“Tranquil & Delightful”
Reviewed August 28, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

From start to finish our time at Le Pinier was magical. Our kind hosts, Ian and Jane could not do enough for any of us. We arrive on time on the Friday, we were going to be a little early and although the cottage wasn't ready for us, Ian suggested that we use the garden and pool until it was and that's exactly what you want to hear when you've just driven for 5 hours!!

We stayed at 'Grandmere's" and was pleased to find it a cool, spacious, clean and comfortable gite with a nice little terrace at the from of the house where you can sit to watch the sun go down.

On the first evening all the hassle is taken away from you as the hosts cook dinner ! We had a lovely meal cooked for us by Ian where we had the opportunity to meet our fellow guests in a relaxed and very informal way.Ian also has a couple of bottle of the local wine for us to sample too which was very welcome.

The gite has a pool and a large garden that you have the run of, the pool is on the smaller side but it is perfectly adequate, clean and heated and is certainly needed when the temperature starts to rise as it did while we were there.

Le Pinier is in a quiet rural part of the Vendee. St.Hilalre de Voust is close as is the larger town of La Chataignerie. French roads are much less busy that British roads and superb to drive on. Therefore, there are large array of towns, villages and attractions which can easily be reached in no time at all. The Vendee is a beautiful part of France.

I cannot recommend Le Pinier highly enough and will definitely consider going back there. The one thing I would say to any potential traveller that have small or young children is; make sure that you have plenty to entertain the children as it is a rural and quiet setting. I would not recommend taking one child on their own as , other than the pool, it may be too quiet for them and we all know what it's like if the children are not entertained!!

Finally, don't hesitate. Book it now, you'll love it.
