Introduction - A Brief Look At Our Gîtes
La Petite Guyonnière dates back to the mid 19th century and was originally a large farm. It has been a holiday destination for 18 years. Each gîte is tastefully decorated, fully equipped and above all, comfortable. When reserved together, the two gîtes can accommodate up to 16 people, a great option for large families or groups. We also offer the ground floor of Le Marronnier during the months of May, Jun and Sep, which can sleep up to 8 people.
La Petite Guyonnière is divided into two gîtes, a traditional Vendéen farmhouse “Le Marronnier” and an attached cottage “La Petite Bouleau”.
Le Marronnier is a lovely example of a traditional Vendée style farmhouse. It sleeps up to 12 people in large tastefully furnished rooms. It is equipped to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible. A home away from home.
La Petite Bouleau is a charming cottage that comfortably sleeps up to 4 people. Like the adjoining farmhouse it is spacious and well equipped. It has it’s own designated outside space to the rear, which leads out into the gardens.
To discover more about our gîtes, follow the links. You will find photos of all the rooms with lists of contents.

Our large and attractive swimming pool is heated and is open from May to Oct. In addition to a fence with a padlocked gate, there is also a pool-side alarm. Above all, safety is our main priority.

How to get here, how to make a reservation, in short, information on almost everything.....
The Vendée is of similar size to Devon, at 2,590 sq/miles. However, with less than half the population there is a feeling of space and tranquility. This feeling is magnified by an extensive and well maintained road network, consequently, it’s a pleasure to drive in the Vendée. Whilst coastal towns and villages can be busy during the summer months, most other areas are quiet. The Vendée is packed with tourist attractions, cultural sites and activities to suit all tastes and ages. The people are friendly, the food and wine are excellent – you can feel the pace of life slowing, what a combination!
Your gîte holiday accommodation in the Vendée is just a few hours drive from the main channel ports, therefore, you could be starting your holiday the same day.
We have just left our beautiful holiday destination that is La Petite Guyonniere!! This was our first visit (out of hopefully many more to follow). What do I comment on first? There were so many things that made our stay special. Our hosts Chris and Diane
were so welcoming and helpful and truly added to the enjoyment of our stay.
The gite itself is lovely and although being advertised as not being wheelchair friendly, with a little help from my husband up the steps to the bathroom (admittedly I can de wheel to allow my chair to fit through smaller door widths) we still found the gite suitable. No dewheeling needed for the step into bedroom. Lovely large kitchen with a low surface worktop for me (🙄so i couldn’t get out of the cooking!) Two steps up to the outside eating area. So once my husband got me there it was best I made the most of it and stay till the end of the bottle of rose!😂👍our 14 year old daughter especially loved the inflatable rings at the pool for topping up her tan and our 9 year old son loved the horse (#completely out of apples!) the greenhouse, the medieval outdoor games, the swings, boules and table tennis👍
Chris and Diane gave us lots of info on where to go and what we could do, which really helped as we only had a weeks’ stay and it meant we could fit so much more into our supposed (just relaxing by the pool) holiday!👌👍rather than wasting days (as with previous holidays) trying to familiarise ourselves with the area. Thank you 😘😘
