“Relaxing holiday in the Vendee”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We have stayed in a number of holiday gites in France and in the UK and our stay in Le Vieux cafe was one of the best holidays we have had. The Le Vieux Cafe is very well equipped with no need to bring anything from home. All the rooms are large, light and airy with comfortable beds and plenty of space to store your clothes. Even a laptop is available with WiFi. You don't have to miss any favourite TV programmes as English channels are available.

The swimming pool is heated and is kept very clean, the area around the pool is very spacious, a lovely place to sit on sunny days.

An added bonus is a well equipped gym with a running machine, rowing machine, weights, and exercise mats. There is also a games room where you can play table tennis, and there are a number of DVD's and books to stop the children getting bored if the weather is bad.

Our hosts Annette and Jason made us very welcome, we enjoyed our holiday so much this year we have booked another holiday in their gite for another two weeks next year.

“Great for kids and all the family”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This property is very well placed - close to beaches and lots of interesting places to visit. We went on holiday with our five children (from age 3 to 15) plus the grandparents - fun for all the family. I was pleasantly surprised how well the property is stocked with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and the owners would find you whatever you needed if you were to ask. Jason even lent us his telescope! (very clear/dark skys) Fantastic games room amazing DVD/book library. Swimming pool was clean and warm every day. Can't thank our hosts enough for making our stay such a pleasure.

“Perfect location, house and hosts.”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Absolutely fabulous gite, catering for all your needs. The games room, garden and swimming pool were fantastic, with a wide range of toys, games, books and DVD's for all ages, there is no need to take anything with you other than your clothes. Jason and Annette were extremely welcoming hosts, very knowledgeable about the area and wanted to make out stay as perfect as they could. I would thoroughly recommend the gites to anyone with families as there is so much for the children.
