We had a brilliant holiday here in summer 2012. The layout of the gites around a central enclosed garden is genius, and encourages a very social and convivial holiday for all. We made friends on our holiday at La Vendage that we still see today. However the accommodation suffers from a lack of love. We found everything a bit tatty... More

Richard D, Owner at La Vendange Family Friendly Gites, responded to this review

Readers should note that this review was from 2012 and there was a major refurbishment in 2013. Most of the gites were redecorated and a lot of work was done to replace worn facilities in the garden and barn. This included a new trampoline, new ping pong table and a new pool terrace. Our cleaners generally do a pretty good... More

We love it here. We have 2 girls age 4 and 6 and have been staying at La Vendange each summer for the past 4 years. It is perfect for children, very safe, with an enclosed garden and two lovely heated pools. There are swings, a slide, a trampoline and a shaded sandpit, not forgetting the chickens and quails all...

We didn't really know what to expect when we came here, as it's our first time in a Gite. The setting did not disappoint-beautiful rural countryside, yet easy to find (the Sat Nav took us straight here in just under two hours from Bordeaux airport). When we arrived our 2 year old son established himself straight away in the enclosed... More

We have stayed in 2 different gites and this year we will stay in another one. We love the location (but be prepared to drive to beach and larger towns) which is set in acres of countryside with field upon field on sunflowers - stunning in July. Rustic is the right description - it is not a destination for those... More

We spent 4 weeks in Syrah in June/ July 2010, our third trip to Richard's gites. The whole family (mum, dad and three small girls under 4) had a great time and we've booked to go back in 2011. As soon as we arrived the girls were running around the enclosed garden, and demanding to play on the trampoline. This... More

We had a fantastic time at La Vendange. Would highly recommend it to families with young children. Would definetly consider returning there again next year. There are some great day trips but we spend most of our time around the gite chilling while the kids had a ball playing in the garden. The pool was lovely and was a perfect... More

La Vendange is promoted as a small complex of five, three bedroom cottages where parents may socialise with other parents, or just relax on their own while the children play together. Although our cottages are clean and comfortable. We don't promote ourselves as catering to the "luxury" market. We often hold BBQs, scrabble evenings, pottery painting sessions and other communal...

Stayed in Clairette this year, the new larger gite with another couple and their small toddler. it worked really well for two families with two bedrooms and a bathroom on each floor. The kitchen diner is large and well equipped as is the lounge. The best bits are that there are front and back gardens with dining furniture, so you... More

Yes with nearly 150 young children on site during the course of each Summer, the toys do get worn out quite quickly ! Guest comments are always noted and we'll be getting in some new toys and children's bikes in time for the 2011 season. More

What a superb holiday. The Gites themselves are rustic - very authentic. Don't expect 5 star as you can't do that with this sort of place. But very welcoming and comfortable. It even has wireless broadband should you bring your laptop with you. It's old style farm-house - ad does it really well. There is a central garden written about... More
