“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If you are looking for a fantastic gite, in a peaceful countryside location then you will not find much better than this. Lovely house which was nice and cool on hot summer days. It has everything you could want and Sky TV in English which was great during the Olympics. The pool is glorious, just the right temperature. The welcome pack was a very nice touch and the Gite is inviting and tastefully decorated. There are lots of things to see and do in the area. St Jean d'Angely is very nice. La Rochelle is 50 mins away. Loulay is ten minutes away with boulangeries and a great takeaway pizza place, also a very pretty church. Supermarkets are also nearby. The Owners are very friendly and on hand for help and advice without being intrusive and were kind enough to lend us some bikes so we could explore the area.
We have stayed in lots of different cottages/gites over the years and this one is top of the list.
We are looking forward to returning soon. If you are looking to book, do it, you won't regret it.

Warmest welcome followed by a wonderful holiday. Our family had such a lovely break. Beautiful views and fantastic accommodation. The children spent hours in the pool. Everything you could possibly need has been thought of, even a baby gate at the top of the stairs. Good location for exploring the region & large supermarkets close by. We will absolutely be returning. Thank you for a perfect holiday.

“The perfect find”
Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We wanted to visit friends on our way back up to Caen & we have 2 small dogs.
This gite was perfect, had every thing we needed bearing in mind that we didn't want to do a big shop for just 3 days, knowing that we would be out & about with our pals...tea, coffee, sugar, bread, butter, jam & milk, even a bottle of wine. Brilliant.

The gite was very clean,cozy & very well appointed. The garden & pool we're lovely and we were able to entertain our friends in rural peace & quiet...

I would certainly recommend this gite as a stop over, base to explore the area or for a total
crash out! A big thank you to Stewart & Alison.

“Well equipped gite in tranquil but accessible location”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed for 8 days over the Christmas period with our two daughters. The gite was warm and comfortable and very well equipped. We were delighted with the many thoughtful finishing touches such as milk in the fridge, nice toiletries and we enjoyed the mulled wine on the first evening in front of a roaring wood burner!
The opportunity to look after the hens for a few days made it home from home for our younger daughter!
We appreciated the comprehensive file of local information and enjoyed lunch at the recommended local restaurant on two occasions during our stay.
We were lucky to have beautiful bright weather for the majority of our stay and enjoyed a walk in the sunshine on Christmas Day. I'm sure this is an idyllic spot for a summer holiday.

“Relaxing in a tranquil and secluded setting was ideal for our family getaway.”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

From the minute we found La Miellerie online we knew it was what we wanted, and the reality when we arrived surpassed our expectations. The gite is absolutely everything a family needs; with two teenagers constantly hooked onto the wifi whilst relaxing by the pool or enjoying the freedom of splashing about in a lilo fight in the pool, we were able to lie back and sunbathe in the glorious heat with just the occassional chicken passing by the waterside. Long days and evenings outside the gite drinking and dining on the terrace are calm with only the church bells as a reminder of passing time.
Shops within easy driving distance for daily provisions and empty lanes for early morning jogging before the heat takes a grip. Easy reach of beaches for day trips.
Beautiful place and fantastic people, we couldnt have asked for anything more. Hugely recommend it to those wanting a peaceful escape.

“Beautiful, quiet well equipped gite with superb owners!”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed in July with 2 young children. The pool was fantastic. Warm enough for the kids. The expansive garden were great to run around and the chickens were a high point of four kids. They loved letting them out in the morning. Allison and Stewart were so very helpful and supportive. The Gite is beautiful in a very quiet village. It certainly feels like rural france. My youngest hasn't stopped talking about tractors and chickens since returning.
