“Super relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a lovely holiday at Dolphin Gites. The owners make you feel more than welcome and are very helpful. Ideal location for exploring the area, popping to the nearest beach which is only 5 - 10 mins away or just chilling by the pool. So good we have re-booked for next year.

“Peaceful and relaxing: ideally located”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our third visit to Dolphin Gites and as always we had a wonderful holiday; this year staying in Gite 2. We can't help noticing that year on year Cathy and Howard continue to make improvements to the properties. Gite 2 was spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable. I'm so glad they retained the shutters; that little reminder that you are back in France. The site is very family friendly and safe with its walled garden and corners for kids to explore. The pool is a delight on hot days and again well maintained. There is so much to do in the area besides the endless beaches. Les Flâneries in La Roche sur Yon for rainy days, Lac du Jaunay for outdoor types, Noirmoutier with its view of the white cliffs of St-Jean-de-Monts on one side, and the Pointe de la Loire on the other, Les Sables d'Olonne for a bit of retail therapy and a meal by the quay. All of this in easy reach of Dolphin Gites.

“excellent holiday”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our family had a wonderful time at dolphin gites this summer. The gite itself was perfect, spotless and well equipped; location excellent, minutes from both the beaches and the lakes. The pool was lovely, water warm and clean. It was sociable too, with the children making friends, and the daily bread van added to the relaxation of our time there. So much so that we rebooked for 2014 and are counting down the weeks! All in all, perfect for our needs and wouldn't hesitate in highly recommending this little corner of heaven in the vendee!

“Pretty and well-equipped”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Very nice gite with a high standard of furnishing and well appointed. Beautiful grounds and a lovely pool. Plenty to do locally but roads tended to be very busy at peak times. Wouldn't want to be there in August necccessarily.... only criticism is heat - we only had one heater and it was an unseasonably cold May, but in a normal year one would hope this wasn't an issue, the temperature should have been in the high teens/low twenties rather than the very low teens! All in all a good experience.
