“Perfect holiday”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Le Gite Tranquille certainly lives up to its name, after living in a busy city the peace and quite of this holiday cottage was very welcome, we sat outside on our first evening and the only thing we could hear were birds and the occasional bee. Our hosts Vicky and Martin couldn't have made us feel more welcome, with provisions in the fridge and a homemade loaf waiting for us on our arrival, we had a leisurely evening without having to rush straight out to do some shopping. Vicky and Martin are on hand if needed, but were never intrusive, and have a wealth of local knowledge which was really useful as it enabled us to visit places we may have otherwise overlooked. The cottage itself is a home from home and has everything you need, including comfy beds, and for those that need it Wi-Fi and English TV channels. The area is beautiful with wonderful little villages, lovely restaurants, fields of sunflowers and the Vendee beaches are within easy reach. If you are looking to relax and let your stress disappear this is the place for you, we honestly felt we had been away for more than 2 weeks.

So glad you enjoyed yourselves and were able to relax. Le Gite Tranquille is definitely a good place to relax and unwind after the stresses of work. It is set in a pretty orchard and is surrounded by fields, so no traffic noise!

“A Special Place”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is our second visit to Le Gite Tranquille and hopefully it will not be our last! It was as if we had come home. Martin and Vicky were, as usual, the perfect hosts who made our holiday very enjoyable with their warmth and hospitality. Le Gite Tranquille is a very special place for that relaxing break that you need.

“Wonderful holiday”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We chose this holiday after reading the reviews and it surpassed our expectations. What lovely hosts Martin and Vicky were, from sharing their converted home made wines to advising us on the abundance of places to see. Such a beautiful part of France and with Martin on hand as the weather man ( not that it was needed, sunshine every day) we had a wonderful holiday.

Thank you for the walnuts picked from your trees and making us so welcome. Next time we visit we plan on June, cherry picking time..

“Couldn't be better!”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

La Gite Tranquille is in a lovely quiet spot - it lives up to its name - but is in easy reach of lots to do. It is very comfortable, with lots of space and very well equipped - english tv, wifi etc. The owners, Martin and Vicky, are very hospitable and friendly. We will certainly be back!

“Excellent relaxing and friendly give in the Vendeé”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had been camping for about 3 weeks across France before arriving at la Gite Tranquille. It was a little difficult to find - though that might have been more my navigation - once we arrived we were delighted at the warm and friendly welcome which included a freshly baked loaf and enough provisions in the fridge to see us through the Sunday evening.

The give was very well appointed and comfortable - the two bedrooms were fine for the 4 of us and the garden was excellent with a great range of facilities. The give is a little off the beaten track but close enough to a reasonably sized town for shopping and about 40-50 minutes from la Rochelle and other beaches. There were some excellent more local nature reserves to see.

Martin and Vicky were superb hosts and were very attentive - without being "in your face". We would heartily recommend some time here if you want some quiet, relaxing time.
