“Warm welcome & great base for family holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We have stayed at Dolphin Gites for 2 years now & have booked for next year too. Believe me, we are not the types to keep going back to the same place, but the welcome is so warm & there is so much to do that we can't beat it.

The accommodation is clean, simple & perfect for our family of 3. We spend most of the time at one of the great beaches or visiting the surrounding area, so we are only inside during the evening - DVD & British Sky TV are a bonus though!

The highlight of our holidays has been coming home from the beach late in the afternoon to plunge into the fantastic pool. And our 8 year old really enjoys playing in the lovely safe gardens with the other children.

All in all, great accommodation, lovely people, perfect location & fabulous Vendee weather - a package that we think can't be beaten. Thank you Cathy & Howard.

“Great location, friendly welcome.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We have stayed in this property several times and have always had a wonderful holiday. The gite is simple and unpretentious but very comfortable and well equipped with good sized bedrooms. The Anglo-French owners are very welcoming and helpful. The site is spacious and family friendly, with lovely garden areas and a good sized pool. Excellent beaches and cycle tracks are close by. We have always enjoyed meeting other families, around the pool or for an aperitif, but you can be as sociable or as private as you wish. Our children have always found playmates. The atmosphere is relaxed and overall we have always felt that the gite offers great value for money.
