“A Lovely Rural Gite”
Reviewed 16 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We had a lovely couple of weeks at Les Ammonites. The gite was well equipped and spotlessly clean and the owners were friendly and knowledgeable. There were plenty of activities within about an hour's drive including the amazing Puy du Fou, and the West Coast beaches. Slightly further away is the lovely Ile de Noirmoutier which is wonderful for a day's cycling.

“Excellent holiday location”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We really enjoyed our recent holiday in Le Vondee. The accommodation was excellent. Beautiful house, clean and comfortable with plenty of room for six people. Vast outdoor space, with BBQ facilities, a lovely swimming pool (the photos don't do it justice) and plenty of green for children to run around or ride their bikes. The little goal was a favourite of ours!
Peter and Isabelle were very welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them.vand the dog Stanley was very much admired and cuddled by the little ones.
The house is well located to explore the area. Most places are within 40 to 60 minutes drive. There are lakes, vineyards and nice villages within easy reach and there are also two huge supermarkets within 10 minutes. If you are into birds and animals, this is the place for you. There are two little owls living in Peter and Isabelle's barn. Kites, buzzards and white storks amongs others are easily spotted.
What wasn't that good about our holiday was the weather but the rainy days gave us an opportunity to explore the area and to enjoy the house and facilities.
All in all, a great place.

“Great relaxing place”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The gite was very well equipped and spotless and we all enjoyed using the pool.
Stanley, the english TV and wifi ensured that the children were happy.
Paul and Isabelle were fantastic freindly hosts who have a great knowledge of the locality.
The gite is located in a lovely quiet rural setting, yet its only a 10 min drive to the local town and supermarkets..
We visited numerous beaches that were all excellent and around an hours drive away.
We would recommend this gite.

“Comfortable and well equipped barn conversion in a pleasant rural location”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The accommodation is very comfortable and well equipped and large gardens which are excellent for activities such as kite flying and frizbee. The pleasant rural location is very peaceful and offers great views of the surrounding countryside. The brilliant Puy Du Fou and Indian Forest attractions are within 30 minutes drive and, whilst a little further, the drive to the beaches is easy. The owners (Paul and Isabelle) live next door and are excellent hosts, very helpful and friendly with lots of advice on places to see/things to do.

“Very well equipped and comfortable gite - perfect for a family holiday”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a very nicely renovated farm house, very clean and well equipped and set on the edgeof a peaceful little village. The owners live on the site and were most welcoming and friendly and our teenage children loved the pool and large garden. There are some great beaches within about 50 mins and whilst this seems like a long way, knowing that we had such nice accomodation to return to made the trip much more bearable and if you want to vist Puy du Fou of Indian Forest then this is a good location.
Overall this is an excellent base for a holiday in the Vendee and we would definately like to go back!

“Excellent, relaxing holiday [-]home from home[--]”
Reviewed 9 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We had a great time, the cottage was large, well equipped and of a very high standard. Paul and Isabelle were very welcoming and full of useful information and tips. Large garden, swings and swimming pool kept us busy and the BBQ and terrace was lovely for the summer evenings. So many options for trips within an hours drive that this is an area one trip is not enough for. We look forward to visiting again.
