  About Our Gites 

The site was originally a large farm and dates back to the mid 19th century. It’s been a popular holiday destination since 2001.

La Petite Guyonnière is divided into two gites, a farmhouse “Le Marronnier” and a attached cottage “Le Petit Bouleau”. Each gite is tastefully decorated, fully equipped and above all, comfortable.

When reserved together, the two gites can accommodate up to 16 people, which is a great option for large families or groups.

There is nothing cramped about our gites, everything is spacious. That also applies to our beautiful gardens and the superb, heated swimming pool.

There is plenty of off-road parking, and space within our smaller barn to store bicycles and top-boxes, etc.

Le Marronnier is a lovely example of a traditional Vendée style  farmhouse. It sleeps up to 12 people in 4 large, and tastefully furnished, bedrooms. It is equipped to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible.  A home away from home.

Le Petit Bouleau is a charming cottage that comfortably sleeps up to 4 people, in 2 large bedrooms.  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.

  Facilities and Activities 

Our swimming pool is situated between the accommodation and 2.5-acre field.  It is fenced, with a padlocked gate and an alarm.

The pool is 10m x 5m and is suitable for exercise as well as for fun, however, it is not deep enough for diving.  It is heated from May through to October.

The large sun terrace features sun loungers and chairs, parasols and a solar heated shower.  Beside the pool there is a pirate ship called “The Green Pig”.  Sadly it doesn’t float but it’s fun to play on nonetheless.

The “Games Room” is in our small barn, with access from the courtyard.  Inside are a table-tennis table, a dart board, table football, a selection of free-weights and some bicycles.

Also stored here is the games equipment for all the outside activities such as football, badminton and petanque.  There is also a selection of buckets and spades etc, for when you visit the beach.

Our range of outdoor games provides fun activities for all ages and abilities, they include:




10 Pin Bowling

Selection of “Medieval” games


Ouside space is something that we have plenty of, with 10,000 m² set aside as gardens and another 12,000 m² used as grazing for horses.  For the past 9 years we have been host to “Hermine”.  She is a large, but extremely gentle, retired trotting horse (le Trotteur Français (the French Trotter).

There are a number of shady seating areas with tables and chairs, which can be moved around to suit your tastes. As well as flower beds, shrubs and trees, we have made areas for playing football, a boules court and space for badminton.

The courtyard is at the front of the property, where there is sufficient off-road parking for up to 8 cars.  It is South-facing, therefore it gets extremely hot during the day, please be careful about what is left inside cars.

Leading from the courtyard are the entrances to both gites, the indoor games room, and via a passageway, the gardens.

The laundry has a coin-operated washing machine.  There are sinks, a vacuum cleaner, iron and ironing board, clothes dryer, pegs, bucket and mop, etc.  Directly to the rear of the laundry there are 2 rotary washing lines.

This room is also our recycling centre.

Have we mentioned the “Tree Fairies”?  They are around, although, you will have to look really hard to find them.
