the same age as our daughters (2.5 - 5 years). Very friendly owners with the heart on the right place. They offered us vegetables of their own garden, we could use the lawndry equipment when we wanted, everything was there available for the kids (bed / chairs / security fences). We give them with pleasure a 10 / 10 for hospitality!

The swimming pool, trampoline, sand pit and all the other toys available were more than enough to give our 2 daugthers an unforgettable week. It’s a save place to spend time with kids.

The owners have done enough efforts to make the booking and trip as easy as possible. We received a clear map with the directions to follow. There was a good communication and we didn’t had any ‘surprises’ when we arrived. Their website shows what you get! Good job!

The guesthouse is situated in a not so touristic area of the Vendee but with little kids there was enough to do at the guesthouse!

We stayed in the Courtyard gite at La Bouillatrie, while house hunting in the area.

Wendy & John where wonderful host, very kind and helpful. They couldn’t do enough for us.

John would light our fire if we were still out house hunting, so it was warm when we got back.

We only planned to stay for a week, but stayed for six and enjoyed every minute.

We would highly recommend staying at La Bouillatie.

Thank you!

Friendly, informative and welcoming hosts

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay.

The Courtyard Gite is simple but fully equipped with everything a family could possibly need.

Wendy and John are the perfect hosts. They have mastered the tricky art of being there when you need them for advice and tips while still allowing you to enjoy your privacy.

They have thought of everything. From bikes to internet access to games and books all the ingredients are there for a perfect family holiday. My children loved the fact there was a whole shed of pool toys!

An absolute delight!

Marie and family from Cavan.
