We have just returned from a week's stay at Les Chardonnerets. The party consisted of 12 adults and 13 children, although the accommodation could sleep up to about 28. The general layout of the gite and quality of fixtures and fittings was exceptional. 'This is better quality than my house said one of the guests, as he put his bread in the Dualit toaster!". Vendee is a wonderful area of France and this gite is about 45 mins from the beeches, an hour from La Rochelle and an hour from Puy Du Fou, which is a 'must see' day out for children and adults alike. The swimming pool was a lovely temperature and there was enough grounds to set up a volleyball net or play some cricket - so there is also plenty to do at the gite. The outside area was most used, with the BBQ employed most nights to feed hungry children and adults. Nearest supermarket is Lucon about 10 miles away, but the kids loved the morning walks to the village for pastries and bread. I really could not rate this place highly enough, and will hopefully return.
