“Beautiful place with great amenities”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We spent a wonderful relaxing week here with two teenagers and there was more than enough to keep us all occupied and happy! The provision of a laptop with WiFi was an unexpected bonus which added to our holiday. The pool is a good size and the games room was very good. We didn't use the gym but it was nice to have the option. The garden is lovely, with both sunny and shady spots to enjoy.

On entering the property initially it smelt slightly musty and was a bit dark but it definitely wasn't damp and the fact that it didn't get direct sunlight left it cool and very pleasant as the temp rose up to the late 20s.

The owners, Annette and Jason, were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful.

We would love to stay there again.

“A comfortable, well equipped gite in a beautiful and peaceful setting.”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is a fantastic gite - very well equipped, spacious and comfortable, with newly renovated facilities. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and can be appreciated both from the dining terrace and from the large swimming pool. We had a wonderful relaxing holiday here, with two children under four - quite an achievement, and a reflection on the quality if this accommodation.

“A spacious & comfortable well eqiupped gite in a quiet area of natural beauty.”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The accommodation is set in a delightful position with views from the private terrace to the far reaching 'marais'. The gite is well equipped, spacious, comfortable & in a quiet location. Jason & Annette have thought of every detail to make the holiday more enjoyable. We particularly enjoyed the English books & DVD's. The large heated pool is wonderful & the surrounding gardens are enchanting. This property is perfect for families with children & is suitable for a dog, & the handicapped.

“Perfect home from home but with pool and super views!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed for a week at L'Ecurie gite in May and had a wonderful time with our 5,3 and 1 yr old. The master bedroom is very large and has superb views over the Marshes. Our room had a telescope zoomed in on a nesting Stork with four chicks...everyone rushed to see each morning! The gites are extremely well equipped with absolutely everything you could want or need. The children's bedroom was the other side of the gite ( separated by the lounge and kitchen ) and they loved it. There is a lovely outdoor pool and copiously kitted out games room which we used on one not so nice day. We spent most of our time exploring the Vendee with day trips to La Rochelle ( stunning and great Aquarium ), Vouvant, La Faute sur Mer and a pirate themed Chateaux des Aventuriers all within an hours drive from the accommodation.
Annette and Jason are genuinely lovely people and extremely helpful. Try their homemade Mirabelle jam and licquer .... Heaven! I'd definitely stay here again as a week was too short.

Had a truly enjoyable stay here with everything carefully thought out by owners for comfort and enjoyment. Location great for beaches, country walks, chiildrens' leisure activities and proximity to places of interest. Had a large hairy dog with us and despite wet weather at times it was no problem as floors at property tiled throughout and therefore easy to clean! Would definitely return and recommend to any type of traveller.

“Excellent - Definitely well worth a visit”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Having visited L'Ecurie in August with my husband and 2 children aged 12 and 9 I would highly recommend anyone to make a visit here. The accommodation is of a very high standard with excellent attention to detail. The pool and facilities on site were again excellent and showed very thorough and thoughtful attention to detail. The surrounding area and abundance of beautiful beaches made for plenty to do for both adults and kids. Our stay at L'Ecurie was made perfect by the wonderful hosts Annette and Jason who were extremely friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be planning a return visit.

“The perfect place for parents to unwind”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We have been away to several places like this in France and this was by far the best place we have ever stayed in. Annette and Jason are so kind and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The gite and gardens/pool were all beautifully maintained and safe for children of all ages. The facilities in the games barn kept our 7 year old daughter entertained for hours as well as endless hours splashing in the pool. There was everything you could possibly need and the cot and baby equipment was brilliant. The gite is in easy driving distance of lots of lovely beaches and towns worth exploring, but to be honest you don't need to go anywhere when the place you are staying is so relaxing and welcoming!
