“A truly relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting with fantastic hosts.”
Reviewed 3 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We have just spent 2 weeks in the beautiful Gite Tranquil with our two boys. The gite is very well equipped and we have enjoyed the lovely gardens including sampling delicious home grown fruit, vegetables, and wine! It lives up to its name as tranquil and we saw a range of interesting wildlife in the gardens.Martin and Vicky are wonderful hosts and we really enjoyed their hospitality. They were also very helpful in advising us about local attractions including the fabulous Puy du Fou which is less than an hour's drive away and can not be recommended highly enough. We had access to boules and table tennis and the boys were able to run around and play on the swings. We also visited local beaches where we could surf and bodyboard as well as having trips to see the stunning towns and villages in the Ile de Re, Niort and La Rochelle (where there is an impressive aquarium). We thoroughly recommend Le Gite Tranquil as a place to stay, unwind and relax.

“Another wonderful week in La Gite Tranquille”
Reviewed 6 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Yet again we had a wonderful holiday in La Gite Tranquille. We've been 3 times now and it just gets better with each visit. Martin and Vicky, the owners and our dear friends make each visit a memorable one! We just love the location, easy to get to anywhere - beaches, lakes, countryside, shopping etc. Their vast garden is just paradise to be able to sit under the trees in the orchard or to play boules in their own boules court. We're sure we will be back and very soon we hope.

“So tranquil”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Le Gite Tranquille is exactly that, just as described, set in the countryside, quiet and relaxing. We could sit in the garden in the evening and hear absolutely nothing but a few birds. It is ideally situated to explore the Vendee.
The directions to the Gite were very easy to follow and we had no trouble finding it.
Martin and Vicky are lovely, they made us feel at home as soon as we arrived, the Gite is very well equipped with everything we needed, we were invited to make use of the large garden, orchard and boule court and it was very clear that nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. Martin even made us a loaf of homemade bread to welcome us, it smelt and tasted delicious!!
Vicky made our restaurant bookings for us, they were both very helpful in giving directions and recommending places to go and answering our many questions.
We were invited into the Cave one evening and had a lovely time with Martin and Vicky.
Thank you both so much for making our holiday a memorable one.

“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.

“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.
