“Excellent relaxing and friendly give in the Vendeé”
Reviewed 23 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.

“Gite Tranquile is exactly what it says”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Very relaxing and peacefull, lovely welcome from the hosts Vicky and Martin, who gave a lot of advise about the region and it's many attractions. Not far from ameneties and facilities, bars, shops, reastaurants. Many tourist attractions easily accessible from here, especially Le Puy du Fou. We arrived as guests, and felt that we left as friends.

“What a welcome!”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A very comfortable and well equipped Gite with the best of hosts. I've been travelling to France for 40 years and my wife and I have used Gites for the past 20. This is the best package we ever came across.
There were nice touches to be found everywhere and it all combined to give us the most relaxing holiday. Thank you Martin & Vicky.

“Fantastic holiday had by all”
Reviewed 21 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Just returned from a very relaxing holiday at Le Gite Tranquille. Martin and Vicky the hosts were brilliant. The gite was lovely and clean, well equipped and the gardens were wonderful. Our teenage boys loved playing with the table-tennis, swings and boules set. We would definitely recommend to our family and friends and hope to return ourselves again some day.
