We have had enquiries to bring " Granny" and we are happy to offer accommodation in the main house ... so that they can have " privacy" .. but join the family during the day !

Very Good

“Peaceful Vandee”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2017

we had a lovely week staying with Jane and Ian in Le Jardin. The gardens and pool area are well kept and very pretty. The bedrooms are a good size with double doors out onto the garden, making them nice and bright. The kitchen is well stocked with all you need. Jane and Ian were great at helping us when our daughter fell ill, making an appointment for us with their own English speaking doctor. Our only downside was the weather, not something anyone can control!

Response from the owner Thanks for a great review ... so pleased we could help with Hannah ..and that she is now much better ..thanks too for taking the time to do a review ..very much appreciated sorry about the weather ! ..but as you say one can control that !... Glad we could help you have a good holiday despite the weather!!

“Wonderful gite, fabulous hosts”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2013

We spent a month with Ian and Jane in their delightful gite - LE jardin. Ian and Jane were extremely helpful and attentive and all our needs were met! Beautiful garden and many villages and places of interest around especially enjoyed vovuant.

Response from the owner Thanks so much for taking the time and effort to write a review.... we really appreciate it....and it helps others to make a decision to come and stay.. We are really pleased we were able to help you to have a great time here in the Vendee...despite the weather!!! Thanks again Jane and Ian

“Little jewel in the heart of La Vendee”

Reviewed 10 May 2013

Here is a very well equipped gite somewhat remote, yet with easy access to moderately large towns such as La Chataignerie and Niort. These themselves are a pleasure to visit, but local to the give are splendid rural walks, full of flora and fauna. The gite itself is charming and looks out on a swimming pool with about an acre of grounds around. The owners are helpful and with their local knowledge, can advise on things to see and do in the vicinity. This gite is highly recommended.

Response from the owner Thanks so much for your recommendation really helps potential guests to choose .... such a hard choice .... and reviews do make a difference... Our gites are both rural and rustic ...but only 5 minutes from our village St Hilaire de Voust with a lovely Boulangerie and a very good Restaurant

“A French home from home”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2012

Very French, with lovely surroundings. The accommodation was very well laid out and comfortable. You are welcomed with a meal if you want, and then given the tour. You are given an information pack covering all the things you would need for your stay. There was satellite TV, and loads of DVD's if you wanted, this is a holiday home from home. Highly recommended.

Response from the owner Thanks so much for your review .... we really appreciate you taking the time to write one.... it is so helpful for our future guests to get a feel of what we are offering at Le Pinier.... so pleased you liked it!
